//1 February 2018, in a full moon, without the slightest wind// This mountain appeared on my list quite unexpectedly… In preparation for another summit, I needed to take the altitude and #aconcagua fit perfectly in terms of difficulty.
I was worried about my preparation, as I had a minor surgery 2 months before the trip, but the recovery period takes 2 to 3 months. This meant I wasn’t supposed to lift anything heavier than 10kg until the trip. My training was limited to jogging for 5 weeks before I left and a small set of exercises. I went to Argentina with the idea that I would climb where I could…
I took the whole trip as a great adventure and a test of my body. I didn’t expect much and with each new camp I was happy. While the serious mountaineers were warming up in their tents, we were partying and having fun at every opportunity (we will have a separate post about our entertainment).
And now, unexpectedly, I found myself on the summit, saying aloud in one of the first videos “it was easy”.
Thank you, #aconcagua, for letting me in and letting me go. Thank you to our best guide for her patience and professionalism! Thank you to everyone who supported and believed in me

I want to participate
