Aconcagua Expedition:  Team Moves to Camp 2

Elevation: 18,000'

Hola amigos de Guanacos Camp (Camp 2)! We awoke to perfectly clear, blue skies so we took advantage by breaking down camp early and ascending up to Camp 2 where we are currently well established. However, this morning’s blue skies have given way to some clouds and flurries. Seems like we’ve timed tomorrow’s rest day perfectly with some crappy weather. Right now there’s an ominous lenticular cloud engulfing the summit but the team remains optimistic because there should be a break in the weather beginning Monday evening. We are all feeling great and climbing exceptionally well. Tonight is also Michael’s birthday and we intend to do our best to celebrate it at well over 18,000’.
