Climbing on Aconcagua

Aconcagua Polish Traverse team

Andrew Wexler called in from Camp 1 on Aconcagua. The group is doing well. They are at Camp 1 for their last night. It has been snow­ing for 2 days and is snow­ing now. Yes­ter­day they made a car­ry with sup­plies to Camp 2 and plan to move up to Camp 2 tomor­row to set­tle in for our sum­mit push. The snow is mak­ing things a bit chal­leng­ing, but is good for con­di­tions over­all and if the weath­er clears allows for some­times eas­i­er trav­el than over what can be scree slopes in dry con­di­tions. So, wish them luck in the upcom­ing days!

In the mean­time, Andrea wants to say hel­lo to her mom and hopes the knee surgery went well. David Krause wants his friends and fam­i­ly to know that he is feel­ing strong and has fin­ished the 7th Har­ry Pot­ter. So, the team is hang­ing tough for now. The fore­cast looks a bit iffy, but they will most like­ly go for a sum­mit push either the 17th or 18th, as the weath­er looks to dete­ri­o­rate again on the 19th.

Stay tuned!
