A guide 7 Summits Club Sergey Avtomonov: The group "Three guest workers, not counting the dog"is in touch. Yesterday we crossed from Kothe to Tagnak, and on the way our dog decided to leave us. But it was immediately replaced by a new dog, so that's all right! In Tagnak, the local Sherpas were very insistent to persuade us to drink a local alcoholic drink, but we had work to do, so we refused. After the night, part of the group already felt the height and then during the day we walked slowly, but still reached the loggias of Khare. These are the last loggias on our way. The road has tired everyone, but we are serious. Tomorrow will be the last day of equipment preparation and technical skills training. Then we go to the base camp on the glacier.

 Namaste! This is a guide of the 7 Summits Club Sergey Avtomonov and the group "Three guest workers, not counting the dog". On the first night, a dog came to us and became part of our group. It, like us, works for food only! As for the food, the whole group tasted the local doshirak and it turned out to be beautiful!

On the first day, we climbed to the loggia at 4000m by the pleasant sunny weather. The next day promised to be difficult with the ascent of the Zatrva La pass. The ascent to the pass was like a ladder from the movie "The Lord of the Rings"! The fog and gathering rain urged us to go faster! In the evening, we went down to the Tuli Kharka lodge, where we were promised Internet. But because of the storm that started just a minute after we got there, it didn't work! The next day we went down to Kothe through a misty forest, similar to the forest of Baba Yaga. In the Kothe, finally, the Internet appeared and we are back in touch. But it won't be for long - tomorrow it will disappear again! As it is, all members feel great and is ready to move on!

Sergey Avtomonov, super-guide of the 7 Summits Club from Argentina: Here is a team of guides of the Russian camp of the 7 Summits Club on Aconcagua - Alex Abramov, Andrey Berezin and Sergey Avtomonov. Today we spent a night at the Nido de Condores camp.  At night, a snow storm began, many were afraid to fly away with tents. But nothing happened. In the morning we decided to go down to the base camp of the Plaza de Mulas to rest there before the assault and wait for the good weather. On arrival at the camp, we learned that some of the tents were torn or even flown away, we were lucky! We hope that soon everything will normalize, and we will go on an assault.
