Aconcagua 2002!

Dispatch#15 December 31st, 2001.  Aconcagua Base Camp, Argentina.  Team II Hi this is Ellie Henke calling in from Aconcagua Base Camp where we've heard from Aconcagua Group II, led by Pat Timson and Conan Bliss.  The group spent last night at Camp I, which is at 16,200 feet, that's higher than just about everyone in the group has ever slept before.  Today December 31st, the group did a carry up to Camp II, which is at 17,600 feet.  When you go up to Camp II, you start seeing a whole new view up there, the mountains to the North (Mercedario and EL Mano, which really does look like a hand).  After the group cached their gear up at Camp II, they returned back to Camp I for a huge pasta dinner, Conan reports, and spent the afternoon resting and preparing for actually moving up to Camp II tomorrow.  The whole group wish everybody out there a Happy New Year and we look forward to hearing from them tomorrow as they move up to Camp II.
