Aconcagua Expedition: Team At High Camp

Posted by: | January 19, 2012
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Aconcagua
Elevation: 19,600'

We are at High Camp (Piedras Blancas) and getting ready for our summit bid. We will leave early in the morning for an alpine start and climb out of camp to join the Ruta Normal.  A gradual traverse along the mountain’s northwest flank takes us to the base of the Canaleta, a 1,000’ long couloir leading to the summit ridge. Upon reaching the top of the Canaleta, a straightforward traverse leads to the Aconcagua summit.

Wish us luck!
