We heard from Peter Anderson and Team 3 last evening. Camp 2 has now been occupied and the team continues to do well. Now, the strategy game gets more difficult. They’re watching the weather and the forecast, trying to get a feel for when a summit window will be available. And, the guides are watching their team. You can’t push too hard or too fast or you burn someone out. But you want to be in position to take advantage of any openings the mountain gives you up high, and it will. The trick is to be in position when the time is right.
It’s been a bit windy but that’s not unusual for Aconcagua. And, the higher they climb, the better the views.
Stay with us and we’ll see how this unfolds.
