We (two of us at present) are planning to go to Aconcagua in February next year.

We are strongly considering the Polish Glacier Traverse Route.

If there are other interested parties then please let me know.

Three or more seems to give you more flexibility on routes, timings etc

thanks

John

It just so happens I currently have the same plan.  I was thinking about joining a lead expedition with one of the local guide companies. What are your plans will you be using a local guides?  What is your itinerary?

I am confident I can do Aconcagua but would like to have as long as possible acclimitizing to boost my chances of success.  Also I have some good experience and I can look after myself but as it will be my first venture at that altitude, (only got to 19400 so far) I feel I will need the guidance of someone more experienced.  If you need any further details, I can e-mail you, if you like.

My name is Trask, and I looked at your email, and I too am headed down that way in Dec-Jan and am looking for some partners.  Let me know if those dates are a possibility for you guys.  I know it is the tail end of rainy season, but hey,  oh well.   Trask

John, Steve,

Saw your posting today and I'm definitely interested. The dates work well for me.
I've replied to your personal email addresses from work.   You can also reach me at bgberlin@hotmail.com.

Completed Kili last Feb. 2004, and just did Rainier two weeks ago.  So far so good with altitude.   I checked out the route your planning on taking and looks like a good choice with a full view of the mountain being the prize.

Let me know about additional details, estimated prices. logicstics. etc. Also some idea of where you're located.

thanks,
Bruce

Just thought I would update my situation.

The trip is booked and will be a fully guided trek ascending via the Vacas Valley (Section Four in Harry's excellent Aconcagua book) and descending via the normal route.

We are now a three person team, me (UK), Neal (UK) and Ann (USA).

The dates are fixed at Feb 5th (arrive Mendoza) thru 23rd (leave Mendoza).

Basic details (like itinerary etc.) can be seen at www.aconcagua2006.co.uk
