Aconcagua: Rest Day at Camp 1
Today is a much deserved rest day, after yesterday’s trip to Guanacos Camp (Camp 2) at 18,000’. The team slept well despite last night’s wind, which wasn’t quite as strong as the night before but was still strong enough to keep the tents flapping and creaking throughout the night. We woke this morning to more beautiful azure skies and golden sun, which quickly warmed the tents and our spirits. We had an impromptu team meeting during our breakfast of oatmeal and cocoa to discuss the upcoming legs of the climb, and everyone is ready to keep moving towards the top! We’re spending the remainder of today indulging in delicious lunch foods and conserving energy for tomorrow’s move to Camp 2.
Today’s stoke meter remains high, with an average of 8. Stay tuned for more details as we move higher on the mountain. Cheers!
