Camp III is your high camp as you set out on an alpine start for the “Summit of the Americas.” Higher than any other peak outside the Himalaya, your views from the top of Aconcagua at 22,842 are, simply put, breathtaking. To the north and south, the Andes stretch as far as the eye can see. The stunning South Face of Aconcagua drops over 8,000 feet from the summit. To the west, you can see over Chile and almost identify the Pacific Ocean, which lies only a couple hundred miles away.
|Success on the summit of Aconcagua!|
