All the participants of the expeditions went home safely.  They received diplomas and medals for their Antarctic achievements.

Vladimir Kotlyar, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Antarctica:

Aloha, the 7 Summits Club! This is Vladimir Kotlyar and a group of climbers on the highest point of Antarctica, the Vinson Massif. As you already know, we reached to the top yesterday. All the participants have ascended, which they are very happy about. Today we went down to the base camp. We pitched tents, had a delicious meal, drank a little. We did another PCR test, well, this is already the reality of our trips and travels. And, in general, we had a good time.  We are preparing to fly to Union. I hope he will be here soon. But! Having learned from the experience of past expeditions, I did not allow us to drink all the available liquids in stock today. And we decided to divide them into four days. So as not to sit and not get bored waiting for the plane. But who knows, maybe the plane will be quite soon.  In general, everything is cool ... We send you warm hugs, strong handshakes from here, from Antarctica! The season can be considered over.

Hello! This is Vladimir Kotlyar. We climbed on the top of Mount Vinson and we have already descended. It is cool!  All members of our group, on January 13 at 7 pm Chilean time, we stood at the top. Everything is fine. Now we have already gone down to the Low Camp, have set up a camp. We fry burgers, drink pisco, in short, celebrate, normally. In three days we were able to reach the summit - it's cool! Greetings from us, big, big, and the warmest Antarctic hugs!

Vladimir Kotlyar, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Antarctica:

Aloha, 7 Summits Club! Vladimir Kotlyar and his final expedition to the Vinson Massif in Antarctica are in touch. Today we arrived at the Vinson Massif base camp. And by chance we reached Low Camp right away, all together, with full equipment.  We have already set up a camp here thoroughly, set up a dining tent, tents for sleeping. Now we are cooking dinner, frying meat, delicious. With some alcohol and something else…

The group of the 7 Summits Club broke out of the snow captivity of the Vinson Massif and flew to the Mainland, and a new expedition began in Antarctica

Vladimir Kotlyar, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Antarctica:

Aloha, the 7 Summits  Club! The guides Alexander Dorojukov and Vladimir Kotlyar are in touch. Well, today we finally flew out of the Vinson Massif base camp to Union Glacier. And here we immediately met a large plane from Punta Arenas. The previous group, which climbed the summit, flew to a populated land, to a large continent. Well, we met a new group. In general, everything happened so quickly. What I would like to say. Hugged, kissed, shook hands with the previous group. There was a lot of it. But when the friends left and boarded the plane, it seems that this was not enough.

Therefore, Sasha and I sent our warmest Antarctic hugs and handshakes there, to the Mainland, to the friends from the previous group. We've missed you a lot, to be honest, although it's only been a couple of hours since you left. So come on, drink a can of beer for us there, eat a piece of meat! Well, Sania and I are announcing a new expedition to the Vinson Massif open. I hope we will fly to base camp tomorrow, and today we will stay at Union Glacier. Everyone, thank you all!

Vladimir Kotlyar, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Antarctica: Aloha to the Seven Summits Club! The group going to the South Pole, guide Vladimir Kotlyar, participants Valery and Yuri Shamrilo from Belarus are in touch. We long time waited for the weather and  at last flew to the starting point. Unfortunately, due to the fact that we spent many days on the Union Glacier, we had only four days left, at most, an we shortened the program. We are not going to "the last degree", but "the last half degree". Which is also, in principle, not bad, not bad – we have already walked three kilometers and we will probably walk three or five kilometers more today. That's enough for the first day. We will set up a camp, rest, and tomorrow we will go as much as possible! We are looking for the South Pole…

The group with guides Nirmal Purja and Tashi Lakpa went on the classic route "The Last degree".

The group of the 7 Summits Club "PingVinson" or "Vinson-2" has finally arrived at Union Glacier, a new period of waiting has begun here

Vladimir Kotlyar, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Antarctica: Aloha to the 7 Summits Club! The expedition to the Vinson Massif is in touch. Guides Artem Rostovtsev, Vladimir Kotlyar and Nirmal Purja. We're finally back on Union Glacier. We sat in the base camp for four days, waiting for the weather. And today we were lucky. I can't say that the flight was absolutely uneventful, we were a little shocked.  But our pilots are real professionals and that's why everything ended fine. Despite the severe turbulence. Artem and Mikhail stayed at the Vinson Massif base camp to continue climbing program. Other participants came to the Union Glacier base. And now the main part of the group is waiting for a flight to Punta Arenas. Well, the part of the group that goes with me to the South Pole, we are waiting for departure to the starting point.  So wish us good luck! I hope we will complete one more of our tasks and reach the South Pole. Everyone, adios!
