The normal route:

Aconcagua(6963m)top of America, one of my favourite places on this Earth. What makes it so special are its rocks and sights, but mainly the people who live there. We did the normal route, from Horcones Valley.
The camps:
Plaza de Mulas(4200m)
Campo Canada(5050m)
Nido de Condores(5500m)
Campo Colera(5970m)

Great photo's

Thanks for sharing your great photo's. Makes me long to be there... and in February I will be, on the Vacas side - probably Polish Traverse, in the likely event the glacier won't be in condition. Looking at your images - how you have adapted for all the varied conditions, lighting etc - makes me realise I need to study my camera (Nikon D140) a little more before I go, if I am to make the most of opportunities.

Hi Aniko, so you are climbing Aconcagua again? It must be good then!

Most likely I would be joining the normal route around White Rocks - in which case I will look out for you from there on. In the unlikely event I try the Polish Glacier, I will still look out for you on the way down to White Rocks.

Whichever I wish you best of luck and an enjoyable trip - and here's hoping the weather is kind to us both! I shall also look out for some more of your wonderful pictures after the event!

Best wishes, Mark
