Hey everyone this is JJ Justman with Team Two on Aconcagua. I believe you all heard through my last dispatch that we were on the summit of Aconcagua. I just want to report that everyone is safe and sound. We are here at high camp.  Our work is not yet, at least not for the guides.  We are busy getting water and snow melting to get everyone rehydrated and refueled.  We had a long day, probably had to say that it was one of my toughest climbs in regards to the weather. It was cold and windy and just took a lot out of us. The team did an absolutely fantastic job!  I’m really proud of everyone they did a great job climbing and we are really happy to be back at camp.

We are going to be heading back to Base Camp tomorrow.  That’s a big day of carrying heavy loads. We do have some porters coming up to help out, which is good. We will touch base tomorrow when we get back into Base Camp.  We will get into some of those nice luxuries that we have been missing for the past week or so.  Thanks for following along everyone, we will touch base tomorrow.

Bye Bye!
