Aconcagua: Beren & Team Ready to Move to Camp 1

Today we enjoyed the first break in the wind we’ve seen up here and made a very productive carry to Camp 1. This not only put some much needed supplies higher on the mountain, but gave us a chance to taste our thinnest air so far and work on our high altitude techniques for later on. Tomorrow we will move up to Camp 1 if weather permits and be one step closer to higher exploration.

Tonight after our climbing was complete, we had a great (hopefully) last meal for a while here at BC. It really fueled us for a big day tomorrow, but not nearly as much as reading all the blog responses from everyone back home. Thanks.

PS. Happy Birthday to il Padrino.

Keep going, Josh!  I wore a bow tie the last two days at work.  I am assuming you’re doing the same up there.

Good Luck Team!  We miss Uncle Josh in Wisconsin.  Ben and Gus are hiking up Cardboard Hill pretending to be Uncle Josh!

Awesome stuff you guys! Make sure Josh Gentine doesn’t eat more than his fair share of the rations… Clydesdales can be like that.

Power on, lads and lassies:  one foot, other foot as you acclimate to challenging new conditions.
