Description

Today I am inviting you to an amazing ascent to Cerro Adolfo Calle at 4.270 meters of height. On the way we will visit The Silver Cordon, Vallecitos and of course, the capital of Mendoza.

For more information about this climb to Cerro Adolfo Calle, read the following itinerary:

DAY 1: MENDOZA – LAS VEGUITAS CAMP

We will meet in the city of Mendoza. Check our personal and group equipment or if necessary, equipment rental. After that, we will be transferred to Vallecitos up to the huts zone at 2.9000 meters. We have the option of sleeping in a mountain hut or setting our camp in Las Veguitas at 3.200m, with the help of porters.

DAY 2: CERRO ADOLFO CALLE SUMMIT – LAS VEGUITAS CAMP

At dawn we start our ascent to Cerro Adolfo Calle. The positive vertical drop will reach up to 1.000 meters above sea level. We will take with us the food gear, necessary water and lunch. Once we get to the summit we descend to Las Veguitas Camp again, where we spend the night.
