Aconcagua: Carry to Camp 1

The group woke for the third morning under the shadows of Ameghino and our objective, Cerro Aconcagua. The skies were a brilliant blue, and excitement ran high in the group over breakfast as everyone prepared for the day’s carry to Camp 1 (16,350’). Group loads of food were doled out, and the group took up the slow, but steady pace that will be our mantra for the rest of the climb.

It took us 4 1/2 hours to reach Camp 1. We took a nice 45 minute rest there and then we headed down to basecamp arriving by 5:00 pm. The descent took us less than half of our ascent time. Route conditions between basecamp and Camp 1 were very nice compared with what I have experienced in the last 10 years.

StokemeterTomorrow we will take one more rest day with the relative comforts of basecamp, before our move to Camp 1. We’ve received some of the posts left on the blog, and we are all grateful for your well-wishes.

Signing off,
Gabriel Barral and the RMI Aconcagua expedition
