Sunset on AconcaguaHello from Berg Adventures, Mount Aconcagua. Today was a big day, we left Plaza de Canada at 16,000 feet (4876 meters) and we climbed up to Nido de Condures at 17, 700 feet (5394 meters).

The team is moving really well. It took us three and half hours approximately and today for the first time in addition to climbing on rocks we also spent a long time climbing on snow, which was fun.

Nido de Condures, it really lives up to its name, which in English means condor’s nest. The view on all sides is absolutely spectacular. If we look to the southeast we see the summit.
