Weather was great, even at the Windy Crest it was lull!

Although the climb was not difficult at all, I will remember Canaleta - for sure :)

Route Climbed: Polish Traverse Date Climbed: 29Dec2003  Sucess!

Very windy and very cold, but other than that, weather was very cooperative with us. We were fortunate! Not a single drop of precipitation the entire 19 days! That's not to say that some of us didn't get a little wet!!

The ascent, with three others including William Marler, from high camp at base of Polish Galcier took just under seven hours. It was fair, but cold and windy (when isn't it?).

Route Climbed: Normal from the North Date Climbed: 26 January 2004  Sucess!

A lot of snow on the mountain this season and some strange weather, but we had a near perfect summit day of 8 hours to the top.

Some spectacular views on a beautiful mountain.

Argentina is a great place.

It was an exceptionally dry year, thus made the upper mountain and especially the Canaletas tough. I reached summit at 2:00 p.m. At around 22,000 ft the winds just died, making it a memorable summit!

Route Climbed: Normal route  Sucess!

We climbed Aconcagua from December 11-24. We reached the summit on our first try after 7 hours from 'Lower white rocks' camp at about 10:45. It was a day with perfect weather, not too cold, so we stayed about 45 minutes on the top.

Route Climbed: Polish Traverse Date Climbed: December 4-22, 2003  Sucess!

It was a low snow year there this year. We used crampons only for the final 150 vertical feet; the windy crest had a dirt track right through the middle of it. The beginning of the season, and our trip was marked by a persistent lenticular and day after day of heavy winds, mainly from C2 up, but sometimes hammering as low as basecamp. Permit fees have gone up. Prices in Mendoza are generally lower, while mountain costs have stayed the same as in the last few years. Cheers to our Danish friends!

My partner and I climbed the route from the trailhead at Puente Del inca in 9 days. Summit day started at 19,600 feet. Round trip took about 12 hours. The weather was great until around 2pm when "Viento Blanco" moved quickly in on us. We survived unharmed, but one French man was not so lucky.

Spent 20 days on the mountain with Alpine Ascents. Quality outfit. Our summit window was tremendously windy and few parties made it. Great route for a strong hiker. Views really open up above 17,000 ft.

Climbed from Nido to the summit with my partner Tony Munch. Thanx to the Guardaparque and everyone at Campo Base! You guys made our stay wonderful. Had a bit of snow but still a great climb. Bring your crampons for the Canaleta!
