Hi, This is Max Kausch writing a dispatch for the SummitClimb January 2014
Aconcagua Expedition. Today we have a sunny Tuesday Jan 14th at Plaza de Mulas,
Aconcaguaīs BC (base camp) at the west side.
All members are doing great and acclimatizing super well. Mike, Ashok, Komal
and the Brazilians made it safely to BC yesterday late afternoon and we got
here in time to enjoy a nice sunset while eating watermelon.
Today is our rest day and our load carrying starts tomorrow. Looks like the
good weather might hold for another 2 days and bad weather is coming on the
17th. I hope we are at BC for that! Aconcagua hasnīt had any snow for 25 days
now and high camps are dangerously dry. Our water comes from snow melting
above BC so we depend on storms for success.
Thanks for following our team.
