First Andes peak in the bag

It was a tiny peak at only 10000′. Probably didn’t have a name, but it was something. The terrain here is spectacularly rugged and stark.

The first half of yesterday we drove out from Mendoza to Penitentes where we spent the night in a hotel across from a small ski resort. It gets two very important things right: food and hot showers. Today we start the approach Aconcagua!
