The guide of the 7 Summits Club Artem Rostovtsev reports from Argentina:

Hello to all from the Quatro Mosqueteros group! Yesterday we had the summit. Despite the so-so forecast with strong winds along the top, the weather yesterday was almost exceptionally perfect and, for our part, did not prevent us from going to the mountain in any way. Moreover, in full force. The Musketeers did not think it was enough to walk to the top and they decided not to stay in the assault camp on the descent, but to go straight down to the base camp - Plaza de Mulas. Today we come to our senses, blow off the dust from the equipment.

Tomorrow he goes down and we move to Chile to Atacama, to our next goal - the volcano Ojos del Salado. Active assistance in the ascent was provided by another guide of the 7 Summits Club, Valera Myasoedov, who played the role of de Treville.

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Artem Rostovtsev reports from Argentina:

Yesterday-today on Aconcagua. We went up to the Nido de Condores camp. We are almost not tired. We even managed to sleep well. The forecast was for the whole day 90-100km/h along the summit, and we need to complete acclimatization by walking at 6000m. So we packed up and went out thinking that if it gets really bad, we'll be back in half an hour. However, we returned after 4 hours, reducing the plan quite a bit, we did not reach 50 meters in height. Now the group is already resting under the howling wind in the Plaza de Mulas. The forecast for the next few days looks so-so, but we will try to conjure.

Diary of the expedition on Aconcagua.

January 22. We walked to an abandoned hotel, it didn't seem enough. We went higher. Upon returning to the camp, we looked into the high-mountain art gallery to Miguel Doura.

January 23.  The acclimatization rotation to the Canada camp. On the way we met our friend Maksut Zhumaev. We spent some time at the top point, enjoyed the scenery and had lunch with quesadillas. We went down, along the way we learned to move along the scree slopes. Those who arrived with new shoes collected shoals. We will glue the scuffs on the feet until they take the shape of a shoe. The evening was spent in the company of Rustam Nabiyev (a disabled man without legs), who had climbed on the top of Aconcagua the day before.

 

 

Everyone is inspired and delighted by his feat – to ascend on hands only!

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Artem Rostovtsev reports from Argentina:

Today the expedition of our small team began to the highest peak of South America, Aconcagua, and then to the highest volcano of the same continent, Ojos del Salado. The latter, by the way, is the second highest peak in South America. We are already at the entrance to the National Park. And the expedition began, of course, a little earlier, even late last night we gathered as a team in the city of Mendoza. There wasn't much time for steaks and malbec, but we managed. Unexpectedly, in parallel with us, a group starts on Aconcagua with the guides of the 7 Summits Club Dmitry Semenov and Alexander Dorojukov. We will be together for a while and with similar news.

 

 

By the way, Karl Egloff, the star of high-speed ascents, is running away to the mountain tonight, really running away. The goal is simple - from the gates of the park to the top of Aconcagua and back in 11 hours. He can.

Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club:

The season in Antarctica has ended. It was not the longest for the 7 Summits Club, but as always productive. All the participants and guides managed to stand on the top of the Vinson massif. And the final group was lucky to be on the summit in quiet sunny windless weather, so the predicted -32 felt like -10. Now everyone has already gone home, the expedition equipment has been checked, repaired, preserved and is waiting for the next season. We invite everyone! Everyone who is ready.

 Greetings from the island of Tierra del Fuego! Our sudden exploration of these areas for future programs is coming to an end. We have already managed to drive more than 2000 km, all roads to the end. To go and run for a hundred kilometers, it's a pity we didn't take a kayak, more locations would be available. Undeterred animals and birds, beautiful untouched views around: mountains, forests, lakes, islands, straits – there was everything. There are plans to get to higher mountains covered with glaciers. This is the next time, but very soon. Guides Artem Rostovtsev and Lena Abramova.

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

Greetings to all from the group "Touching Everest"! It is all over, almost, except for a small nuance – the participants are waiting for a helicopter to fly to Kathmandu. And the helicopter is waiting for good weather, and the weather is not promised today. Yesterday we descended from the second high-altitude camp to the base camp without much difficulty. The burning sun and accumulated fatigue made it a little difficult to enjoy a walk along the majestic. And today all people are already at a low start towards big cities. Except for the guide, who goes up again at night.
