We have reached Nido de Condores after a 7 hour slog uphill. It is just a little windy here--we can barely stand upright outside but we are now safely tucked into our tents for the night. We've had lots of snow and the trail was icy on our way up.The current forecast is for lighter winds on Thursday and so the plan remains firm for a summit attempt then. We're doing great and will continue to keep you posted.
Special shout-out to Regena: "Jimmy had the heart of an ox today!"
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.”
- Mark Twain
