Vertical World Seattle says
Vertical World is proud to host the Beta Night Series with our friends from Mountain Madness. Join us as we invite local and international guides to present a free evening of slideshows, trip reports, and socializing covering some of the most inspiring adventure destinations around the globe!

We're looking forward to our upcoming show with Jamie Pollitte, the North American Program Director of Mountian Madness. Come and learn the basic components of setting up an expedition to a spectacular summit such as Aconcagua:

- Physical Preparation
- Travel Logistics
- Equipment
- Route Options
- Mountain Resources
- Permits
- Acclimatization

Aconcagua is the highest point in both the Western and Southern Hemisphere at 22,838 ft located in the Andes mountain range in Argentina. It is one of the most attainable of the 7 summits to climb. With a minimum amount of mountaineering experience most physically fit individuals can make a bid for this high altitude summit. Jaime will be providing vaulable expedition planning beta applicable to not just Aconcagua but to other summits as well.
