Aconcagua: Nugent and Team Carry to Camp 2

We are continuing to plod our way slowly but steadily up this mountain. Our team woke to beautiful blue skies this morning and took advantage of the good weather by putting in another cache up at our Camp 2, which also goes by the names “Guanacos Camp 3,” and “Chopper Camp.” No matter what you call it, it sits at over 18k’ and is one of the last spots with running water as you ascend. We made short work of the carry, climbing the 2,000’ or so in 3 stretches and made even shorter work of the descent back to Camp 1. The skies clouded up this afternoon so we got to enjoy some comfortable napping temps in the tents. We spent the rest of the day eating napples, reading, and listening to tunes. Rumors of deteriorating weather have us pondering our next move but our plans call for another rest and acclimatization day.

We’ll see what Mother Nature has in store for us,

RMI Guide Billy Nugent

Nugent, when you hit the casino after your climb make sure to look for a guy wearing a Ferrari tshirt. In the mean time hide your knife from the gouchos!
