UPDATE: Day 7
Finally news from the crew! Today the guides posted an update about the climb and included a picture! Here's what Ryan had to say:
Hello back home from base camp. We had a great day climbing up to C1. It is what we call a carry day, each climber brought up some light personal gear to leave at camp one for when we make the move up to sleep there. It was a bit windy but clear and cool with views all around. We stashed our gear, ate some lunch and returned to basecamp. We will have a big dinner here tonight in our big dome tent and then enjoy a rest day tomorrow. Today our team did great and everyone is feeling good as we look forward to moving higher!
Chris looks happy and excited!! And it looks like a beautiful day for a climb!
Also, wanted to include a picture of Aconcagua from Google Earth with some way-points so that it's easier to understand each leg of the trip. Take a look at the image below keeping in mind that the crew just finished the carry day to Camp 1 and came back down to spend the night at Basecamp!
