Aconcagua: King & Team Move to Camp 2 in Warm Weather

Our rest day ended with three inches of snow falling on camp with little to no wind and some spectacular heat lightning across the Vacas Valley. It’s like one of those quiet winter nights where you wake to a yard filled with snow. We got underway by 9 am and moved camp to 18,000’. With all the new snow and still air we were roasting by the time we reached Amegino Col. The weather this trip has been atypical in that we have had three nights of snow, light to no wind and abnormally warm temperatures. The Team is currently in their tents riding out another snow fall and will hopefully have a good night’s rest at the new altitude. Tomorrow we will carry food and fuel to high camp to continue our acclimatization. The Team has appreciated the blog comments, and send their love to family and friends back home.

Hope all continues to go well and you can make your summit try before the weather window closes!
All is well here and we are experiencing quite a warm up after our plunge into the deep freeze. Much love and stay safe.
