Andrey Berezin, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Argentina:

News from Aconcagua. Our team is now called Los Bandidos. Yesterday we came to the Confluencia camp, and this morning we made an trek under the Southern Face of Aconcagua.  We reached an altitude of 4000 meters, where we spent half an hour eating sandwiches and drinking tea for acclimatization. After that, we returned to Confluencia, where we rested for the rest of the day and prepared for tomorrow's move up to the Plaza de Mulas base camp. In the evening, the whole group passed a Medical Check - a mandatory confirmation of physical condition for the visit  to the Base Camp.  Tomorrow we leave for the Plaza de Mulas camp.  The guides of the group are Andrey Berezin and Viktor Volodin.
