The wind is being persistent on Aconcagua. Rob and crew have made it to Camp I at approximately 16,400′ and they’re getting a good dose of high winds but are hunkered down for the night. The forecast is calling for the winds to start calming down tomorrow and we will hope this holds true. Tomorrow will either be a “wake up and wait it out” kind of day or they’ll attempt a carry of equipment and food up to Camp II. Good job to this team for staying strong and establishing camp in tougher conditions. They’re doing well.
