Josh Tapp called in from Camp 1 today with good news – they carried to C2 without issue. Their feathers were ruffled a little in last night’s storm that handed them 50mph+ winds, but in the end everything held up nicely. They’re a fit crew. They’ll move to C2 tomorrow.
And Eben called in one last time to report that they are officially off the mountain. Just an 18 mile hike out today down a dry river bed. Wind at their backs and heads held high after a great Aconcagua Expedition. They capped the day off with a nice steak sandwich in Penitentes (hot sauce optional).
