Our Lyudmila has no equal in the whole world! There are three times on the "Seven Summits" - a world record! Not the first one, by the way

 Having climbed the summit of the Vinson Massif, Lyudmila Korobeshko fulfilled the norm of the "Seven Summits" program for the third time, ascents on the highest peaks of all continents.   Actually, not even two times has any woman in the world done it. So the advantage in this game of the director of the 7 Summits Club  is absolute!  And there are only a few men with such an achievement. Let's add two poles on skis, two more eight-thousand-meter Cho-Oyo and Manaslu, seven-thousand-meters peaks, six of the seven volcanoes, Mount Kosciusko, climbing and trekking around the world. And the management of the company and the family. At the same time, natural beauty and intelligence, the ability to learn, charm, a unique husband and a talented son.

Lyuda is a real hero of Russia!  She is worthy of the memory of her grandfather, the Hero of the Great Patriotic War Miron Korobeshko!

We are proud of you! Your 7 Summits Club.

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…

Lyudmila Korobeshko, Director of the 7 Summits Club, from Punta Arenas (Chile):

Hello everyone from Antarctica! Yesterday (or rather today) our friendly group  finally escaped from the snow captivity of Antarctica! On the way to the breakthrough - on the Union - we met Nims (he climbed Vinson with our previous group, then went to the South Pole and also got into Antarctic captivity). We had a little photo shoot with him. And after midnight we arrived on the Mainland, in Punta Arenas.  There, the guides awarded all the participants of our group with certificates for climbing and large commemorative medals. Now we already miss Antarctica and our friends  Vladimir Kotlyar and Alexandr Dorojukov, who stayed there to work with the next group.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

Vinson. 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. ... read more

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!

Happy New Year to everyone!

They successfully coped with the "Last Degree" program, having skied about 110 kilometers. Now all the participants and guides are already resting at the Union Glacier base.

Lyudmila Korobeshko, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, director of the company: Hello everyone from Antarctica! Now we are in the High Camp. Just recently, the last participants came here. We went up in three groups. Someone faster, someone slower. The fastest – in 6 hours, the slowest - in 10 hours. The group, of course, is large and the forces are very unequal. Nevertheless, tomorrow, January 3rd, we want to storm the whole team and hope for a successful ascent. Moreover, the weather is still good. We are a little worried, because not everyone was given last trek easily. Nevertheless, we are planning an assault by the whole team tomorrow. Wish us good luck!

Lyudmila Korobeshko, super-guide of the 7 Summits Club, director of the company, from Antarctica:

Hello everyone from Antarctica! This is Lyudmila Korobeshko from Low Camp. First of all, happy New Year 2022! Today, our friendly team of 15 people made a heroic transition from Base Camp to Low Camp, to a height of almost 2000 meters. In general, it was not easy, because we had to carry a lot of cargo. In general, the march took about eight hours. And we celebrated the New Year in Russia somewhere along the way.  But the Chilean New Year has already been celebrated directly at the camp, where a good party was held. We joined up with groups of other expeditions that came here, some yesterday, some today. Tomorrow, according to the plan, we have a rest day. Our guides, Sasha Dorojukov and Volodya Kotlyar plan to bring all our necessary equipment to the High Camp. And if all this works out, then the day after tomorrow, on January 2, we want to move completely to the High Camp and try the next day, on the 3rd, to storm the summit.

Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club, who returned from Antarctica: News from Antarctica. Three expeditions of the 7 Summits Club to the Vinson Massif have been successfully completed. The beginning of the season was not very friendly in the weather. This delayed us a little on the mountain, but did not prevent everyone from successfully climbing on the summit.

Our group "Vinson-4" or  "7 Nations Army", a very multinational team, flew to Antarctica and immediately we were transferred to the base camp at 2200. Here we have set up our camp, now we are sorting things out, had dinner.   It's almost twelve o'clock at night, and in general, we'll be going to bed slowly. Tomorrow, according to the plan, we will make a depot. And, probably, the day after tomorrow we will move to the Low Camp. All participants feel well. However, part of our expedition in the form of three Nepalese Sherpas has not joined us yet, because they are still going Last Degree. Otherwise, everything is fine.

The team of the 7 Summits Club "Vinson-4" gathered in Punta Arenas and came up with a name for themselves

Lyudmila Korobeshko, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, director of the company, from Punta Arenas (Chile):

Greetings to all from the edge of the world from Punta Arenas! We decided to call ourselves "7 nations army" - we counted representatives of so many countries in our group. Although Sherpas will still join us in Antarctica… Today we have finally gathered in full force. We bought everything we needed. Three times we got caught in the rain, two times we were almost blown away by a hurricane and miraculously did not get burned – that is, we learned all the charms of the changeable weather of Punta Arenas. 

We're putting all our stuff on the plane tomorrow. And the day after tomorrow we hope to fly to Antarctica, where Volodya Kotlyar should be waiting for us. He came to the South Pole with a group today.

Happy New Year to everyone!

The guides of the 7 Summits Club Alexander Dorozhukov and Lyudmila Korobeshko.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Two groups of the 7 Summits Club met in Punta Arenas. One flew from Antarctica, the other is flying to Antarctica

Vinson. Ludmila Korobeshko, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, director of the company, from Punta Arenas (Chile): Greetings to all from the edge of the world, from Punta Arenas! Our group on Vinson (the 4th in a row in the Antarctic season) almost ... read more

Ludmila Korobeshko, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, director of the company, from Punta Arenas (Chile):

Greetings to all from the edge of the world, from Punta Arenas! Our group on Vinson (the 4th in a row in the Antarctic season) almost got together. Two more participants are due to arrive tonight. Yesterday we crossed paths with a group of Vinson-2 (PingVinson), who, due to the delay, flew out of Antarctica only the day before yesterday. We had a friendly dinner at the guide house, which we rented for the season in Punta Arenas. Lena Abramova has prepared a magical dinner for us! This was more than welcome, as all restaurants were closed due to the holidays. We listened to the stories of the members “PingVinson” about the horrors that befell them - low temperatures up to -50, winds and bad weather ... Decided to dress warmly and take more warming drinks.

Today we have already passed the first Antarctic antigen tests - everyone is healthy and cheerful. Tomorrow there will be a check of equipment, additional purchase of the necessary. The day after tomorrow we check in our luggage and hope to fly to Antarctica on December 29.

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!

Yesterday our team made a successful ascent on the summit of the Vinson Massif, in ideal weather conditions. We spent almost an hour at the top. Our descent was a little complicated by the storm that started, but everyone successfully went down to the base camp. And now we are sitting here and waiting for a plain to take us out to the Union Glacier base. Unfortunately, the weather is still non-flying. As soon as there is a window, the planes will take us out. The guides of the expedition Vova Kotlyar, Artem Rostovtsev and Nims. Hello everyone, from the White Continent!

In the morning, Union Glacier gave permission and ALE's Boeing successfully flew to Antarctica. On board a comfortable plane, there was a group of "Brothers", consisting of 5 people, which went to the Ice Continent. At the Union Glacier base, they should join with four more participants of the Vinson Massif ascent and together go skiing to the South Pole under the "Last Degree" program. Also, two participants of the expedition to the highest volcano of Antarctica, Mount Sidley, representing the 7 Summits Club, arrived in Antarctica on this flight.

In general, in the 2021/22 season, the 7 Summits Club has 4 large groups on the Vinson Massif and one group on the ski South Pole. There are 42 participants and 7 guides in total. The season is hard, after last year's break, but interesting!
