Nevado Juncal, at 20,163' is one of the most impressive mountains in the Chilean Central Andes, located 50 miles south of Aconcagua. This is a rarely visited area offering a tremendous variety of scenic climbing from moderate to technical.
After an enjoyable journey, with mules to carry our gear, we reach base camp at 8,910 feet. Here we are encircled by rugged alpine walls and a breathtaking view of Juncal.
Our climb ascends the heavily glaciated north side of the mountain.
Juncal is a challenging mountain to climb and one of our long time favorite trips.Climbers must have previous mountaineering experience, be in excellent physical condition, and be well acquainted with the use of ice axe, and crampons.
