This is Max Kausch writing a dispatch for the SummitClimb Aconcagua December
expedition 2013. Today is Thursday December 26th.
We made it to 5600m yesterday and have most of the loads already at high
camps. Our camp 1 has about 100kg of food, equipment and fuel for our summit
push. WeŽll stock our camp 2 tomorrow with 150kg which will allow us to stay
there for 3 nights.
We had an amazing Christmas eve at basecamp (BC). Our logistics company made
us a BBQ with steak, pork and chicken. Quite an amazing meal considering we
are at 4300m in the middle of nowhere. The steak and firewood made it to BC on
the back of a mule. That took 2 days!
WeŽll start the summit push tomorrow and our plan is to summit on the 31st
December or 1st of January.
Everyone is acclimatizing extremely well. They made it to camp 1 a full 2
hours faster than normal!
Thanks for following our team.
