Aconcagua Theft and Property Destruction?
« on: Dec 6 2003, 03:45 »

I recently heard from a guide who has recent Aconcagua experience that theft and property destruction are becoming common on the mountain.  Apparently, there is a small group of people who are regulars on the mountain who have little to no regard for fellow climbers and have been known to throw tents and other gear off cliffs while climbers are away on a summit approach or day excursion and then set up their own camp in it's place.

Has anyone seen this utter lack of respect recently?

thanks

i have heard of this in news articles, and i must say, it disgusts me. but the people stealing and trashing the stuff are in the process of getting sued.
