Aconcagua: Justman & Team Make a Carry to Camp 1

Up, up and away!  Team 3 had a spectacular day carrying gear up to Camp One at 16,500 feet. We brought up all the food for the upper mountain, fuel for our stoves and a little bit of personal clothing and gear.

It is nice in a weird way to throw on heavier packs and get a taste of thin air. The entire team did great and in reality we probably don’t need to take another rest day here at base camp. However, we will.

Tomorrow we will rest and it will only provide every team member a stronger foundation for the upper mountain. There is no doubt a good part of high altitude mountaineering is about fighting the boredom. But as I sit here some team members are playing cribbage and others are playing some other game. The betting stakes Re cough drops and single sheets of toilet paper.

It was nice to see the beautiful views up high on Aconcagua and we will post more exciting events from base camp and who may be out of toilet paper!
