Mike and team got up to C2 on the Horcones side of Aconcagua today. Winds seem less than on the Vacas side of the mountain. A carry to high camp is likely in order tomorrow.
Peter and team concluded moving up today to C2 didn’t make sense for them on the Vacas side. Forecast call for the winds to keep decreasing through Wednesday so they’re trying to be patient. Reports of tents being damaged at C2 validate their decision. It’s not easy to wait when you want to move higher but their plan makes sense. They have time. Hopefully, they move to C2 tomorrow.
