IMG Aconcagua Climb Itineraries
For the 2022-23 season, we will be offering climbs from both the False Polish Guanacos Variation Route and the Horcones Valley Normal Route. The Normal Route team will ascend and descend from the same side of the mountain. The False Polish Route team will climb from one side of the mountain to High Camp, summit and then descend the other side. Climbers are expected to arrive no later than Day 1 for gear checks and review of the details for the expedition. We spend two days in Mendoza making final preparations and doing our mandatory National Park check in where we will obtain our permits. Our expedition gets underway with a drive to the Park Entrance where we will repack loads for the mules. The rate of ascent will be dictated by the weather, the strength of the group, and our rate of acclimatization. All climbing decisions will be made by the guides, with the best interest of the group in mind. A good weather expedition might take 18 days on the mountain. Average time is 20 days, and 22-23 days is not unusual.
