Meat on the grill on our Aconcagua climb in Argentina
Posted: Thursday, November 20, 2014

One of the luxuries of Aconcagua is its proximity to Mendoza. A stunningly beautiful city, flowing with wine and packed with decadent food. The city is an Alpenglow favorite, and we explore and indulge in Mendoza both pre and post climb. So as you can probably see…we take our food very seriously at Alpenglow! But it’s an essential component of having the strength to climb big mountains and is also integral to experiencing the culture around you.
