World Summit Series

Aconcagua (6,961M/22,837’), Normal Route 

 

This is an ascent of the highest mountain in the Western & Southern hemispheres.   It will be a self-guided expedition climb in stages, for acclimatization, with a base camp, two intermediate camps, and a high camp.  While not a technical route, it is challenging and will require all that you have to attempt a successful summit bid.  While in Argentina, we will also enjoy Mendoza, world renown for its friendly people, great food and some of the best Malbec wines in the world.
