Aconcagua

Aconcagua: Nugent & Team Safely Back to Basecamp

Hey everyone, Billy calling checking in again. Had a really rough day coming down the mountain yesterday, but everyone made it down in one piece. We got back to High Camp with nice weather and then the weather just kinda gradually turned for the worst through the evening. And by about 5 In the morning, we were fighting about 80 mile an hour gust of winds just battling to keep our camp in one piece. And at first light, around 6:30, we pretty much had to get out of the tents and we’re just battling hurricane force winds and to get everybody’s stuff together and we got everything out of Camp Cholera.  Moved on down to our Camp 2 and reput up tents and cooked breakfast and filled water bottles and recuperated from the hellish evening.  And after that everybody walked on down to Basecamp last night and we enjoyed an awesome steak dinner, courtesy of the great Basecamp staff at Grajales. We are all geared up, everything’s been loaded on mules and we’re now headed for Pampa de Lenas and tonight will be our last night on the trail and tomorrow we are headed to Mendoza.  We’ll check in one more time tomorrow, after we’ve made it safely to the road.  Ciao, ciao.
