The Aconcagua Experience
REI's instructor Jim Crosslin will be in attendance to talk about his Aconcagua Experience. Jim has already stated that although there are some who think that it's easy to climb Aconcagua, there are some factors that still make this pursuit a challenging one. Jim has mentioned the difficulties involving the distance, severe weather and the high altitude in trekking up Aconcagua. But there are still a lot to hear about this mountain which is also referred to as "The Stone Sentinel." Hear Jim's tips and be inspired of the rewards he acquired from attempting to climb Aconcagua first hand at Getting High in Argentina: Aconcagua 2016 event.
