Day 9 on Aconcagua

I actually slept really well last night as we are finally in temperatures that it was made for (it is rated down to -30F).

The weather has not been the greatest. Cold, windy, and overcast. The clouds really are the biggest downer for me.

Today was much like yesterday: slog from a lower camp to a higher camp, pitch tents, hydrate, eat, rest.

Good news came in the evening with the weather report! It looks like our original summit day, the 14th, has opened up! What a huge relief. Not only does it mean we will have an actual shot at the summit (before it was in doubt), but it also means we won’t have to spend an extra night on the mountain. When Ilan came to our tent with the update I nearly cried. I think it was the altitude. Anyway, I was amped the rest of the night.
