Hi, This is Max Kausch writing a dispatch for the SummitClimb Aconcagua
January expedition 2013. Today is Sunday January 19th 2014.
We had to delay our summit push due to a 3 day storm that would complicate
things up high. We decided to hold up at BC where we have good food and good
We are leaving BC today and want to sleep at C1 tonight. Then we plan to spend
the nights of the 20th and 21st at camp 2 which is 5600m high. Our summit
attempt will hopefully be around Jan 23rd in order to be in Mendoza in the
night of the 25th and catch the flights on the 26th, what a mission!
Last night was interesting. The 8th Reel Rock Movie festival was showed right
here at Plaza de Mulas! The event organizers brought a 25 foot inflatable
screen with a projector and showed 4 amazing HD movies at 9pm right next to
our camp! Quite an amazing experience considering how high we are! It was
freezing cold last night but even then about 150 people sat at the front of
the screen to watch the movies! What an experience!
Ok, we´re setting the loads and getting ready
to go up, wish us luck!
