Aconcagua, 22840 inches

Aconcagua, 22840 inches

Our contacts in Argentina report that the country will soon reopen for tourism. However, it seems that Aconcagua National Park will impose new restrictions on the upcoming climbing season. For 2022, the only route available to climbers is the “normal” route through the Hurkons Valley through the Plaza de Molas main camp. While we have descended through the Horcones Valley many times over the years, we usually ascend through the Relinchos Valley. So, for 2022, we are changing Our IMG Aconcagua app This is not our first choice to climb the normal route, but we do our best to make it a fun and successful trip!

Our goal for 2022 is to take a normal road trip that meets the high standards that IMG is known for, and we believe we have a plan to do that! In addition to enough time to adapt (do not rush), we have also decided to use local porters to carry equipment up and down the mountain and give our group lighter backpacks. Then, as we climb to the summit and return to the main Plaza de Molas camp, we return the helicopters to the entrance to Horkons Park and return to Mendoza, which saves several days of walking.

This will be a great trip that will allow us to save our energy and collect beautiful scenery not only during the climb but also at the end of the trip through the air!
