Aconcagua Expedition: Carry to Camp 2

Elevation: 16,200'

Another day of near perfect weather! So, we took advantage by bringing another load of supplies further up the mountain to our Camp 2 or Chopper Camp. There used to pieces of a wrecked helicopter strewn about camp but today’s visit confirmed the fact that most of the wreckage has been removed. All of the guys on the team performed extremely well on our first mission above 18,000’.  Upon returning to camp it seems that several teams moved up today so there’s lots of room in Camp 1. Right now we’re laying around after the day’s work contemplating our next move…

All for now,
