Aconcagua: Justman & Team Move to Camp 2 “Chopper Camp”

Clouds followed us up the mountain today from Camp One to Camp Two. Luckily, the group walked strong and we got to ‘Chopper Camp’ with enough time to set up tents and drink some soup before the snow started. Now, we’re all tucked in and waiting to see what the weather does. With a bit of snow in the forecast, we’re glad to be nestled in Camp Two instead of on the more exposed slopes of Camp One. The sun, the snow, and the waiting, it’s all part of mountaineering, and it keeps things interesting!

We’ll touch base again tomorrow and let you know how the climb progresses!

Hi there Katrina; I am a cousin of your grandfather and jolly proud that one of my family does such brave things in the mountains. Are you going to be with the team for Mt Rainier this summer? I have a daughter living nearby there so Mt Rainier is one of my beautiful sites.
Keep up the good work!

Looks like Acongagua has almost as much snow as NYC.  The boys got their wish and had a snow day today, but went to Mommie’s office for free-pizza lunch.  Stay warm!
