Hola from Camp 1 on Aconcagua! 

We had a good stroll up to 16,500’ under clear skies but with a fair bit of wind all day.  The team handled the conditions very well and we made efficient work of the stretch.  Once at camp we settled in, pitching tents in two big teams to make sure we didn’t lose one of our precious homes.  Since arriving, the winds have died down a little and our most recent forecast reflects our observations for the next few days! 

Looking good from up here in the atmosphere.
