Join North Shore Adventures Inc. as we head to the "Stone Sentinel". Our Journey will take us through the wonderful city of Mendoza where participants can enjoy great food and world class wine. Our climb begins with a scenic 3 day hike through the Vacas valley to our base camp at 14,000 ft. We shall progress up the mountain slowly with gear shuttles to allow for the maximum amount of acclimitization.
Daily activities while on Aconcaqua will include gradual moves up from base camp. We will have 2 high camps. Camp 1 at 16,000 ft and camp 2 at 19,200 ft. Time will be spent each day shuttling equipment or move to higher camps. Several rest days are included to maintain energy and to assist the acclimating process.
This expedition is ideal for adults 18 years and older. Our route is technically simple, however climbing at high altitudes offers a great deal of physical challenge. Individuals should be in peak physical condition.
