Nickel checked in today with a simple message. “Very high winds above us today, so we are going to take a rest day at Nido de Condores.” The Team is working through some tough conditions today; however, they are making good decisions to hang tight and stay strong. After a couple good days of work and plenty of contingency, why push it? They have plenty of food and water; and when the wind picks up just a little bit, I bet this guide team has some stories that will bring laughter not regularly heard at Nido de Condores!
All is well on Aconcagua and if the weather allows, the team will carry to High Camp tomorrow!
