  1. Basically a steep trek – no real climbing. If someone wants this sort of experience then a better choice would be Pumori in the Himalaya. It's very close to Everest and it's just over 7000m, so only a little higher than Aconcagua. It costs about the same, and the views of the trio of Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse are awesome (not to mention the rest of the giant mountais in that area). AND — though it's definitely not a technical climb, in some sections you'll actually NEED crampons and ropes. If that sounds like it's something for you then punch in PUMORI CLIMB on Google for all the info and climbing videeos. Hope this is of interest to somebody. P.S. I was there in 2003 for my 50th birthday – that's 15 yeears ago now but I can still see the fantastic scenery in my mind. Like no other mountains ANYWHERE.

  2. Don't be fooled by "basically it's a steep trek". This is true but Aconcagua is a serious mountain. If you look after yourself, take it seriously, acclimatise and eat and drink well, you'll give yourself a good chance. But don't be surprised if some of your companions don't make it. It's a tough journey and altitude sickness is a real risk. Yes I have done it. Those solar-powered showers weren't there when we went 16 years ago!

  3. Very little snow in this vid. We had far more, not as many folks about then, did summit day from lower down, not much rest on top. This looks well organised, well supplied, good acclimatisation and the medical checks look reassuring too. It's a big deal, not at all easy, and those who make it can feel a real sense of achievement. Great video, well done.

  4. This is the second video I have seen of Inka on Aconcagua and they seem like they run a highly skilled and professional business. I am hoping to climb sometime in 2020, and I'd like to climb with a local guide company to support local economy, my only concern is international logistics considering I'm coming from the states. How were they at communicating during the planning process? Would you recommend them?

  5. Please someone call me ignorant if I am with what I’m about to say but this doesn’t look all that tough or am I missing something? Seems like if you are in good cardiovascular shape and plan out the acclimation properly, should be doable for a beginner. Again if I’m missing something please tell me. Also this is an awesome video, don’t take what I’m saying as a shot at them.

  6. Jakich butów używaliście i czy marzły wam w nich stopy w wyższych partiach? Czy jakieś elementy wyposażenia sie nie sprawdziły?

  7. How much did that all cost?
    All in All Great Vid, most comprehensive i've seen and you seem like a really nice guy

  8. There's much less ice and snow than I thought there would be. It's quite warm there. That's an impressive hike. It's the highest point on Earth outside of Asia, and you can see! With that view from the summit, it's obvious you're very high above everything else around. But they gave you a can of Coca-Cola when you returned to base camp! It should be beer!

  9. Krasse Sache. Ich hab gehört, man kann den aconcagua ( wenn man erfahren ist) auch auf eigene faust besteigen. Stimmt das?
