The Alpamayo Expedition team led by SJMG Andrés Marin, Brad Johnson, and Alex Torres is doing great. Together with 6 guests, they are a solid team of climbers. Yesterday they started in on the Santa Cruz Valley Trail at Cashapampa (July 5), burros loaded with gear. They hiked to the Llama-Coral Camp yesterday where they made their first camp. We receive IN Reach Messages from the team daily. This afternoon they messaged that they arrived to Base Camp and everyone is doing super good. Base Camp is at (14,107 ft. or 4,300 m.) in the Arhuaycocha Gully, which overlooks the beautiful Lago Arhuaycocha. Glad to hear all is well, wishing them a wonderful journey in the Cordillera Blanca of the Peruvian Andes.
See where they are camping tonight.
