Aconcagua: Stevens & Team Rest Day at Camp 1

One of the hardest things about climbing big mountains is managing your time. There are days when you have to hammer down, grab that pack, and head up. Today, thankfully, wasn’t one of those days.

Instead, we took a rest day here at Camp 1. More sun and light winds made it a pleasant day to be calm and quiet around camp, to catch up on stories from other team members, and continue our hydration.

We’ll be moving tomorrow, so a day to replenish and refuel before going higher was definitely appreciated. We will check in from Camp 2 tomorrow…until then, keep your fingers crossed for continued good weather!

Stefan and group. Keep up the hard work you can do this:-) Hope you are having a great time. It is freezing here in Florida.

To Bill and the rest of the team: keep going strong! We are all in awe of this adventure, and look forward to hearing your stories when you’re home safe and sound. Cheers!
