The climb to base camp is not, in itself, a tough climb. However, breathing while doing so is a different story. This wasn't unexpected, but is interesting to experience, slowly ambling uphill in aerobic distress.
We were not blessed with the best weather for it, in terms of views of Aconcagua itself, but that is the lottery with any such activity. Our guide Rocie was helpful and attentive and a pleasure to be with, and very informative. All in all, a good day out, and a good step towards fitness for later climbs on our overall trip.
