Once again I got an opportunity to work on Aconcagua for the third season total. As usual I worked as a guide for Fernando Grajales Expedition who gives the services for many international companies.
With Grjales group and summited on 12th January, 2015 and this makes my 5th summit of Mount Aconcagua the highest summit of America. This trip was international trip with clients come from USA, Japan, Canada, Ireland, Australia.
Was organized by Grajales expedition in Argentina but the group was from UK and through Jagged Globe Expedition in UK. I could not summit because I had to descent with the clients who felt little tired and bit sick due to the altitude, but they at least spent a night at camp colera (camp 3).
I was hired as a guide for Fernanda who was probably the first female to challenge the speed ascend of Aconcagua from the horcones main gate to the summit, I am sure she could do it but due to she had a chest infection with some super dry cough, we turned around from camp two and she will try again next year.
I was guiding for a Adventure Consultant team which was organized by Fernando Grajales expedition. There was a group of 12 peoples who comes from different countries; Australia, Canada, USA, England. This team was leaded by MatiasPrieto from Chile, Leonardo Miranda from Argentina, Agustin sambrana from Argentina and myself. I did not summit again because I had to turn around from the canaletta cave with few clients toward the last camp but we touched the 6700m. Clients was tired and had the sign of altitude sickness.
The last trip was ended on 17thFebruary, 2015 with a great success as we have no accidents and bad memories! Although all the team don’t make it to the top due to different health conditions and weather the important was to turn back all together safe and of course happy!
