  Artem Rostovtsev: the next tourist season in Antarctica has ended. We went skiing with a group under the "Last Degree" program to the South Pole, climbed in full force on two consecutive expeditions to the top of the Vinson massif. And there was also one successful ascent of the 7 Summits Club group on the Sidley volcano under the leadership of Lyudmila Korobeshko.

Everything went great. We didn't lose anyone, we didn't forget, we didn't freeze them. The equipment was packed in storage on the glacier and in Punta Arenas until the next season. And we brought a lot of impressions and photos/videos with us.

 The second group on Vinson. Some photos.

According to the information received, today the group of the 7 Summits Club under the leadership of Artyom Rostovtsev reached the summit of Mount Vinson and descended safely. The ascent took place in a normal mode, all participants and two guides reached the highest point. Unfortunately, this year it was not possible to establish a stable connection with the groups that were in the Vinson area. But we will be waiting for full information, photos and videos upon the team's return to the Union Glacier base.

Artem Rostovtsev, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Antarctica:

 Hello Seven Summits! These are the far South, Antarctica. Vinson Massive, expedition on Mount Vinson with Artyom Rostovtsev. Yesterday we moved from Union Glacier to Base Camp and today we decided to go straight up to Low Camp. We're fine here, we're alone – no more commands, no one bothers us. The plan is to spend a couple more days here, but we will look at the weather. Everything is fine with everyone. The group feels fine, the participants are motivated. We will relax and then continue to storm the summit.

Huge Antarctic greetings to all! The day before yesterday, having caught a sunny windless weather window, the whole team climbed to the top of the Mount Vinson, yesterday we already went down to the base camp and today, squeezing into the weather window again, we safely flew to the comfortable Union Glacier. And then we were reunited with the team of Luda Korobeshko, who returned from the summit of the Sidley volcano.

Greetings for all Seven Summits from the group going to the Vinson Massive. The guys waited for the flight to Antarctica for an extra two days in Punta Arenas. Today, the band finally reunited at the Union Glacier base. But again there is a hitch, Vinson's base camp is in the clouds and the flight there by small plane is delayed until morning. Hopefully no longer...

Hello everyone This is Antarctica. Yesterday we finished our ski run to the South Pole. As a result, there are only 1.5 days of bad weather and 4 days of average weather for 8 running days. We went around the Earth's axis at the pole several times along all the meridians. Now we warm up and eat off. And of course I'm waiting for the next group on Vinson Massive.

Hello, Seven Summits! This is Artem Rostovtsev. We have reached the South Pole. Our expedition ended at the South Pole, everything is fine. As planned, we came to lunch time. And we visited the "ceremonial" South Pole. Then we went to the true South Pole. Although it was cool, the sun was shining. In general, we are not frozen. The day went great. I believe that our expedition has achieved its goal and was successful. Big greetings from the South Pole from Artem Rostovtsev.

Artem Rostovtsev, the guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Antarctica, from the vicinity of the South Pole:

Hello, Seven Summits! This is Artem Rostovtsev. We are currently in Antarctica, the expedition "The last degree to the South Pole". We are already less than a degree from the pole. Four days have passed. We are very lucky with the weather. Well, everything, of course, is monotonous around — a white desert. But so far we haven't tired to death. We are moving towards our goal, the South Pole, where we hope to be soon. We will definitely please you with news from there, with a call. Another hello to everyone from far, far away. We are 40 kilometers away from the lower exit of the axis from the globe — to the South Pole.

Artyom Rostovtsev, the guide of the 7 Summits Club reports from Antarctica, from the Union Glacier base:

 Hello everyone! The weather postponed the flight by only one day. Now we are already in Antarctica, and now the Antarctic season has really begun. So far, according to the forecast, the vicinity of the pole is not very suitable for flights, we will spend at least one day on the Union Glacier. There will be something to do, we will practice with the equipment before going on the route already in the environment for which it was created. Skis, sleds, stretches, systems.

And yes, there is Wi-Fi!

 For the first time in history, an Internet connection has been established with Antarctica this year. We are waiting for new reports and operational information from Artyom!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The first Antarctic group of the 7 Summits Club on its way to the South Pole is waiting for the weather in the southernmost city of Punta Arenas in Chile

Artem Rostovtsev, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Punta Arenas (Chile):

Punta Arenas, the southernmost mainland town in the world, broadcasts. From here, all expeditions to the Vinson Massif, to the Sidley volcano and the "Last Degree" to the South Pole on skis will start. First, a flight to Union Glacier, which is only 3,000 km away. This season the 7 Summits Club has 4 expeditions: The "Last degree" once, twice the highest point of Antarctica the Vinson Massif, and once the highest volcano in Antarctica Mount Sidley.

According to the plan, the first group for the "Last degree" was already supposed to take off today, but the weather is making adjustments. We've packed and prepared, but we're still waiting. Today, the expectation was diluted with a visit to the museum with 1:1 replicas of famous ships on which Magellan made his exploratory voyages at the beginning of the XVI century and almost 300 years later Fitzroy. Charles Darwin was on the latter's team. Desperate and brave people were, to go into the unknown on such ships.

Tomorrow we will go higher, to the glacier, look at the situation, and at the same time we will acclimatize before the decisive summit day.

The most tired on their return to the hotel found the strength to restorative swim in the pool. Tomorrow we will finally feel Orizaba, we will get to the Base Camp on its slope.

Hello everyone  Kazbek, Refuge Meteostation, is in touch. Namely,  the group "Dog's heart". Today we all visited the top of Kazbek. The weather on the mountain is fine for several days, you need to walk and climb. Which we did. We walked compactly, we were all together at the top.  That's just the plan to escape down to Kazbegi that same day failed, the mountain left no strength. Tomorrow we will go down and celebrate our success.
