"Me and my cousin Stefan climbed Aconcagua via the normal route in 15 days. This was my second attempt after 2011 when we turned back from camp Berlin because of the snow storm. We were lucky this time and the weather was perfect!" - Aconcagua, FilipVasileski, Feb 6, 2015
" Me and my fiancee flew into Mendoza and got checked in to our hotel. The next day we got our money exchanged, permits, the remainder of our food and last minute supplies like white gas and other things. We took a bus out on the third morning and got set up with our mule providers and started the hike to base camp stopping at Confluencia camp for two nights to acclimatize. It's here we discovered that the rumors are true about the high levels of magnesium in the water. Imodium turned out to be the only drug I used on the mountain. Once at Plaza de Mulas we took a rest day then carried " - Aconcagua, Yosemike, Feb 2, 2015
"I avoided the normal route due to reports of crevasses (I soloed the peak). I went straight toward the peak from the col just wnw of San Jose Norte, losing about 1,300 feet on the way to my final high camp at 16,700'. It is a good way to go if you are soloing as there really are no crevasses, but you definitely do need crampons and an ax. The route is easy, but the peak is big and high! I spent 5 nights total for the approach, climb, and descent. " - Cerro Marmolejo, tombrown, Feb 22, 2012
"This was my 3rd try on Mercedario after attempts in 2006 and 2009. From the last camp (La Ollada) we had perfect weather. Once on the ridge I continued solo to the summit. Beautiful views all around. Busy Aconcagua could be seen about 80km away, but I enjoyed the solitude on Mercedario" - Cerro Mercedario, russian-nomad, Jan 19, 2010
"I climbed Acouncagua from Normal route, starting from Plaza de Mulas and stopping at Nido de Condores and at Plaza Colera. I spent 2 nights in Plaza Colera before attaching the summit due to strong wind during the first night. It was cold and windy during the first part of the ascension. Great panorama from the summit without wind and clouds" - Aconcagua, edoardomartelli, Jan 9, 2010
