Dog Ascent Facts
Winelover from UnknownMay 17, 2005
In 1940, Pioneer climber Juan Jorge Link and his wife, Adrienne Bance (the first woman to climb Aconcagua), reached the summit with their dog FIFI. Link summited the mountain four times, always with his dog. On his fifth attempt, the couple disapered to be never found.

In 1945, the expedition that placed the first argentinian female Nelly Noller on top of Aconcagua, founded Fifi's frozen body few meters away from the top.

Over the last 15 years, dogs that follow muleteers or mule drivers (arrieros in spanish), that carry expedition's gear and supplys to Plaza de Mulas BC, often follow climbers all the way to the top.
