Aconcagua team carrying loads to Camp 2

The team carried a pile of gear, food and fuel up to their next camp today, then returned to Camp 1 to spend another night.   It was a beautiful day and everybody did great ascending the 2000+ ft to “Helicopter Camp” in just 4 hours.  They climbed to over 18,000 ft today, but will return to Camp 1 to sleep and let their bodies acclimate to the new altitude a bit before moving up tomorrow.

Here’s the call from Camp 1:
