Mercedario, the highest mountain in San Juan, and the seventh of America. Season by season, this hill is receiving more and more international climbers looking for authentic experiences, new challenges and less crowded mountains. Near from Aconcagua, is 6770 meters high above sea level and different ways to get to the summit, some of them not explored or rarely performed. Rock, Ice and Mix climbing with the entire difficulties and lengths spectrum can be done here. Is a wonderful site to discover, doing trekking, climbing, or horseback riding and it hosts some archeological pieces from the Incas and picturesque sceneries.
