Climbing in the Andes Mountains
One of the world's great mountain ranges, the Andes form the spine of the south American continent running 7000 kilometres with peaks in Ecuador, Chile, Colombia, Peru, Argentina, Bolivia & Venezuela. The highest peak of all the climbs in the Andes and the highest in South America,and indeed the highest mountain in the world outside the Himalayas is Mount Aconcagua in Argentina. We offer guided climbs on both major routes of this peak, and the main season is from December to the end of February. We run one trip per year normally, taking it in turns to tackle either the Horcones or the Vacas Valley side. Group sizes are normally about ten, and our trips use base camp services and mules as far as base camp, after which the teams are self-sufficient.
