Buenos Tardes from Campo Uno! Today the team did a fantastic job moving from Aconcagua’s Basecamp in style and we rolled into camp under perfect conditions. Our carry served us well, providing a good acclimatization base for our move today. Tomorrow we will enjoy a little light activity, but mostly rest and celebrate Leon’s cumpleanos.

Loving the blog and the first action photo! Josh, look for me near Camp 2—just listen for the cow bell. Until then, keep up the good work!

  Keep that good weather coming! I’m flying in tomorrow and will be a week behind you on the mountain.  Travel well and best to your entire team!  Having been on your Rainier teams on the DC & Kautz, I know they are in good hands. Be sure to tell them about your sister and the wind :)  Rock on ~
