The Seven Summits

Aconcagua Normal Route

We Will Continue To Offer Our Unique And Meticulously Planned Acclimatization Program For Aconcagua, Beginning Our Ascent To High Altitude In The Beautiful Vallecitos Valley, And Offering Our Guests The Opportunity To Experience More Of The Real Argentina!


Aconcagua is the highest mountain in the Western Hemisphere at an impressive 6,963m, and our most popular mountaineering destination. Our normal ascent route is an excellent introduction to altitude expedition climbing with minimal technical challenges. Therefore, if you are just beginning to explore the world of high altitude mountaineering expeditions, look no further than this adventure! Our 25 years of experience on Aconcagua are at your disposal, and base camp at Plaza de Mulas (4,267m) is always a welcome sight for our guides and guests as we begin our journey to the ‘Roof of the Americas’.

As we mentioned earlier, The Aconcagua Northwest Ridge (Normal Route) is our easiest route that follows what may seem like endless scree fields. But don’t be fooled! The behemoth size of the mountain combined with extremely high altitudes and quick changing weather make this a very physical and challenging expedition. While most of our ascent will be following trails on loose talus fields, you can expect to use an ice-axe and crampons on your summit day! But the reward? You’ll be standing on the highest point in the entire Western Hemisphere!


Tailor-made Option

We can organize this expedition on a ‘tailor-made’ private basis for groups of friends, families, clubs, charities or any other group. Depending on your mountaineering experience, you may want a BBE leader or go ‘self-led’ with the assistance of local guides. The cost of going private can be surprisingly reasonable, particularly if you take the self-led option. Please contact us to discuss the itinerary and your preferred dates. We will then send you a quote, with no obligation.
