OVERVIEW

Mount Aconcagua

  • Region - Argentina

  • Duration - 17 Days

  • Max Altitude - 6,961m/22,841 ft

  • Grade - Challenging

  • Best Season - Nov - Feb

The Seven Summits are the highest mountains on each of the seven continents of the Earth – Mount Everest, Aconcagua, Denali, Kilimanjaro, Elbrus, Vinson, Carstensz Pyramid. Climbing to the summit of all of them is regarded as a mountaineering challenge, first achieved on 30 April 1985 by Richard Bass.

 

Mount Aconcagua Climb – While probably the most technically straight-forward of the Seven Summits, Aconcagua is a challenge to the strongest mountaineers' fitness and stamina. Mt. Aconcagua summit is the highest mountain in both the Western and Southern Hemispheres, 6,961 m / 22,841 ft, the tallest peak on Earth outside of the Himalayas, and the second of the Seven Summits, after Mt Everest.

 

The Normal route starts with an acclimatization trekking to Plaza Francia Viewpoint, and then we made the approach to Plaza de Mulas, a 40 km trek. It takes us three days to get to Plaza de Mulas. This guarantees very good acclimatization before start the climbing of Aconcagua. Our suggested program includes two days of double equipment porting and security. When the last stage begins, we go higher and higher until we reach the summit. In the Aconcagua, sometimes the presence of a white wind makes the ascent difficult, this is what we use the security days for thus increasing the chances of reaching the summit.
