Interesting climb to say the least, though lots of fun. Not overly sure I would do it again, but some of the sister peaks looked great!

Date Climbed: Feb 14, 2011


False Polish to Colera. A lot of death the day prior to our summit. Poor decisions + Altitude = "Not Good" The previous days disasters unfortunatley dampened my joy of the summit. Not likely a mountain I would repeat however. Well, maybe just for the excuse to visit Mendoza!

markhallamPolaco-Guanaco-Normal route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 17, 2011


Had intended on going via Polish Traverse, but conditions suggested traversing from Polish camp 1 to ´Guanacos 3´, then up to Colera at 5970m, more likely to be successful. So I modified my plans and went that route. I was holed up for 3 days at Polish camp 1 in terrible storm which sadly claimed the lives of 3 climbers higher up the mountain. However, things then improved and I was fortunate to summit on an unusually calm day on 17th Feb.

Date Climbed: Jan 9, 2010


After 12 days during which I visited Confluencia, Plaza Francia, Plaza de Mulas, Cerro Bonete, I climbed Cerro Aconcagua overnighting 2 times at Nido de Condores and 2 times at plaza Colera. Wonderful day after a windy night (70 - 80 km/h) with -20°C and wind at 40 km/h along the big traverse. Magnific view of the south wall and of all the mountains around; it was possible to see also the Earth curvature from the top!

Gorgeous day with no winds and warm temps. Unbelievable experience with our group, 10 folks on top and lots more sharing the mountain with us that day. Hope to get back next year!

We spent 10 days on the mountain. Our unguided party of three bypassed all camps except Mulas and Nido. Very cold and windy.

Polish Route. Spent 3 nights at 20,400'? on the side of the Polish glacier. 1st day= 5 summit. 2nd day= 5 turn back-snowing hard. 3rd day= myself and 2 guides break 2' fresh powder. Half way to summit on steep slope we hear the "Womph" and I feel the snow settle. Lucky=no avalanche=we should NOT have been there. Now I know to dig a pit to test the snow. 31 days on the mountain and only saw 2 other people besides our group of 13! Phil Powers goes on to summit K2 w/o O2 and Steve Goyal summits Everest with Scott Fischer and I finish the 50 state HP's!

I climbed Aconcagua with a commercial Tour, but was lucky to do it with patrick Berhault, so it was an incredible beautiful time I had during this trip. We did it via the "falso polaco" route encountering some pb at high camp where we had to wait 3 days long, but finally made it. Not a difficult climb for sure compared to many others, even other Argentinian 6000m peaks. Alas the mountain become more and more overcrowded, but it remains the highest of the andes. Still, it's a dangerous mountain because.... normally, it's an easy one!be careful!

Date Climbed: Feb 12, 2010


Reached the summit via the normal route with 5 of our group of 7. The first half of the climb was in ok conditions, but during the traverse and in the Canaleta the weahter worsened. We reached a very windy but cloud-covered summit around 16.00h.
10 hours up, 4 down. Great trip!

My partner and I hooked up with someone at the last minute. Was the hardest day of my life. 12 hours to the summit topping out at 4pm, but perfect conditions. Never felt altitude like that before, was in a dream like state on the summit. Took the False Polish back to Camp 2.
