Message from Oleg Mezentsev from Sidley Volcano:
Hello from Antarctica! I report: we are in Low Camp, in the morning we plan to climb the summit. Wish us good luck!
The ALE team arrived in the Sidley Volcano area on Monday, January 13th. However, weather conditions did not allow to begin climbing in the first three days.
