Aconcagua: Carry to Camp 3

Posted by: | January 19, 2011
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Aconcagua
Elevation: 19,600'

Despite weather forecasts calling for high winds, we woke to clear skies, cool temps, and dissipating winds. By mid-morning, the weather looked good enough to do our carry. Our loads where light today as we only had to move three days worth of food, as well as a small amount of personal gear up hill to camp 3. The group climbed in style, arriving at our 19,600 ft camp in about 3.5 hours. The descent went quickly, and the group is back in camp resting, re-hydrating, and preparing for our last rest day before the summit push.

Stokemeter The stoke meter boosted to 8 today with our beautiful weather and successful carry.

We’ll check in tomorrow with tales of rest day shenanigans.
