Title: Equipment Hire in Mendoza
Post by: Ian2u on Aug 28 2006, 01:39
I have a friend doing Aconcagua in january, he has little equipment and wanted to hire as much as he can in Mendoza.  (Down Jacket, Sleeping Bag, Plastic Boots etc) does anyone have phone numbers or web or email addresses for hire shops so he can contact them now and check what is available. 
Thanks
Ian

Hi Ian,

If I come across phone numbers, I'll let you know.  I have a couple books somewhere too.  But here is the place where we got white gas, and they had equipment there.  As well, there were other equipment shops nearby there too.  It was in the center area of Mendoza.

It was called El Refugio.  Sale and Rent Aconcagua Equipment.  Address was 290 something.  I got that off the picture I took!

Good luck.  Mountain John
