An adventure in the heart of one of the corners of the most extraordinary high mountains of the Andes. As in the historical expedition of the Poles in 1934, which inspired the mountaineer Victor Ostrowsky (member of the aforementioned expedition) to write one of the (but most important) mountain climbing books in Argentina, when they crowned 5 of the 6 summits of more than 6000 meters that are here, including the Mercedario (6701 masl), one of the 13 mountains of more than 6500 meters high in the Americas, only 100 km north of Aconcagua.
