Aconcagua: Day 2 of the Approach, Casa de Piedra

Greetings from Casa de Piedra, at 10,600’ in the Vacas valley.

We woke this morning to clear blue skies and cool temperatures after yesterday’s rain. The cloudless day lifted our spirits and dried our gear as we had a delicious breakfast of eggs with cheese & peppers, fresh oranges, and hot chocolate. We packed our gear for the mules and loaded up our day packs for the trek from Leñas to Casa de Piedra, and headed up the valley.

The sunny skies kept us warm as we passed guanacos and liebres (Argentine jackrabbits), and the team strolled into camp feeling strong and excited for the challenges ahead. While the wind has picked up since our arrival, we’re anticipating another beautiful day tomorrow on our way to Basecamp at 13,800’. It will be an early night tonight and an early morning tomorrow, but the stoke is high and we feel good about what lies ahead. We’ll check in tomorrow - until then, keep sending the positive vibes!

Cheers,
Garrett and the RMI Aconcagua Expedition
