Very tough mountain but as beautiful as very few. The weather is pretty constant throughout the month: clear skies at night until 10 - 11 am when clouds from the west arrives and the wind picks up. It can be very cold too. Depending on the snow, the normal route (via chilean valleys) is easy up to 5400 mts. At that height, camping is somewhat exposed and wind gusts can give you a hard time. Although it can be climb in 10 days (round trip), it is advisable to add another 2 extra days.
