The group has settled into Nido de Condors, and everyone is doing well.  Tomorrow they’re planning to carry some gear to Cholera, and then they’ll return to Nido de Condors to continue the acclimatization process.  Everyone is doing very well despite the unusually cold temperatures, and the group is encouraged by clear skies.  They’re crossing their fingers that the weather holds for a summit push on Wednesday.

The group misses Barry, who had to return to Mendoza, but they’re thinking of him often.  According to Ozzy, he’s confident that everyone else in the group has a great shot at a successful summit attempt!

Stay tuned for more updates on our Aconcagua expedition!
