Aconcagua Team Ready to Move Up

MM Guide Joshua Jar­rin report­ed in that the Aconcagua Nor­mal Route team is doing just fine, despite some winds and snow. They will be mov­ing up on the moun­tain after com­plet­ing some carries.

The team.

Joshua reports Sun­day the 19th: The last two days the weath­er has been stormy here. We got 3 inch­es of snow in Base Camp, how­ev­er yes­ter­day we did our acclima­ti­za­tion hike to Cana­da camp and are keep­ing on sched­ule the best we can.

Cana­da carry.

Today, Sun­day, the sit­u­a­tion has­n’t improved, the teams that tried the sum­mit report­ed 2 feet of snow on the windy cor­ner and all of them turned around. But, we will wait and con­di­tions should improve as we move up the mountain.

Our deci­sion is to use our extra day and wait in Base Camp on Sun­day. On the 20th we are going to try to move up to Camp 1. Every­body is in a good shape for the move. Despite the bad weath­er we had a great expe­ri­ence here in Base Camp. Some of the out­fit­ters got togeth­er and orga­nized a movie pro­jec­tion, which was per­fect for our rest day!

Below Rory is enjoy­ing the con­cert that opened the movie.” Stay tuned for more as they make their way up!
