RatballsTupungato North Ridge from Argentina  Sucess!

Ratballs

Climbed Tupungato in January 2005 as part of a group of eight from Colorado State University and Fort Collins, CO. We made a multi-day approach from Argentina, setting six personal elevation records when we crossed a 15,000-foot pass on our first day. The whole thing took 16 days, and it remains to this date the greatest adventure I've been on. Great folks. Great mountain. Loved Argentina--yoiks, they know how to live there.

4 times to the mountain, 3 summits...
As a long-time Aconcagua guide, I think that the normal routes on Tupungato are the perfect alternative to climbs on Aconcagua. Fewer people, cleaner camps, more wild-life.

I climbed Tupungato from Chile (normal south west route) mid january 1994 with a french commercial expedition.



Good conditions, but we had some trouble coming back to the last camp on our summit day due to a persistent fog on the immense plateau between Tupungato and Tupungatito. (today, with a GPS, such a problem would not have occured). Fog is quite frequent in the afternoon and disappear gradually in the night (mostly coming from Argentina on this huge plateau).



We were alone on this peak.



Higly recommended for anyone fond of andean wilderness!



Note there are several secondary summits on the summit area (get straight away when climbing the gully on the west side) in the summit area.
