Today, guides of the 7 Summits Club Boris Egorov and Vladimir Kotlyar met with their not numerous, but fervent and fighting new team. These are Aleksey Sivkov and Evgeny Lesnitsky, who have already traveled with the 7 Summit Club several times! And another guide, Alexander Dorojukov, met the following group. Everyone was met, luggage arrived in order. The guides checked the equipment, then there was traditionally drank some wine and Argentinean steaks. Tomorrow we get permits and move on up the mountains.
