I’m looking for partners to climb Mercedario (6700m) in Argentina. The mountain is technically easy, but there are strong winds, and high altitude, so it is still quite challenging to reach the pick.
The main part of the budget is the plane ticket to Mendoza, and then we need to get to the trail head — renting a truck is 800$, round trip, maximum for 5 people. So the more we are, the less we pay. I’ve got experience in high mountains (Damavand 5610, Iran,2014; Pico de Orizaba 5630, Mexico, 2017; Finsteraarhorn, 4274, Switzerland, 2017), so we do not need any guide, what we really need is good physical condition, and some warm clothes.
My dates are flexible, it can be (almost) any time in January or February.
The great adventure is waiting!
