Anyone going to Aconcagua Jan/Feb 2012 for Polish Direct?

Postby nmontelli » Tue Jun 14, 2011 4:02 pm

Im heading there in January or February, originally planned to do the Polish Direct, but my partner can no longer go. If I end up going alone, I will either try to solo the route, or do the traverse depending on how I feel. But would be much more confident in doing the route with a partner. If anyone's plans are similar let me know and maybe we can work something out.

I was starting to look into it. Just having a hard time trying to find the funds to do the trip. I for sure want to go that time of year if I can.

I might be interested. I would like to do the Normal Route but could be persuaded to go the Polish Direct. I would prefer late December-early January but am open on that was well. Let me know your plans. If going unguided there's a lot of logistics involved as I was going to try it 2 years ago and things fell through. Feel free to PM me.

I'll jump in this conversation; depending on the intent to use a guide or not. (not me hopes)
