Peter Anderson called in from Camp 1 on Aconcagua after their carry to Camp 2 earlier today. The carry went ‘smoothly’.
The weather has been great and the team is doing pretty well, though a stomach bug has been making its way around the team and from the sounds of it around the mountain and several other teams. No immediate plan for tomorrow has been made, they’ll either take a rest day or will push up to C2.
On the other side of the mountain is Mike Hamill and his team. They moved up to Camp Canada today and even took a little hike after dropping their gear at camp. They might take a rest day tomorrow or they might head up to Nido de Condores – it just depends on how the team is feeling after a nights sleep a little higher on the mountain.
Back in Mendoza, Ty and Peter are putting the final touches on their program… Translation: cleaning and checking the tents then going to a winery for a late lunch. Also in Mendoza, and likely at the winery, is Greg Vernovage. His Aconcagua team lands in a few days.
