||Cerro de Aconcagua 22,841’
It’s finally here; the first trip since early 2004 to the highest mountain in South America. Aconcagua, in good conditions,is the highest mountain in the world where one can gain the summit without setting foot on a glacier. However, the altitude and wind can quickly become factors affecting a climb. We’ll be there just before the start of the climbing high season.
