Aconcagua: Beren and Team Carry to Camp 2

The team is relaxing at Camp 1 for siesta time. In case all you fine folks back home think all we do is eat and nap, allow me to retort. We do as much of that as we can to be sure, but this morning we pushed a load up to 18,000 feet in preparation of our eventual move to Guanacos (named for the llama type creatures native to the lower flanks of the mountain) Camp, our Camp 2. After making it up there, we cached a fair bit of gear and beat feet back to Camp 1. Today serves to make our packs lighter for the move and give the team a taste of a new altitude. We will rest this afternoon and probably tomorrow before busting higher. By then out bodies should be lean, mean climbing machines.

Keep those fingers crossed amigos!

Jake, Mike, Steve and Team

New Years Eve at 16,000 feet. Sounds like a great time to me. I hope the weather continues to hold.

Happy New Year Steve and team!
