We love climbing Aconcagua on the Vacas Valley route or what is also called the Polish Glacier Traverse. The traverse treks below the glacier and around Aconcagua. The trek into Aconcagua via this valley is much nicer than the normal route and we are all about having the best experience possible. 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 itinerary. We have learned that more acclimatization and more contingency days gives you the best chance at successfully reaching the summit. Why not get in touch and learn more about the Vacas valley route and how to be successful climbing Aconcagua. If you have some altitude experience like Kilimanjaro, Island peak or Mera Peak and used to carrying weight then this could be the trip for you. We have a well established team on the mountain and we always send a western guide. Give yourself the best chance of enjoy the overall experience on one of the 7 summits.
