Culminating at 6963 meters, Aconcagua, in the Central Andes, is the highest peak in the Western Hemisphere. It is without a doubt a very popular destination for mountaineers. I invite you on this Aconcagua ascent adventure in 22 days.
I planned an ascent through the Normal Route. It is ideal if you are looking for a major adventure but you don’t necessarily have much experience in high-altitude mountaineering. In general it includes trekking on trails, but we will use crampons and an ice axe on summit day.
We will ascend through the Normal Route, along the Northwest ridge. This climb is not technical, but it is physically demanding and you need to have basic mountaineering skills. The main challenges are the high altitude as well as the weather conditions. But the reward is priceless! Join me and let’s reach the highest point in the West Hemisphere.
For the detailed program, check the daily itinerary below. There, you will find information about how much we ascend each day and how I will make sure you get proper acclimatization. Besides, you will of course get to see what our objective is for each day!
Bear in mind that proper acclimatization is a key factor for an ascent as intense as this. Being in an excellent physical shape will increase your acclimatization ability. In addition, I designed a program to allow you to acclimatize progressively. You also need to be careful with nutrition, hydration and warmth during the expedition.
Dare to embark on this exciting Aconcagua ascent? Then wait no further, book this trip and we will start planning!
