That said I would take a pair of lwt gtx bibs for the summit day on Aconcagua if you use a typical soft shell.
I am currently using a pairr of NWAlpinist bibs made of the Neoshell soft shell which would be good there (summit day almost anywhere at 6Km) as well I think. Very impressed with the fabric, water proof, breathable, stretchy and very tough.

i've heard really good things about the nw alpine pants, but they appear to be a bit too fitted for my taste.
