Aconcagua Trip Report (#17335)

This was my second try on this peak. Do not underestimate the wind or effects of elevation. It is a big mountain that requires a lot on summit day. I had one of my best climbs of my life, but it was definitely a long summit day. Hydration and food will be the key on summit day. The canelletta is a very difficult, mind-teaser. I found it best to focus on pace combined with breathing and not look up at the summit. The view of the south face is spectacular. Do not hesitate to contact me if you want to know more.
