ACONCAGUA – Day 6 December 27, 2006

Posted by Jason in Aconcagua, Argentina.

Second Rest Day at Base Camp 

I had trouble sleeping last night, only 4 to 5 hours sleep but feel alot better than yesterday.  Cheryl is tired from yesterdays exhertions.

Its calm and sunny and we wish Geoffs team well as they prepare to leave for Camp 1 a day earlier than us.

We spend the day chilling out and doing as little as possible.  Our main problem is finding somewhere to shelter from the sun as the tent is too hot.

Chezza does a little washing in the river and later we have mate with Charlie, Sujay and Willie Prittie´s wife.

I finally feel like we are acclimatising to this height.  Unfortunately tommorrow we have to start acclimatising all over again.  This time to 4,900m.

Tonight, Charlie cooked us a steak and lentil stew, which I think is a cruel joke considering the state of my flatulence!  See HAFE!!
