Jack called in today’s post, although it is, unfortunately, largely unintelligible. Camp 1 is in a valley that drains from a large bowl that separates Aconcagua from Cerro Ameghino, it’s 20,000′ neighbor. Ameghino sits directly to the north of camp, and it’s towering height interferes with satellite connectivity. Communication from the next camp, at 18,000′ and just north of Ameghino, should be much better.
The weather has continued to be cold and windy, with snow forecasted for today and tomorrow. Camp 1 is a bit more sheltered than Camp 2, so I expect they are in no hurry to move up, given the heavy snow in the forecast.
