Aconcagua False Polish - team in base camp!

FTA Feb Falso group setting out from the hotel
FTA Feb 2 Acon Falso update - in BC!

Ben has dropped us a note that the team is now in Argentina base camp and have been enjoying a rest day. They hope to make a carry up to camp 1 tomorrow and if everyone is feeling well they will hope to move up to camp 1 on the 10th.

A few members are feeling the effects of the altitude after the move from Casa de Piedras up to Plaza Argentina so they will be sure to take the days they need in base camp to have everyone feeling well.

It looks like there will be some precipitation but low winds for the next 3-4 days so they should have good weather for establishing high camps. We are keeping our eyes on some high winds predicted for the 15th to 17th or so and hoping this does not materialize.

more news shortly!
