Three 6000m peak expedition argentina- Nov 06 2-Jun-2006 At 6:43:08 PM glacier-rat
Looking for partners for a trip to the Mercedario region of Argentina in November 2006.

Basic plan is to attempt Mercedario 6770m, Ramada 6400m, Polaco 6000m
along with anything else that can be squeezed in during the time frame of around 4 weeks. Im open to objectives and am a little flexible on dates.

Routes range from walk-up (aconagua - kilimanjaro style) to quite technical and demanding.

Nothing set in stone yet so am a little flexible with dates and objectives.

Flights ex Sydney (with Aerolineas Argentinas) start at about A$2,500, ground costs on a shared basis will work out to be around the A$1000 - A$1500 each (depending on size of team)

Pico Polaco 6000m

Cerro Ramada 6384m

This is a remote and fantastic place to climb, no permits required, low costs, great peaks, no crowds, cheap beer and beautiful settings.

If you're a shit-hot skiier/boarder, the south face of mercedario is for you! 2000m+ of vertical descent @ around 45 - 55degrees

Who's up ?
