From the high camp we traverse scree slopes to the “normal route”, following the well-trodden path through the “Canaleta”, a steep valley between two ridges piled with large rocks. Then we walk across boulders and ledges, occasionally dusted with snow, to reach the highest summit in all of the Americas. Aconcagua is not considered as difficult as Manaslu climb. If you have experience in climbing Lobuche or Island peak then Aconcagua will be easy climb for you.
Our main goal is to reach the top safely together as a team. We don’t anticipate that you should be expert (albeit a few members are) yet, nor are we a climbing school. Therefore, if you need fundamental technical training and experience in snow and ice, we strongly encourage you to attend our Glacier School held in every autumn and spring. Individuals need to be friendly & ready to work together with groups and be a good “team player” to achieve a common goal. Experience is required for members to be part of the team.
An individual must be very fit and active winter walkers to participate in this expedition. Climbers in accurate fitness should be capable of carrying (to the high camp, however not the summit) a rucksack containing your dozing bag, apparel, meals, and for the more potent members, a few group equipment too. Before joining our group, please visit doctor and get the necessary permission, advice and treatment (if necessary) to travel extreme heights and exotic locations. Congratulation as you have climbed the highest peak in South America. You might feel amazing as you just view breathtaking scenery at Aconcagua. Trekking to base camp after that view at Aconcagua national park and walking to the high camp.
