2014 Aconcagua Expedition Dispatch 5 (New Years Day) Falso Polaco / Upper Guanacos Traverse

12:43AM at 01/01/2015

We received a voicemail from Aidan yesterday morning around 5AM their time.

"Wishing everyone a Happy New Year from the Andes.

Group is en route to base camp. They had a relatively uneventful New Years Eve. There were a few parties going on around camp but they all agreed that discretion is the better part of valor.

It has been very windy but the skies have been clear. Wind is supposed to die own over the next few days.

After sleeping in and finishing breakfast they were packing up and preparing for the move up to BC. 6 to 7 hours of trekking and 3,000ft of elevation gain.

Group is doing great and enjoying the sunshine and beautiful views."
