All’s going according to plan in Argentina and Antarctica. Greg called in Tue afternoon to say the team made the move to high camp. Weather’s good with only light winds. Everyone’s ready to take their shot on Wed. We have high hopes.
On Aconcagua, Josh and crew made a tough carry to C2, approx. 18,500’. Windy day made for a hard push. The chess game begins. How hard to push, when to push, and when to wait. Forecasts are just forecasts and not guarantees, but they help. Team is planning on just staying at C1 tomorrow and let the mountain ‘blow’ for another day. It’ll be good for their strength and acclimatization and just make them stronger for the days ahead.
