Ron called in the evening dispatch from our Dec 19 Aconcagua team today. Their task for the day was to climb up to Camp 2 at around 18,000ft to acclimatize and drop off some gear before returning back down to Camp 1 for another night. They had a great day, everyone moved really well and were up and down in just 5 hours while still having an opportunity to sit and enjoy the spectacular views.
They are back down in Camp 1 for the night, everyone is doing great, and they’re looking forward to packing up camp and moving on up to Camp 2 tomorrow!
Here’s Ron with the evening dispatch:
