Day 8 on Aconcagua

Not much to say today. We moved up to the first high camp, Canada, at 5030m. Even with a heavier pack, the climb wasn’t that difficult.

Upon arriving we immediately pitched the tents and hydrated. Our guide, Ilan, made us hamburgers as a treat for dinner. They really hit the spot. Camp Canada is pretty exposed so we stayed in our tents the majority of the time. It is like having a 7:30 bed time. I’m getting lots of reading done.

Tomorrow we move up to Camp 2, Nido de Condores which is at 5600m.
