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.
Eszter and Cliff summitted Cotopaxi at 7:30 am on Saturday in a cloud.
The Ecuador team spent a few hours training on the Cotopaxi glacier this morning, getting a pre-dawn start to make sure they got practice before any weather rolled in. So far the weather is holding out.
They crew is in good spirits and everyone is stoked to be in the mountains!
We are stoked to be able to run our biggest and BEST contest yet - a trip giveaway to climb Cotopaxi, the world's tallest active volcano, in Ecuador. This is an incredible, introductory climbing trip and everyone should have the change to experience it.
