Aconcagua Trip Report (#17342)

I summited together with Erik Slot after ascending the Polish glacier route until camp II. There we traversed the Falso de Los Polacos to White Rocks.
I strongly recommend this route as it is much more beautiful than the normal route. Als WR camp is better than Berlin: less exposed, less crowded and less filthy...
Aconcagua is beautiful, but beware: she can be very mean as well. We started out with 7 people, and after only a week we had already lost 5 due to AMS... Take your time and be very careful, this is certainly not the "walk-on-mountain" it is said to be.

Thanks & keep climbing,
