Hello all and welcome to the AAI Aconcagua Team dispatch.

Yesterday, Monday Jan 8, the team met at a local hotel in Mendoza and prepared their personal gear. Unfortunately, there was a baggage issue (putting it lightly) and after a long day of waiting, baggage finally arrived.

As of this morning, the AAI Aconcagua team is heading to the park office to purchase climbing permits and then will be off to Penitentes to begin the expedition!

Penitentes is roughly a 3 hour drive form Mendoza. The team will stay at a hotel over night and then strike out for Papa de Lenas.
