Ascent Trip Report

Hiked to Plaza de Mulas already acclimatized from peaks in nearby areas. From there carried and then moved to Canada. After a rest day carried twice to Nido, moving afterward to Plaza de Mulas due to an incoming windstorm. With 1 meter of snow on ground, bad conditions due to incoming windstorm that might last beyond my 20 day permit and weakness due to altitude I decided to turn back. In future would rather return in January.
