Hello, friends and family, this is Matthew calling in for The Seven Guanacos on Aconcagua. Today is December 26th.
Today the Team woke up to some light winds, maybe 10 gusting to 15. Finally getting a little bit of what Aconcagua’s known for. We’ve got nice sunny skies though. We carried some gear up to Camp 3, the base of the Polish Glacier (at 19,200 feet). It was a beautiful day; it ended up being quite calm at times and a little windy at times but nothing too crazy.
Everybody’s doing really well, feeling good, and excited to be getting towards the upper mountain. We’re looking forward to moving up to our Camp 3 tomorrow and taking our last rest day before moving to High Camp and going for the summit.
We’ve got mac and cheese going tonight. We had a nice oatmeal breakfast this morning. And once again everybody’s doing great. We’ll be in touch.
