Aconcagua, North Face
|[ Sizes: Orig | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
The summit of Aconcagua from Camp Nido des Condores. The trail leading up to Camp Berlin is off the left frame of the photo. The Gran Acarreo can be seen here traversing the slope from left to right below the summit. The Canaleta is the scree slope leading up to the summit on the right side. The vertical trail that drops down from the Gran Acarreo should be avoided altogether unless you are descending all the way to Plaza del Mulas from the summit. Photo taken December 12, 2005.
