Aconcagua Expedition: Piedras Blancas Dispatch

Elevation: 19,600'

Today we moved from Guanacos Camp to our high camp at Piedras Blancas on Aconcagua. The team moved quite well and we pulled into camp in the early afternoon with plenty of time to set up shop and have a siesta before an early dinner. The weather is the wild card here, if it is climbable tomorrow we will go for the top. If not, we are prepared to wait it out. Wish us luck.

P.S. A very happy birthday to il Padrino!
