Nikita Slotin, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Chile:

Greetings from Chile from the group "Machines"! On January 15, at 1 a.m., the group moved out of the camp on Laguna Verde by car. At 3 a.m., the movement started from the shelter of the Tejos. 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. We're going down to the ocean today.
