Description
 

Of the seven continental summits, Aconcagua (at 6962 m/22,840 ft) lies second only to Everest. Yet it is surprisingly free of snow and ice, and experienced hikers can reach the roof of the Americas without technical expertise. However, it is one of the world’s highest and toughest treks. Author Harry Kikstra has summited twice, and explains in detail how to climb Mount Aconcagua by the main trekking routes (Normal and Polish Traverse), as well as giving a useful summary on the technical Polish Glacier route.

This pocket-sized guidebook has a wraparound map flap, open-flat binding and waterproof paper. It contains all you need to plan and enjoy your attempt to climb Aconcagua:

  • concise advice from an expert about preparation, planning and choosing your gear
  • detailed information about altitude effects and sickness, and how to monitor and prevent them
  • fold-out map of Aconcagua showing the routes, with an enlargement of the summit area
  • 96 pages with open-flat binding
  • in full colour, with 60 photographs
