The view from Canada Camp (C1) on Aconcagua

Our Aconcagua team moved up to Camp 1 (5060m/16,600ft) (aka Canada Camp) today where they plan to spend one night before making a single carry/move to Camp 2 (5522m/18,117ft) tomorrow. Here’s team member, Josh G., from Camp 1 with today’s expedition dispatch:

Hey!  Josh here from Aconcagua in Argentina!  We made it up to Camp 1 today.  2,200 foot climb and made it in three hours and ten minutes with all of our team members making it safely up to Camp 1.  Tomorrow we move up to Camp 2 at about 5500m (18,045ft) and it’s going to be one of our heaviest days.  So, we’re looking forward to the challenge.

I would like to say hey to [garbled], April, and all my friends back in Helen, Georgia.  I miss you guys!
