A new group of the 7 Summits Club has started a climbing program on Ojos del Salado
Guide of the 7 Summits Club Nikita Slotin reports from Chile:
All Hola with Laguna Rosa from the group "Malaquitas"! This morning we managed to visit the mineral museum in Ñopiapo, we were amazed by the collection, especially meteorites... And then the road to the mountains began. 2 hours and we are on the pass at an altitude of 4000 meters, a couple of photos in the wind and a descent to 3750, where a whole flock of flamingos and guanacos were waiting for us! There are almost no people, and there are a lot of animals. It remains to wait for the arrival of karancho, an impudent but beautiful bird! Now we are resting, having dinner, and making plans for tomorrow! The weather pleases with warmth and sunshine. Tomorrow we go for a walk to the top of the Seven Brothers!
