Aconcagua 2002

Published by Stephen Platt
Aconcagua at nearly 7,000 metres is the highest mountain in the Americas. From the south it is a hard, dangerous climb. From the north, given good weather, it is relatively easy.
In my twenties, living in Venezuela, I read a book about three Polish climbers who in 1934 made their own equipment and climbed it by a new elegant route up the east ridge.
It captured my imagination and I had always wanted to climb it. Over thirty years later I asked a friend to come with me before it was too late.
