  Aconcagua 2015 Begins Training

17 January 2015 -

Hi there! This is Max Kausch writing a dispatch for the SummitClimb January Aconcagua expedition. WeŽre acclimatizing and very well at Plaza de Mulas, AconcaguaŽs basecamp 4300m high. Today is January 17th and our rest day.

All the 16 expedition members are acclimatizing very well and we all look forward to move up the mountain. We went to the base of the south face on the 15th and took amazing photos. That really helped on the acclimatization as the human body produces red cells based on the altitude we spent most of the day.

WeŽll start setting higher camps tomorrow. Thank you for following the blog at SummitClimb.com.
