The only English-language guidebook to South America's
highest mountain, featuring 27 routes from the three
major approaches and thoroughly researched advice on
lodging, permits, equipment, seasons, weather and more.
Reaching the highest summit in the Western hemisphere
requires careful preparation and detailed instruction. R.
J. Secor draws upon his extensive mountaineering
experience to give climbers all that's necessary to top
Aconcagua's 22,841-foot peak. This updated and revised
guide features comprehensive information on recommended
equipment, safety and health precautions, and
conservation issues. It details both the popular and less-
travelled routes reached via the Horcones Valley, South
Face, and Vacas and Relinchos Valleys. Also included are
a climbing history of Aconcagua and a glossary of
valuable Spanish mountaineering phrases.
