Aconcagua 6962 Meter / Argentien Dec. 1998
Climbing partner: Andrea Lakatos
This is my second time on Aconcagua.
We started from Santiago de Chile and drove by a CATA Bus to Puente del Inca. At that time,
fortunately we could arrange everything in Puente del Inca, inclusive a climbing permit.
We took 16 days, started from Puente del Inca, climbed the Regular Route of Acancagua, and returned to Puente del Inca.
And we spent a extra excellent day in Base Camp, because of the Charismas Party. It's the biggest
event of the year in Base Camp and to be cause for celebration!
