Hi there (first post
I'm currently planning my trip to south america and I encountered this 'easy to climb' mountain called Aconcagua (have you heard about it?
As i have 0 mountain climbing experience, i would like to know what is your opinion about me trying to take on such a mountain.
some general details about me:
21 years old, soon to be an IDF reservist, well practiced in the art of 'Bergen Carrying' (weights up to 70% body weight, sometimes more).
I didn't buy the equipment yet so if you have any recommendations as for softshells, hiking boots (leather vs seude), plastic boots, backpack (60 liters? 70? 80?) i would love to hear whats on your mind.
so ill just put it in general again:
Is it probable that i would get to the top? With/without a guide
What gear do you recommend?? (brand names or specific items)
