The Aconcagua team today moved up to Nido de Cóndores our Camp 2 at 5585m/18,325ft. Here’s Garrett’s dispatch:
Hello, this is Garrett calling in for the Aconcagua climb. Today we climbed up to Camp 2 – Nido de Cóndores on Aconcagua on the normal route. Everybody did great! We got up to camp, set up our tents, relaxed a little bit, and then had a nice dinner. Now we are getting ready to go to bed. The weather’s pretty good up here – not too windy, sunny. We are hoping for a good day tomorrow to do a carry to Camp 3 if weather permits, otherwise we’ll probably take a rest day at Camp 2. Thanks for following along. We’ll check-in soon!
By the way, it’s not too early to start making your plans to join us on other expeditions in the 2020 season! Contact our office for details.
