The group has set­tled into Nido de Con­dors, and every­one is doing well. Tomor­row they’re plan­ning to car­ry some gear to Cholera, and then they’ll return to Nido de Con­dors to con­tin­ue the acclima­ti­za­tion process. Every­one is doing very well despite the unusu­al­ly cold tem­per­a­tures, and the group is encour­aged by clear skies. They’re cross­ing their fin­gers that the weath­er holds for a sum­mit push on Wednesday.

The group miss­es Bar­ry, who had to return to Men­doza, but they’re think­ing of him often. Accord­ing to Ozzy, he’s con­fi­dent that every­one else in the group has a great shot at a suc­cess­ful sum­mit attempt!

Stay tuned for more updates on our Aconcagua expedition!
