Introduction

Aconcagua, the highest mountain in America! Nobody gets so high out of Asia. Numerous stories and legends surround this mountain, and make it a mystic destination for mountaineers all around the world. It is among the 7 summits, what makes it a referent for those who intend to complete the ascent to the highest summits in each continent. Our love for Aconcagua and the long years of experience that we have concerning this mountain should guarantee a safe and successful expedition. This program plans to do the ascent by using the legendary “False Polish Route”, and to descent using the “Normal Route”. This variant to cross the mountain does not have great climbing difficulties, and it is considered the most attractive route in many ways. It includes a circuit around the entire massif that allows an incomparable and unique mountain experience. We will enter the wild Vacas Valley to get to the Base Camp on the Eastern side of Aconcagua, Plaza Argentina. We will climb the route to the highest top in the Andes along the Northern flank of the mountain before descending to the Base Camp on the Eastern side, Plaza de Mulas. From here we will go back to the South following the long Horcones Valley, and we will end this beautiful circuit in Puente de Inca. SPONDYLUS invites you to join this impressive expedition to the “Stone Sentinel” off the beaten track.
