Photographer's Note

With almost 7.000m of altitude, Aconcágua and the highest summit of America, that characteristic does with that hundreds of people try conquer to each season, that begins in December and finishes in March. In only two days of easy walk, but of a beauty exuberant, and possible arrive to base. To leave of that point they begin the typical difficulties of high mountain as strong winds, snowstorm even in the summer, intense cold, air rarefied, that produce the typical symptoms of the altitudes, basically for who is not acclimated. In this image a team part of the first camp for the base, they will face a walk of 8 hours, in acclivity soft but constant. In a place as this, we are the sure that the man and just a mere accomplice, because in spite of every infrastructure and preparation only 30% of the adventurers get to reach the summit. Here the said nature the rules.
