Climbing Aconcagua

Aconcagua Normal Route

Soar with the condors to the highest peak in South America

Aconcagua, often referred to as the Stone Sen­tinel,” is the high­est peak in South Amer­i­ca, the high­est peak in the world out­side of Asia, and one of the Sev­en Sum­mits. Climb­ing Aconcagua is a great way to expe­ri­ence the spec­tac­u­lar Andes of Argenti­na. This expe­di­tion is a great step­ping stone for the world’s high­est peaks and a great intro­duc­tion to full blown expe­di­tionary climbing.
