Aconcagua Team – Jack Checks in From Base Camp

Jack Strickland called in today from the team’s Base Camp at Plaza Argentina, on the east side of Aconcagua.  Today was a rest day, spent lounging around Base Camp, resting and acclimatizing.  Tomorrow, the plan is to head up the mountain, moving up to sleep at 16,400′ (5000m) at their Camp 1.

The weather has been tough and the forecast looks for more of the same.  Jack’s optimism reflects the good spirits of the team as they are ready to make their push up the east flank of South America’s highest mountain.

Here’s Jack:

  1. Everyone is asking me about you guys and the weather up there on the mountain. It sounds like all is well, and we are so happy to hear Jack say exactly that. Everyone loves you and is praying for all three of you to have a safe, invigorating and fulfilling trip up this big mountain _ and back down in time for Christmas. Love, Carolyn
