Aconcagua: Justman & Team at High Camp

It was a day. We awoke to a foot of snow and 30mph winds at Aconcagua’s Camp 2, brr! After a slow morning breaking down camp we headed uphill through wind and snow toward Camp 3. It was hard going and the team had to dig deep to get to high camp, but everyone walked in together, heads high and looking forward to the next challenge. Tomorrow, we go for the summit!
