Two calls just came in from Aconcagua. Greg Vernovage and team decided to stay at C2 today. Just too windy and no pressing need to get a carry in today. Forecast remains reasonable so best to sit tight and put that carry in tomorrow.
Mike Hamill and team just pulled into base camp at Plaza Argentina. Not a cloud in the sky but windy. That confirms what Greg said. Mike will take tomorrow off, for sure.
Bottom line, all is OK with both teams on Aconcagua. Weather hasn’t been a big issue so everyone’s in pretty good spirits. One day at a time, now.
