Aconcagua: Nugent & Team Move to Camp 2

Elevation: 18,000'

Billy here, checking in from Camp 2 at over 18,000’ on Aconcagua! The rumored winds did indeed materialize today but they also came with perfectly clear skies and were thus not enough of a hindrance to keep us stuck at Camp 1. Our team looked awesome on our move today with everybody moving well and climbing strong despite the elevation, big loads, and the gusting breeze. We’ve set up shop here at Chopper Camp (although nobody seems to call it that since they cleaned up all the wreckage that used to be strewn about camp) and are enjoying a sunny afternoon. Today’s move only took 2 hours and 45 minutes, which speaks for this team’s strength and bodes well for summit day.

More as it develops… Wulpseeya!

Just a walk in the park.  Billy is making yall sound like a bunch of climbing badasses, no doubt it’s true. Congrats on making it to Camp 2.
