The West face of Aconcagua

Bill,



Nice picture. We could not see it from the plane 2 years ago. No success this year?



Cheers

Re: The West face of Aconcagua

No success. My client had to go home early due to business issues at home and bad weather which helped him in his decision. Laurie stayed with his 4 clients and got to within 800 feet of the summit but turned the group around due to lateness in the day. They were moving too slow. It was very cold and windy this year which played a major part on the clients moral and general motivation. Cheers William (Bill)

Re: The West face of Aconcagua

Perhaps it is due to the digital camera and the fact that I zoomed in a little which helped eliminate most of the normal scratches and frost spots. I do remember the window as having had few blemishes but not being perfectly clean. The time of day helped as it was not all blue like it would be at midday. Cheers William

Re: Looks

I agree with Einar, having the same impression...what a starnge giant, for me it looks a bit like there were a few big mountains inside the one, really huge!
