Description

This 8-day program will take you to the summit of the amazing Cerro Tolosa, in Mendoza, Argentina, while enjoying a breathtaking view of the Mount Aconcagua.

Tolosa Peak is in the International Route 7 that connects Argentina and Chile, so it is really easy to access the area. We will approach the summit through the beautiful glacier route called “Hombre Cojo Glacier”, which is famous for the magical scenery that surrounds it

This mountain is perfect to improve your high altitude ice climbing techniques in a fantastic scenery. Tolosa peak is neighbor of American´s King “Mount Aconcagua” (6962 m), so from the summit you’ll have an incredible view to the South face of the tallest peak in America.

During all the journey I’ll pay special attention to the group safety and to your acclimatization progress. That’s why there is a rest day in the middle, so you can do the whole trip feeling fine and having fun every step.

So if you are interested in climbing this mythical mountain, just next of Aconcagua, please send me a request and we’ll start planning your next big adventure.

And for another adventure in Argentina, you might also be interested in my mountaineering on the Ansilta range?
