    Normal Route
    This 18-day program was designed thinking on the proper balance between time of acclimatization and summit success. Ideal for climbers who already have a previous acclimatization or that prefers shorter programs.
    About the Route
    The Normal route starts with an acclimatization trekkings to Plaza Francia, and then we made the approach to Plaza de Mulas, a 40 km trek. It takes us three days to get to Plaza de Mulas. This guarantee a very good acclimatization before start the climbing of Aconcagua.
    Our suggested program includes two days of double equipment porting and security. When the last stage begins, we go higher and higher until we reach the summit. In the Aconcagua, sometimes the presence of a white wind makes the ascent difficult, this is what we use the security days for thus increasing the chances of reaching the summit.
