Aconcagua Team Rest Day at C2

Our heroes are taking a day to rest, acclimate, and recover today after carrying loads up to high camp yesterday.  They are hoping to be able to go to the summit on the 9th, so they’ll move up to high camp tomorrow morning and get in position to take a shot at the top.   It sounds like they are all doing well and entertaining themselves.

Here’s Peter with a really entertaining audio post.
