Overview

This guid­ed climb­ing expe­di­tion to Aconcagua offers a great way to expe­ri­ence the spec­tac­u­lar Andes of Argenti­na and reach one of the Sev­en Sum­mits. This expe­di­tion is a great step­ping stone for the world’s high­est peaks, like Mount Ever­est, and a great intro­duc­tion to full blown expe­di­tionary climb­ing.  

You will climb via the Nor­mal Route along the North­west Ridge, which is a non-tech­ni­cal, yet phys­i­cal­ly demand­ing climb that incor­po­rates all the logis­tics of climb­ing a big moun­tain. All of the equip­ment is car­ried to base camp by mules. You guides will fol­low the phi­los­o­phy of climb high and sleep low as they estab­lish a series of high­er camps while ascend­ing Aconcagua.  

This route begins at Plaza de Mulas, a vibrant base camp at the head of the Hor­cones Val­ley and uti­lizes three high­er camps to gain the sum­mit. You climb expe­di­tion style by accli­ma­tiz­ing while stock­ing camps before the final sum­mit attempts.  

The guides have also built in numer­ous inclement weath­er days to the sched­ule to allow more time to attempt the sum­mit climb. These fac­tors enable prop­er acclima­ti­za­tion and great­ly increase our chances for success.  

There is an option for porter sup­port to all camps. This enables you to car­ry only the items need­ed dur­ing the day and will increase your chances of success.
