Mount Aconcagua, with Its Height of 6962 Meters, It is the Highest Mountain of Americas, the Highest Mountain Outside of Asia, and the Highest Peak of Both the Southern and Western Hemispheres. Despite the Relatively Low Technical Difficulty of the Normal Ascent Route, the Remoteness of this Mountain, as Well as Its Exposure to Sudden Climate Changes and Notorious High Winds Called “viento Blanco”, Make It a Challenging Objective, Attracting Numerous People to Attempt Its Summit Every Year. Aconcagua is a High Mountain that Culminates in Two Peaks, the North (the Highest) and the South, and Where We have to Deal with High Altitude and Unstable Weather. The Normal Route is More Straightforward Than the Alternative Polish Traverse Expedition that We also Offer (which Shows a Wilder Side of the Mountain and Where the Spirit of Adventure is Present At Every Step, Crossing the Base of the Legendary Polish Glacier to Join the Normal Route Higher Up), But Nonetheless Presents Significant Challenges. the Key to Reaching the Summit of Aconcagua is a Good Acclimatization, and We Plan Carefully, Allowing Contingency if Required, to Give You the Best Possible Base from Which to Succeed. It is Important to Be in Good Physical Shape, But Even Then It Can Be Difficult to Predict How Altitude Can Affect Different People So We Carefully Monitor How Our Clients’ Acclimatization is Progressing in Order to Refine Our Schedule as We Go if Necessary. Also Important is to Allow Enough Time to Optimize the Chances of Hitting Good Weather Windows, and Being Agile Enough to Respond Quickly When Opportunities Open. Andes Vertical Offers a Real and Classic Mountain Expedition with Small or Personalized Groups Which Allow Us to Provide that Agility and a More Tailored Service Than You May Experience in Larger Groups. We Guarantee Quality Services and a High Possibility of Submitting with Our Carefully Selected Guides and More Than Hundred Successful Expeditions to Date. The Trek Into Base Camp Will Take You Through Wild Desert Terrain, with a Side-hike to See the Spectacular South Face of Aconcagua, and When You Reach Base Camp You Will have a Beautiful View of the Mountain Itself. As You Scale Its Slopes, Higher and Higher, Breathtaking Views Will Unfold On all Sides as You Gaze Along the Magnificent Chain of the Andes from Its Very Summit. If You are Lucky, You May Even See the Condor, Lord of the Andean Skies, Circling Nearby One of the Higher Camps (known as Nido De Condores, or Condors’ Nest). For An Experience You Will Never Forget, Come and Join Us!!
