This expedition is personally lead by Irelands leading high altitude mountaineer Jason Black. This is a great expedition for aspiring mountaineers looking to really stretch themselves and tackle some higher altitudes. The mountain itself is challenging and should not be underestimated but with sufficient preparation and training will be a significant achievement to stand on the highest point of South America. The route is non-technical, there is no need for years of experience. There is still a high level of fitness required. This expedition is more physically and mentally demanding than mountains like Mount Elbrus or Mount Kilimanjaro, requiring a good working knowledge of camping, cooking and cold weather survival skills. Our expedition teams are normally between 6 and 10 people. The guide to member ratio is 1:5 on Aconcagua. Summit day is a big mountaineering day and any person contemplating Aconcagua should be prepared for extremely cold conditions.
