Aconcagua: Beren & Team Make Their Move to High Camp

Greetings from high camp at 19,600 ft!  Today we made use of a good forecast and the first break in the wind in recent memory to move up. Now we are in striking distance of the top, getting ready for dinner before an early bedtime. The team again performed well getting here and if this calm weather holds, we will go for the top tomorrow!  We’ve enjoyed everyone’s comments and the crew is in great spirits having put forth an impressive effort so far. With any luck we will only head uphill for one more day before starting the long return to Mendoza. Wish us luck!

Best wishes to the team from WBYeats:  “. . . take me out of this dull world, for I would ride with you upon the wind and dance upon the mountain like a flame.”  Power on, you are all so close to your goal.
