From AAI guide Tad McCrea....

The AAI Aconcagua team took a well deserved rest day on Saturday Jan 13th. All the medical checks went well. 

Today, Sunday January 14th, the team cached some gear, equipment and food at Camp 1 (16,400ft/5,000m) and returned to Base Camp. This carry took about 5 hours. A nice easy 2 miles and 2,800ft of elevation gain. 

A small snow storm came in on us at the cache, giving us a taste of whats to come.
