Aconcagua Day 10: Rest Day at Camp 3

Finally some rest. Today was a rest day and thankfully so because I didn’t get much sleep last night. The wind was gusting at 70-75 mph rattling and almost leveling the tent off the ground, not to mention the temperature inside my tent reached a cool -10 degrees Celsius (14 degrees Fahrenheit).

I took my time and got out of the tent around 10 am where we cooked a breakfast of eggs and pancakes with Nutella on top. We hung out and rested until dinner time where we ate mashed potatoes with beef and ostrich sausage.

We’ll get to bed early tonight as we plan on moving up to High Camp 4 tomorrow to put us in reach of a summit attempt as soon as there‚Äôs a break in the weather.
