Emboldened by our trip to Kilimanjaro, I and a friend of mine traveled to Argentina to attempt to summit Aconcagua, the tallest mountain outside the Himalayas.
It’s also the tallest peak in the Western and Southern hemispheres, and it’s in the Andes very close to Mendoza, which is a city charming enough to visit on its own merits.
This book is an account of our adventure plus all the facts you need if you are considering a similar trip yourself. Plus there’s jokes. Tons of them. Hilarious ones.
