Greg called in to report that all is well back at Camp 1. The team had a solid carry to Camp 2 today, dropping off some of items they don’t necessarily need now, but will need up higher on the mountain. Common items carried and cached are ice axes, crampons, extra food and fuel. “Climb high, sleep low” is the mantra in the mountains – especially on Aconcagua.
Camp 2 sits a stones throw under 18,000ft, likely a high point for most of the team, but they’re not done just yet. They’ll make the return trip to C2 tomorrow and move in for the night.
