Aconcagua Expedition, Argentina

Greetings from Talkeetna!  The weather is getting colder but we still have climbing on our minds.  Our season kicks off with an Aconcagua climb.  We offer a smaller group 6 climbers and 2 guides.  This is a excellent deal and a wonderful way to see Argentina!  What a nice way to start the new year!


Aconcagua West Face


At just under 7000 meters, Aconcagua ranks as the highest mountain outside of Asia. The exact origin of its name is unclear, but translates to Stone Sentinel from the Inca word, "Acon Cahuak." Located in the heart of the Central Andes, Aconcagua was first climbed in 1897 from the northwest via the Horcornes Valley. Named the Normal Route, it is the most direct way up the mountain.

Today's Testimonial Advanced Mountaineering

"The course exceeded all expectations.  The AMS staff are friendly and helpful.  Our guides were world class and on top of their game!  The course was challenging,  enlightening and fun.  I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to expand their knowledge base and skill level.  AMS is simply the best!"

 The Advanced Mountaineering Course provides experienced climbers the opportunity to learn and apply new skills in a challenging mountaineering environment. Focus is placed on decision-making skills necessary for making successful peak ascents in the Alaska Range. With instructors' guidance, students evaluate terrain, identify hazards, and make route-finding decisions.

Gorgeous October Days!

At AMS HQ the leaves are gone and we are waiting for the snow. In the meantime, the sunrises are spectacular and you don't have to get up early to see them.
Denali, Hunter and Foraker this morning at 8:38 AM. (so pretty, I was late for work!)

We are have room on our Foraker Expedition scheduled April 28- May 14. If you want a real challenge then we can arrange a custom Mount Hunter expedition. Denali Expeditions continue to fill for the West Buttress route and we have a West Rib expedition May 18 to June 7.

Happy Climbing,
