The starry sky, and then the first rays of the sun, illuminated our path. The weather favored us, the sun was shining, a light breeze was blowing. There were a lot of climbers that day. I have not seen such traffic jams to the summit tower yet. In two ropes teams, at 13 and 15 o'clock, our full team stood at the top of Ojos del Salado. 360-degree views opened up to the eye, it's beautiful! The mountain was very difficult for the participants! Safely and also in full force, the group went down to the cars and safely reached the camp.

Nikita Slotin, the guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Papua New Guinea:

Greetings from the group "I love PNG", from the other side of the Earth!  On November 8, we arrived at Betty's lodge, where we tasted delicious trout from her farm. On November 9, we moved to the base camp of Wilhelm Peak. The last part of the way we walked in boots in the pouring rain. We had dinner and went to bed.

November 10th. At 1:00 the start from the camp. The trail began through the forest along the lake, which we saw only on the descent. After an hour of walking, a sharp climb up and up the rocky trail began. The starry sky illuminated our path, everyone made a wish. At dawn, a stunning view of the surroundings opened up and with the first rays of the sun we saw our peak, on which we stood after half an hour. The last part was rocky, where we had to climb up, but it was worth it! At 7:00, the whole team reached Wilhelm Peak. At 12:00 we went down to the base camp, ate trout caught in the lake and went further down.

Betty had caviar from the farm waiting for us and congratulations. Today we are already at the hotel, celebrating the successful ascent of Giluwe and Wilhelm, by the way, according to some sources, Wilhelm Peak is the highest point of Australia (Oceania).

Nikita Slotin, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Papua New Guinea:

 Greetings to all from Papua New Guinea from the group "I love PNG"! Today we had a busy day! We visited three local tribes at once. The history of the masked tribe is like this... Many, many years ago, this tribe began to be terrorized by other, larger tribes. And to protect themselves, they came up with the idea of dressing up as spirits, murdered tribesmen and scaring the invaders! Since then, they have kept these traditions and tell visitors about them. The second peace-loving tribe, who settled here about 100 years ago, dresses up in the feathers of the bird of paradise, which is depicted on the flag of the country. The third tribe, painted in the dead, symbolizes the connection with the ancestors, whom they buried openly across the river, without graves. The bones are still there. So they keep in touch with them. Tomorrow we plan to move to the lodge for climbing Wilhelm Peak.

Greetings to all from the Lenin Peak base camp from the group "Everything is going according to plan"! On 22.07.23, the group in full force at 13:30 stood on the peak with a height of 7134 meters. For many, this height has become a personal record, at which none of the participants is going to stop! We left Camp 3 at 2:00. An unpleasant wind was blowing, but the sky was starry, it remained to trust our gut and forecast. At 8:00 we climbed the 6800 "knife", the sun came out, and life immediately got better. The wind died down, and we began to roast our carcasses, slowly wandering to the top. The ascent from the Plateau of Parachutists was not easy, especially these takeoffs, behind which, as you think, there should be a peak, and there turns out to be another takeoff. And here it is!!! The summit! And on the descent, a bonus was waiting for us - a climb from the jumper to the third camp, to the long-awaited tents... And today our team is already at the height of 3600 in the bar.
