Aconcagua: RMI Team Moves to Camp 3

This is Gabi and the RMI Aconcagua expedition checking in from Camp 3 (19600’).

This morning we started at Camp 2 with an early breakfast. We started our ascent at 10:20 am and after 3 hours and 20 minutes of hard work we arrived at our high camp.

The weather this morning was awesome, no wind and warm temperatures (well, as warm as it could get at 18,000’). During the ascent clouds moved in and a cold breeze cooled us. At our arrival to Camp 3 a little bit of weather added some spice to our day. It snowed half a inch, but for a good 15 minutes it looked like it was going to keep snowing all night.

Current conditions are better. It is still cloudy, but it has stopped snowing and it looks like we are going to have a clear night. Our plan is to wake up early tomorrow morning (sometime between 3 and 5 am) and we will check the weather. If the weather is as the forecast is calling, we’ll have breakfast and start our summit attempt !

Stokemeter Everybody is very excited for tomorrow and the stokemeter is very high (8) at Camp 3!

We’ll be in touch tomorrow.

Ralph and I are keeping all the lousy weather here in the Northwest, so you should have excellent conditions for the summit! Go team go!
Looking forward to stories and photos,
