Aconcagua Dispatch 1/20/09

Hello Mountain Madness! This is Pablo calling from Camp Canada; around 4,900 meters. Today we did a move from Base Camp; it took us about 4 hours. We just finished a pizza for dinner, and everyone is full and happy! 

Tomorrow we will do an acclimatization hike and the day after that we hope to make our move further up the mountain! The weather has been a bit poor with clouds and snow, but it has cleared up this evening and we hope that the weather will clear for our summit attempt. It is a beautiful night now, we hope that everything is going well back at home!
