Seven Summits

3:15:40 PM
I would like to make contact with someone who has climbed Aconcagua and Elbrus .
I see there are a few with experience on this site.
In 2011 I climbed Kili, and this year I want to tackle the next 2, but would like to talk to someone about the " right gear", seeing as all advice is from those in America. Would like some Aussie advice .
Currently booked in for Elbrus in July and will be doing Aconcagua in Dec/Jan.

Steve Bell in Natimuk has climbed all seven. I'm sure a local would be able to put you in touch with him either via email or phone.

I haven't been to Elbrus but have summited Aconcagua twice, Vinson three times and Denali once. PM me for any info.

I climbed Elbrus 3 years ago. If you have any specific questions, feel free to hit me up.

Don't know if you still need help, but I went up Elbrus back in 2010 (normal route, independently with my brother) and just summited Aconcagua two weeks ago (with an organised group, up the Vacas Valley/False Guanaco route and down the normal route - Vacas valley is beautiful, recommend to go this way if you can). Be happy to try and answer any questions about gear - my email is peiyinlew(at)gmail(dot)com

It pains me to say this, but gear is cheapest bought overseas ie mail order, especially mountaineering stuff, as it's really expensive in Oz. My boots were less than half the price what they are in Australia...
