Aconcagua: Smith & Team Settling In at 18,000’

On the road again! We said goodbye to Aconcagua Camp 1 today and hello to Camp 2. It was a beautiful morning for breaking down camp, with virtually no wind and the sun shining down on us. As we waited for the porters to come help carry some gear, we saw a furry critter scamper across the slopes above. Our guess is it was a fox. Its always exciting see wildlife. After jamming out to tunes in our respective earbuds, we arrived at camp. Camp was a lot quieter from when we left it on our carry day. Other teams moved to high camp, creating space for us. Once again we set up camp and began nesting in our new home. Summit day is just around the corner, but first we will do a carry to high camp tomorrow and rest the following day. The air is a little colder at our new camp. The zipper on our sleeping bags will go a tad higher tonight to keep in the warmth.

Happy friday everyone,

RMI Guide Hannah Smith and team

Hi Dad and team,

Thank you so much for the updates and the amazing pictures. It has been such a joy being able to follow your journey and know everyone is thriving and is safe. It’s great to see everyone happy and healthy! Wishing you all strong legs and lungs for the trek to the summit.

Not much new here. We had 3 days of a little snow, which led to most of the Seattle/PNW “shutting down.” Back to rain.
