Greetings from Mendoza! Everything is getting ready here for our first Polish Glacier trip of the Aconcagua season. There is a very strong team of guides in this expedition: Jacob Schmidt (picture) is the leading guide, with many Aconcagua summits in his pack, and some 8000m Himalayan peaks too. Augusto Ortega, from Perú, is the man with more concagua summits in History: 53 times he`s been to the top! He also climbed Everest. Alaskan guide Larry Holmgreen and local credit Fermín Avila -a seasoned Aconcagua porter before becoming a certified guide- complete the team. They are finishing the details and meeting the 12 climbers that will attempt this technical route. The whole group is getting toether tomorrow for a meeting, then for a good solid Argentinean dinner in a well known Mendoza restaurant. I will be sending updates of their progress in the mountain to our website.
