'The Love Caravan'- Aconcagua
360's Jo Bradshaw and 8 of her client friends set off on an Aconcagua expedition
Fierce snow-storms, battering winds, steep ground just below its summit and its near 7,000m altitude would surely make the mighty Aconcagua tumble off the list that designates it as a trekking peak. Although technically straightforward, an ascent of this mountain, the tallest of all the Andean giants, firmly crosses over into the realm of a high altitude mountaineering expedition. Physical toughness, mental resilience and a hearty dose of luck are required to reach the top of South America.
