 Starting December 26, in Antarctica, a Belgian mountaineer Sofie Lenaerts will work with our group as a trainee guide. This is her personal chance to become the first woman in her country to complete the Seven Summits program.

 Together with his regular life partner Stef Maginelle, Lenaerts leads the 8000 Unlimited project. Climbing both in the Alps and the eight-thousanders. Last summer, a large group of Belgian climbers of the 8000 Unlimited project climbed Lenin Peak.

 In addition to mountaineering, Sofie made many other fascinating trips: she rode South America on a motorcycle from edge to edge, made a bike ride in Asia - 2700 kilometers, flew from Mont Blanc on a paraglider ...

Record, unprecedented automobile campaign is successfully completed, we will wait for reports and the main thing – the movie. 

 

 

RD Studio: in 1820 the Russian expedition Bellingshausen and Lazarev gave the world the sixth continent. On the eve of the bicentennial of this event, we went to Antarctica to create a documentary about the brightest pages of its history. And at the same time we did something that no one else did: a unique Autonomous auto vehicle run on the ice through the Antarctic Continent! For 38 days we passed 5519 km on all-terrain vehicles "Yemelya" without refueling and replenishment of stocks on the way!

 

 

 

 

We are proud of our climber Vlad Lachkarev and congratulate him! He made it: 7+7+2!

On January 6, a group of the 7 Summits Club successfully climbed to the top of Vinson Massif, the highest peak of Antarctica. The President of the 7 Summits Club Alexander Abramov led the assault. For him, this climb has been eighteenth on  Mount Vinson. The 7 Summits Club has been organizing ascent programs in Antarctica since 2004. The second guide was Artem Rostovtsev, for whom it is the second Antarctic season. The ascent was very difficult.  Due to delays in the arrival of the second part of the group, the acclimatization schedule was not possible. The decisive assault takes 12 hours. But everything ended well.

Hello!  Abramov Alexander and Artem Rostovtsev from Antarctica. Now our team of cyclists has returned to the Union Glacier. Our journey is coming to an end. Everyone feels good and great... we'll wait for the plane to Punta-Arenas, it's scheduled to be tomorrow.

 

There Is The Pole! The team of the 7 Summits Club on bicycles arrived on the South Pole!

Hello!  Abramov Alexander from the South Pole. Today, our team on bikes  reached  the South Pole. We drove more than 15 kilometers a day and as a result became the first people in the world who conquered the South Pole on two-wheeled bicycles. We have great photos, great views of the pole, with bikes... we'll post them later.

In General, our crazy idea was realized. Everyone is very happy, despite the fact that the weather today is very bad. There was a very high risk of frostbite. The road was in fact  invisible. White snow merged, it was very, very difficult.

Well, that is all. Our mission actually ends here. We hope to fly to Union Glacier tomorrow. On the 14th our Soviet IL-76 will be able to arrive and take us.

The mood of the team is great, cheerful. All the guys make future plans for new adventures…

 

 

The team of the 7 Summits Club passed a ski part of the route to the South Pole

 Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club and guide the group, from Antarctica:

 Today we flew from Union Glacier to the region of South Pole.  We arrived at the mark of 50 km, where we were met by a ratrak (snowcat) with sledges, in which there were 13 bikes and  13 skis. Today we went skiing 15 km to the camp, which Artem set in advance (kitchen and all tents).

That is all right. It is cold, -30 degrees and wind. But members of the team say that in the North pole was much worse. Tomorrow we have 35 km by Bicycle to the Pole. Usually we go 40 minutes and then all collect and drink tea. With us there is a snowcat.

So, tomorrow we have to make a world record - to come to the South pole on two-wheeled bicycles. No one has done this before us. We're 13 people.

 

 

Artem Rostovtsev celebrates his birthday at the South Pole. And on Union Glacier, our group is waiting for the plane

Hello!  It is Alexander Abramov from Antarctica. Today we have several significant events. It's January 9th. First, I want to congratulate Artem Rostovtsev on his next birthday! Secondly, today our team, which has already reached  South Pole and  climbed Mount  Vinson, must fly home. On the mainland, in Chile, a new team arrives, 10 people who are going on bicycles to "conquer" the South Pole.

 As long as Union Glacier has great weather, no wind. The sun shines. All is ready, things are collected. Artem Rostovtsev has already flown to the South Pole. In the morning he will go to meet our team on the transport at the point where the team will land. In General, everything is fine!

The 7 Summits Club, hello!  Abramov Alexander and Artem Rostovtsev from Antarctica. Today we descended from the High camp of Vinson massif and even, despite the bad weather, we managed to fly to the base camp. We were taken on a Twin Outter plane all packed with our stuff. And now we are at the Union Glacier and, as a matter of fact, this is the end of our journey. We are waiting for IL-76 to arrive on January 9…

 Also on January 9 our new team arrives. This is the question  of setting of a world record - an achievement of the South pole on two-wheeled bicycles. This has never been done before

 All the while! We'll call again tomorrow…

Alexander Abramov from Antarctica:

  The team with guides Alex Abramov and Artem Rostovtsev climbed to the top of the Vinson Massif. We left the camp around 12 noon. It was very cold,  according the forecast - minus 28 degrees and poor visibility. But gradually the weather improved. We have a strong team. In General, in the evening we climbed to the top. It's midnight, we went down to the High camp. But as you know, it's light in Antarctica and it doesn't really matter what time you get home.

At last, you congratulate us!

Tomorrow we'll be shutting down the camps and trying to fly to Union glacier. Now the weather is non-flying. Tomorrow it promised a strong wind and snow. So we managed to summit!

 Vlad Lashkarev became the first climber from the city of Irkutsk, which finished the project "Seven summits". Also, we have two people in the team who opened this path on the "seven summits"by climbing Vinson, for them it was the first mountain. Artem Rostovtsev went for the third time to Vinson, Abramov – the seventeenth time. And with this ascent I started my project "Seven summits in seven months". While everything turns out, the first mountain is made... That is all!  Bye!

 

 

 

 

The team of the 7 Summits Club flew to the base camp Vinson and immediately went on the route

Hello!  Alexander Abramov and Artem Rostovtsev from Antarctica.

 Finally, a miracle happened, and we were taken to the base camp of the Vinson Massive. It happened at 9 am. ... Immediately we took on the shoulders of all our goods and dragged it to the Low camp, which is at an altitude of 2800 meters. It was very difficult. Of course, we do not have enough acclimatization. And that's why tomorrow we'll be spending the night here at 2800. Day after tomorrow we hope to move already in the advance camp (High camp) for the assault.

 Everyone is in a good mood, everyone is healthy. In General, everything is fine, thank God.

 We wish  all a happy New Year !
