The Vacas Valley Traverse Route
We love Aconcagua expeditions on the Vacas Valley route or Polish traverse route on Aconcagua. The trek into Plaza Argentina Base Camp has less people and is a more interesting way to climb Aconcagua. The views in the Vacas valley and above Base Camp are far more interesting than the normal route up Aconcagua.
Climb Aconcagua with Experts
We are available 5 days a week in support of your Aconcagua Expedition. We want to help you understand how the expedition plays out and how you can prepare. Our goal is help you have the best experience possible on Aconcagua. We have showers, chef, Wi-Fi and comfortable Base Camp. Aconcagua is technically straight forward but the altitude, weather and cold temperatures can cause a wide range of challenges.
Aconcagua Requires More Acclimatization
The first time I climbed Aconcagua was on a 14 day itinerary, this was a big mistake on a poorly managed trip. Over the years we learned that more acclimatization and more contingency days offers you the best chance at successfully reaching the summit.
Once we reach Base Camp we have four nights for further acclimatization. Once we move higher on the mountain we will have 6 days of carrying expedition equipment and our personal gear higher on the mountain. We will have a rest day in Camp 2 5,500m/ 18,044 feet before moving to Camp 3 and our summit attempt. Check out our itinerary.
Previous Altitude Experience
When thinking of climbing Aconcagua, It is important to have some previous high altitude experience. Having climbed peaks like Kilimanjaro, Island peak, Mera Peak or Cotopaxi and used to carrying a weighted backpack, then Aconcagua could be the trip for you.
We have a well established team on the mountain with highly experienced guides. Give yourself more comfort and a more enjoyable overall experience on one of the 7 summits.
