Hi there, This is Max Kausch writing a dispatch for the Aconcagua SummitClimb
January Expedition 2015. We´re all very well at Plaza de Mulas 4300m and today
is January 19th 2015.
Our team went to Camp 1 5050m, yesterday to take a few loads. This really
helps on acclimatization! Our summit push starts tomorrow and we plan to
summit around January 23rd or 24th. The whole team is very well and happy
resting here at basecamp. Thanks for following our dispatches.
