I am back in the town of Mendoza. After fighting off bad weather for 5 days, 4 of which Erik and I were hunkered down at camp Nido de Condores (17,600 ft) in a tent torn apart by snow, wind, and ice, we attempted our summit. On our 6th day we slept at Camp Berlin (19,000 ft). We left camp by 3:35am and ended up turning around at 6:30am just below Camp Independencia at an approximate elevation of 20,700 feet due to high winds, and sever cold. I wanted to keep my toes.
This trip has been an amazing experience, and I will surly write more on this when I get stateside. Ciao!
