Aconcagua: King & Team and Another Rest Day at Camp 1

Weather day here at Camp 1. The team got it's first experience with the Aconcagua wind last night. The wind builds above us in the Ameghino Col to the point it sounds like a large set of waves hitting shore. You then hear the wind racing down towards our camp, suddenly bracing in your tent, the poles flex and fabric gets bead blasted with little rocks and dust. An eerie calm follows only to hear the wind building up again. Now repeat for 16 hours. Two down days in a row has the natives getting a little restless. Some will pace, some play cards and some will ask, "So this is mountaineering?" Tomorrow we will get a late start to allow the wind to dissipate before our move to Camp 2. Despite the restless energy all team members are doing great and the guides couldn't be more pleased with how everyone is acclimating and working together. All our best to everyone back home! "Estamos como queremos" RMI Guide Mike King

Put up #4 A-sail and surf to Camp 2, boys…sounds spectacular!  Be safe.

Perhaps the wind was just wishing Art a happy birthday! You’ll remember this one.
