WOW! Our 320th expedition on its way!! In 33 years of operation since 1984

A.P. 1 Nov. 29 – Dec. 18

We are looking forward to another great season ahead with a great Team of Climbers and Guides!

Our first group departed today from Mendoza and is led by Experienced Argentinian Mountain Guides, Rolo Abaca, Sebastián Satke and Matías Nestares. Rolo, our lead guide, is a seasonal veteran with decades of experience on Aconcagua.

The group is on their way to Penitentes, a small ski resort at about 8,500 feet, close to the Chilean Border in the heart of the Andes.

Tomorrow morning they will start the 3-day approach to Base Camp, hiking up the Vacas and Ameghino Valleys. After three days of spectacular, colorful, high desert scenery, they will reach our Base Camp, at 13,800’. The hike to Base Camp is approximately 40 kilometers and will give the perfect chance to begin their acclimatization process.

We will be updating you with the progress of the group as we get satellite phone calls from the guides.
