2012/2013 Plans

It started with an innocent offer: "If you're interested, I'm leading an Aconcagua trip next January."

Two months later my schedule had changed. Injury rehabilitation dominated the last quarter of 2011 and torpedoed my January/February 2012 plans. Independently my 2013 plans were slowly falling part. Then, just before Christmas, a last chance reminder email - "So, Aconcagua? You in?"

And like that a five month acclimatization plan fall into place:

  1. August/September - South Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado - An epic 9 day trip visiting/climbing Yellowstone, Pike's Peak, etc. (Final peaks still TBD - at least one 14,000' will be attempted). 
  2. November - Mexico - 7 days climbing Orizaba (18,880') and Ixtaccihuatl (17,338'). 
  3. January 2013 - Aconcagua ( 22,841') - A 24 day expedition style ascent. 

 As is par with my planning, these plans to may change. For now, however, I am officially training towards these goals.
