Welcome to my website on our ascent of Aconcagua in Argentina in January 2003. With its altitude of 6962 meters, Aconcagua is the highest mountain in South America.

You might be wondering: what's the use of this website, there are already many other Aconcagua websites? Well, Wouter van Kammen, my climbing companion on Aconcagua, died on July 21 2003 in an avalanche on Alpamayo in Peru. As a result, the memory of our trip on Aconcagua has become very special, and therefore I would like to give you a report on this trip.

  Right now, this site is only available in Dutch, but if you follow the link "in memoriam" in the menu, you will find an impressive English poem. You can post a message in the "Gastenboek".   Wouter (on the right) and me (on the left) on the summit of  Aconcagua, January 24 2003.
