[Blog followers this is moderator Carl...just spoke with Kurt and he's feeling tired but I sensed a confidence that he'll make a strong effort for the summit tomorrow. Below is the transribed version of the link that you can also listen to directly from Kurt. I forgot the access site to this but luckily Kurt's sharp enough to remind me. I'll be posting one other phone message he left lower on the climb. I think I'll move this back so it's in the correct order within the climb. Sorry no pictures until tomorrow. After the summit attempt (which they take only minimal gear, leaving the rest at high camp) they head back down Camp 4.]
High Camp / Camp 4 / High Camp! Team rolled into Camp 4 a few hours ago. We've already had our dinner and tents are established. A couple of us were very thankful to have paid for the porter service to carry the bulk of our gear from 3 to 4, because we were making the push in one big push rather than the double carries that we're accustomed to. Today, I'm just gonna leave an audio blog because it's very cold and windy up here at Camp 4, and I'm a little bit tired. So, tomorrow's the big day, summit day... we'll see how everyone's feeling in the morning. We just had our quote, un-quote pep talk from one of the guides, which is really about safety and concerns for reaching the summit, so we're all feeling pretty good. The team is very strong. I was a bit slower than everyone once again today but but I'm feeling pretty good and definitely looking forward to tomorrow. I want to thank all of you for reading along and following my adventure here on Aconcagua. I'll talk to you tomorrow and hopefully get some great pictures we're able to post up on the blog. From High Camp on Aconcagua which is higher than the summit of Denali, this is Kurt Hunter and I will talk to you soon.
