Aconcagua: Gorum & Team Move to Camp 1

The team has left Basecamp! We are officially on the mountain now, and our timing could not have been better. When we arrived in Basecamp we were the only ones there, and as of yesterday evening there were 64 people. We have all of Camp One to ourselves, however, and we should stay about a step ahead of the masses.
The group broke down camp quickly this morning, we ate a nice breakfast, finalized our plans with the Basecamp staff, and hit the trail by 8:45. A nice breeze kept things cool for us today. We got to camp around 1:15 this afternoon, and set up camp efficiently. This group doesn’t mess around with tents. A couple hours of hardcore, downright chillin’ brought us to an early dinner of ravioli, and lentils and rice for our more gluten-challenged climbers. A surly snow squall sent everyone to their tents after dinner, and that’s where we are now. Everyone is feeling great, and our plan is to carry to Camp 2 tomorrow. The team sends their best to everyone back at home.

Congratulations JM!  I was more than a bit nervous for you.  Anyway, I have been working on new, “why is 6 afraid of 7?” Jokes for you and am signed up for Rainier again next June.  Make it back safe!  Xoxo
