All is well on Aconcagua. Luke and team have made their move up to C2. Weather is reasonably good and members are doing well. First night at the new altitude is always a little ‘tough’ and the team will either make a carry to high camp tomorrow or take a rest day at C2, depending how everyone’s feeling. We have a few contingency days available on the schedule and those days get used for rest or weather as needed.
Eric and team had their first day of walking today. Team is supported by mules the first three days so their packs are light going into base camp. All is well lower on the mountain, too.
