Gear hire in Argentina
« on: Dec 14 2004, 15:45 »

Hi,

Can any of you tell me how much it would cost to hire out Crampons and an ice axe for Aconcagua. One of my team members was quoted 70 euro. Personally I think that sounds a bit steep. Do you have any experience of this?

Thanks

Hey Daisy,

I thought you were already on the way! This soudns a bit steep, 70 euros, almost $100!

there are several smaller shops in Mendoza that should get you a better deal, the most wellknown is Orviz:
Casa ORVIZ - Tienda de montaña de José Orviz
Juan B. Justo 532 Mendoza - CP 5500 - Argentina - TelFax: 54-261-4251281
info@orviz.com - orviz@lanet.com.ar - www.orviz.com
 
Hope this helps,
Have a great trip, make lots of pix and most of all take care and be safe 8)

Hi there Harry!

No, not gone yet...just 11 days to go and still so much to do!

Hopefully I'll have some nice pics to post when I get back and that all will go ok  :)

Thanks for the link!
