2018 Aconcagua Upper Guanacos Expedition - Team 1 (Dec 10 - 31, 2018) - Dispatch 9
From AAI lead guide Tad McCrea:
Today (Dec 18th) we sent our basecamp duffels down the hill with the mules, then packed our backpacks for the upper mountain and made it to camp just before the snow and wind came through for the evening. We made pizza and watched "Curb Your Enthusiasm" to aid our acclimatization. Tomorrow (Dec 19th), weather permitting we will carry a load to Camp 2 (18,000ft) and descend back to Camp 1 (16,400ft) to rest before continuing our push up the mountain.
