Watch our equipment guide to climb Aconcagua

Mountaineering is a very equipment-dependent activity. We depend on our equipment for comfort, performance, and survival since it happens in extreme environments.

Over 25+ years and 1000+ successful expeditions with thousands of climbers without any serious incident, we have found that thanks to our groups’ equipment requirements, our expeditions have been able to succeed where other teams have had to turn back.

Aconcagua is a mountain with low technical difficulty; its difficulty lies in the high altitude, the wind, low temperatures, thermal amplitude, the dry environment, and climatic conditions.

Clothing is a dynamic system that changes depending on each day’s conditions, each camp, and the weather conditions of the moment that are impossible to know in advance.
