Aconcagua: Stevens & Team Carry to High Camp

Today started early for the team when a wind storm kicked up through camp in the middle of the night, snapping anchor lines and making sleep quite difficult. We did manage to grab a few zzzz’s, however, in between resetting anchors. But the nighttime fun ensured we were all up with the sun, ready for hot drinks and a hot breakfast.

We spent a couple of hours after breakfast reinforcing the rock walls around the tent platforms, and then packed up personal climbing gear for a carry to Camp 3 at 19,600’. The team moved well as we got higher and higher, with the thin air forcing each of us to concentrate on good rest stepping and being as efficient as possible.  The wind stayed with us all day, making our down layers feel nice despite the bright sun.

We dropped our cache at high camp and headed back down.  Many personal altitude records were set today, as the team remains strong. An early dinner was in order and now we’re tucked into sleeping bags, hoping for calmer weather and a more restful night.

Now it’s just a waiting game; waiting for the right forecast and good weather for our launch towards high camp and the summit bid. Thanks for your support and we’ll follow up tomorrow!

Go team!  I checked the mountain summit forecast and it looks like the winds will be slowing down some on Saturday and Sunday, with a change of some snow on Saturday night.  Y’all stay safe and warm.  Sending love and good summit juju.
