Expeditions has been
active for the last 14 years, providing hosting services to
private expeditions and organizing climbing trips to Mercedario and other important mountains of the Central Andeans.
The idea was born in response to many climbers from different places
of the world who wanted to visit Ramada Range and
Mercedario Peak and did not have the necessary local infrastructure
and information to accomplish their expeditions. With this purpose,
Anibal Maturano (Don Mercedario´s director) started providing
transportation and load transfers to different Base Camps in 1998.
Don Mercedario grew rapidly and in the year 1999 we successfully ran
our first guided trip to Mercedario Normal Route. Since then, we
have earned a deserved reputation as the best local oparators,
advising climbers about all the potential of the region, giving
reliable information about routes, access, logistic, local weather
and running outstanding expeditions in the area.
