Time to kick off the IMG Aconcagua season. IMG guides Peter Adams, Jonathan Schrock and Martin Lucero have their team together now in Mendoza, Argentina. Sunday was the first ‘official’ day of the expedition. The guides were finishing final shopping/packing today as the last of the team was arriving. Everyone’s now together and with all their luggage. Always a good thing. They’ll wrap up gear checks, final packing and secure the required permit to climb Aconcagua.
Aconcagua is a big climb, a true expedition. While not technically demanding, members need to physically quite fit and ready to work as part of a team for two weeks. No small task. Second group will be heading down in a week. It’s show time.
