Description

The mightiest mountain in the Americas, the highest mountain outside of Asia, Aconcagua (6,962m) is a true wonder.

For 20 wonderful days, I would like to guide you to the top of Aconcagua by way of the peak’s northeast side, and lead you back down. Every day of this unforgettable trek will bring you new and stupendous views of not just the peak’s surroundings, but of the Andes as well.

The trip will begin in the lovely Argentinean city of Mendoza. From there we will enter the Aconcagua national park. After that, we will progress our way to the summit.

Since this trip lasts nearly 3 weeks, there will be no need to rush during this adventure. Instead, we will be taking our time, making steady progress day after day. There will also be several rest days as well. Hence giving you a lot of time to not just admire the glorious views you get throughout Aconcagua, but to also properly acclimatize. This is very important, as it will ensure you don’t have to endure any altitude sickness.

You will get to visit many popular spots on Aconcagua during this ascent. Those spots include the following.

  • Confluencia camp (3,368m)

  • Plaze de Mulas base camp (4,300m)

  • Cerro Bonete (5,100m)

  • Canada Camp (4,910m) 

  • Nido de Condores (5,380m)

  • Colera Camp (5,870m)

And every night, you will get to rest after a long day’s climbing and practising at a comfortable campsite.

Climbing a mighty mountain like Aconcagua is an experience you will never forget. The views you will get throughout the ascent, and especially at the mountain’s apex, will stay with you for the rest of your life. All you have to do to experience this incredible climb for yourself is send me a request.

About the guide

I´m based in Bariloche, Patagonia, where I guide full time, mostly technical custom trips with small groups.

I started guiding in 1998, and my job took me all around the globe. In Montana, USA, where I lived for many years I worked extensively in the Rockies, guiding in the Tetons, Wind Rivers, and the Beartooths. Back to Argentina, I spend most of my time ski guiding volcanoes, rock climbing at Frey and mountaineering in Chalten and Tronador.

The rest of time I work as a Technical director at the AAGM, forming new guides, and trying to be an exciting dad for my two kids, taking advantage of the great backyard we have at home!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
