Aconcagua: Beren & Team Arrive to Camp 2 in Grand Style

Elevation: 18,000'

Even the heavy packs of a full camp move could not dampen the team’s spirits as we left Aconcagua Camp 1 for our new home at Camp 2 aka “Chopper Camp” aka “Guanocos 3.”  The team arrived in the grand style to which we have become accustomed, with plenty of gas in the tank and fashionably dressed. We are now starting to feel like all our hard work is paying off, only one more camp before our summit push. Tomorrow we’ll have a rest day and then, weather permitting, initiate our launch sequence. Cross your fingers for a solid weather window for us amigos!

New Year’s Resolutions: 1) climb (another) one of the Seven Summits. Check. Not many people will be able to say that on Jan 1, Josh! Happy 2013 and wish you could join us tonight! Hope you’re staying warm, enjoying the views, and feeling strong. Praying for good weather for a safe summit and descent!
