I spoke to both Allen and Nick yesterday, and they reported that the team made good time to Casa Piedra, “stone house,” the team’s second approach camp. Nick mentioned that it was a particularly windy day, but everyone is doing great and feeling good. Today the team plans to depart Casa Piedra, cross the Vacas River, and take a big westerly turn and continue up the Relinchos Valley. It’s a beautiful, interesting hike winding up the Relinchos Valley, and this afternoon the team will arrive at Plaza Argentina.
The team tried to call in a report yesterday, but the connection wasn’t strong enough and the call dropped. I’m sure we will hear from the team tonight.
