Aconcagua Expedition: Weather Day At Camp 1

Elevation: 16,200'

Hi there,
We woke up this morning at Camp 1 with high winds, and big plumes of spin drift on the saddle above us, so we decided to stay here for one more day. Our current plan, based on the short good weather window that the forecast has given us, is to move to camp 2 tomorrow, the next day move to Camp 3 and the next day go for the summit!

The group is very excited about the new plan after having been inside the tents for the last 48 hours.  The winds at this moment have started to slow down, so it looks like the forecast is right.

We will check in tomorrow from Camp 2.
