Greetings from the Vinson Massif Assault Camp.  We came down here after conquering the peak. We climbed to the top, as planned, slowly, admiring the beauty. The weather allowed it to be done. All team members have reached the highest point of Antarctica. We stayed there for more than an hour, took pictures, even took a photo topless. Tomorrow we are all going down to the base camp and we will wait for the weather to fly back to the Union Glacier. Huge greetings from the freshly baked climbers on the Vinson Massif!

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Artem Rostovtsev reports from Tierra del Fuego:

 Greetings from the island of Tierra del Fuego! Our sudden exploration of these areas for future programs is coming to an end. We have already managed to drive more than 2000 km, all roads to the end. To go and run for a hundred kilometers, it's a pity we didn't take a kayak, more locations would be available. Undeterred animals and birds, beautiful untouched views around: mountains, forests, lakes, islands, straits – there was everything. There are plans to get to higher mountains covered with glaciers. This is the next time, but very soon. Guides Artem Rostovtsev and Lena Abramova.

Artem Rostovtsev, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Nepal:

Greetings to all from the group "Touching Everest"! It is all over, almost, except for a small nuance – the participants are waiting for a helicopter to fly to Kathmandu. And the helicopter is waiting for good weather, and the weather is not promised today. Yesterday we descended from the second high-altitude camp to the base camp without much difficulty. The burning sun and accumulated fatigue made it a little difficult to enjoy a walk along the majestic. And today all people are already at a low start towards big cities. Except for the guide, who goes up again at night.

Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Nepal:

Over the past two days, the group "Touching Everest" has climbed from the base camp to the second high-altitude camp at an altitude of 6400m. Everyone passed the baptism of the Khumbu icefall steadfastly, they were almost not afraid. The move from the first high-altitude camp to the second was planned with the support of additional oxygen, but the group decided to test themselves and pass it without doping. We coped perfectly, although in the first part of the route strong gusts of wind were a little disturbing. Tonight, the participants will have the opportunity to restore their strength with oxygen before tomorrow's decisive exit to 7100 m.

Artem Rostovtsev, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Antarctica: Hello, Seven Summits! Antarctica is on the line. We are at the Vinson Base camp now. 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!

Artem Rostovtsev, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Antarctica: Hello, Seven Summits! Antarctica is broadcasting. We are at the slopes of the Vinson Massif, or rather, an assault  camp. Today we have climbed up the High camp. We are trying to jump into the last weather window for the near future.  They promise not a strong wind tomorrow. Therefore, early tomorrow morning we plan to go to the summit. Today everyone ascended much faster than last time. With a better state of health, it feels like they have acclimatized. And after that we had time to rest. So if the weather doesn't surprise us, we should be able to make the summit tomorrow. Nims with his team decided to do it a little differently. His plan is to leave the Low Camp right away at night.  And go to the summit. It was not possible to convince him join us. In general, we have two different options tomorrow we will go to the top. Greetings again from the Antarctic guides Tema, Volodya and Nims!
