In December, the “El Fede” foundation will go to Aconcagua

The purpose of the trip is to continue to improve the efforts to make this mountain safer. The 3 rescue caches that were installed in January 2010–one year after Federico Campanini’s death–have had immense success in aiding the rescues on the mountain.
The amount of rescues and evacuations that this mountain sees is astounding, over 200 is a normal amount. Unfortunately, Aconagua’s 2013 seasons was also touched by tragedy and death. As a result, the rescue caches have been depleted. The foundation’s goal is to return and change the containers as well as refill them with necessary equipment such as oxygen, Skeds and first aid kits.
