Aconcagua: Move to Camp 2

Elevation: 18,000'

The crew moved up to Chopper Camp.  It’s currently dumping up here, with the forecast calling for 4-6” of accumulation.  Tomorrow’s plans call for a quick carry to Plaza Cholera (high camp) which means we’re getting close to pulling the trigger on our summit assault.  We need some cooperation from the weather but it looks like we’re going to get a good window in the upcoming days! 

Stoke meter is climbing (with the barometer)!

Enjoy the rest days. When the hots are up, go get um…fill up with all the great oatmeal and pasta your guide prepare for you. Summit day is a bit long, but well worth the effort when you step onto the top. Git-er-done team two!!! Hey Pete…hope you’re enjoying #2…remember…only one trip up to the summit this time!!!

Erin, team one member.
