Participant Information

Girls & Mountains Presentation: “Which one of you is the guide?” The story of an all-women’s, unguided expedition to the top of South America: Aconcagua

Girls and Mountains are three women who can’t climb enough mountains! We met through the ACC and BCMC and have been climbing together ever since. A seed was planted to climb the highest peak outside of Asia and we agreed it had to be done! Our goal was to complete an all women’s, self-propelled ascent of Aconcagua, but what we achieved was so much more than that. Through high winds, snow, altitude, hunger, and heavy packs we trudged on when many other teams turned back, becoming “famous” on our side of the mountain. One nickname was the “Three Canadian Chicas”, since we were the only all women’s team, guided or not, demonstrating to many that it may not be a common thing to see in that region, but that it’s possible. This presentation will outline what it takes to prepare for an expedition like this, as well as tell the story of our journey. Come join us to learn a thing or two, but more importantly for a laugh!
Everyone is welcome[2]
