Lisa called in a fun update from the Plaza Argentina Base Camp, located at 13,800′ on the east side of Aconcagua. The team is doing great and enjoying some really nice weather. Base Camp is an interesting place, as Lisa hints at in her post. There are often climbers from all parts of the globe milling about, acclimatizing and an equally high number of local support staff, porters and guides. In a nutshell- it’s a fun place!
Below are some images of the terrain they climbed through en route to camp today. But first, here’s Lisa!
