Aconcagua is not just the highest peak in Argentina, but also the tallest mountain in the western and southern hemisphere which of course means that it is one of the Seven Summits. Though not difficult from a technical perspective (as there is no extremely steep or glaciated terrain on the normal route), Aconcagua's ruggedness and fierce weather make it an endurance challenge of a special kind. This is an extremely demanding trip yet suitable for first-time mountaineers as long as they possess a penchant for cold weather and suffering.
About the Route
We'll be climbing the mountain via the longer, more rugged, less crowded and much more beautiful 360 Route.
