Elevation: 19,600'

Hello -
We are back safely at high camp (19,600’) on Aconcagua. We had a long day up and down and everyone needs some food and hot drinks to recover. The day started cold then turned hot and now it is back to cold with blowing snow. We need a break!
We will spend the night here and tomorrow begin heading down hill.

Hasta manana,
RMI Guide JJ Justman

FRANK!!!! Congratulations!!!! It’s TIM, I was surfing the web and stumbled on to this ACONCAGUA expedition blog then remembered, you were climbing Aconcagua right now! So at least I think this is you?  I’ll tell Dusty and the other Tim you made it, and if you don’t know who Dusty and the other Tim is, then I guess I got the wrong frank, I’m talking to a complete stranger, and you think I’m nuts, but thats ok because if I got the wrong Frank then i don’t care what you think cuz i don’t know you, but come on how many franks could be climbing Aconcagua right now?  So when, no if you read this. I hope it made you laugh, even if you’re the wrong Frank, and Congratulations. You just climbed ACONCAGUA!!!
Sincerely Hope This is the Right Frank

PS- I’m trying to plan a climb of the north face of Mt.Rainier, in early summer, along Liberty Ridge. You want to come?
