Today, two groups of the 7 Summits Club with guides Alexander Dorojukov and Dmitry Semenov spent a busy and interesting day. At morning participants and guides started climbing along the scenic path to the Ai Cafe, which is located on the slopes of Mount Cheget. Lunch was arranged in the cafe, after which the groups went down the valley.  And then they also went to the "Glade of Narzans". The weather forecast did not come true, the promised rain did not go. But the fog and low clouds gave a special charm to a small trip.

Hello! Today our supergroup "Real Group" made an ascent on Mount Elbrus. It was a day that we will remember for a long time. Elbrus tested us not for strength, but for accuracy. In the first part of our journey, we moved like blind kittens. But experience and a powerful flashlight did their job, we went to the Saddle between the two Summits. After a short rest and a light snack, we continued on our way and in an hour and a half reached the highest point, the Western peak of Mount Elbrus.

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Dmitry Semenov reports from Argentina:

Greetings from the slopes of Aconcagua from the Mañana group!  Yesterday, our small but very friendly team, at 5 o'clock in the morning, went to storm the summit of Aconcagua (6962m). I would like to say that the weather all the days before the ascent was not for us, constant snowfalls did not contribute to a successful ascent.  And we felt it in full, at an altitude of 6400m at the beginning of the traverse. Winter snow, dry is very good for skiing, but not as for walking. There were three groups of us on this site, guys from Florida and two climbers from Mexico. In the middle of the traverse, only the Mexicans and we continued to fight. The most difficult climbing started after a place called La Cueva or cave. Where there was a stone scree, now a snowfield lay in front of us, the height of the snow in places reached the chest. The guys from Mexico and I joined forces and started trampling. Having reached the height of 6800, the Mexicans turned around, we continued climbing. But after an hour, it became clear that we would not reach our goal. We had to turn around. We were returning, already in the snowfall.  Valery was waiting for us in our assault camp with hot tea, thank you so much for that! Now we are in the base camp, warm and cozy, making plans for a rematch.

New Year greetings, from the slopes of Aconcagua!  Today our Mañana group is the third day on the route. We arrived at the base camp Plaza de Mulas (4300m.) Until today, Aconcagua seemed to me to be a very windy, dusty and hot mountain.  But today, on New Year's Eve, we had snow along the route, and in the base camp we were greeted by real winter. The group coped with the task perfectly. Tomorrow in the New Year we will have a day of rest. Special thanks to our Valerio, for the excellent tea that warmed us up and cheered us up. Happy New Year to everyone!!!  Happiness, success, health and a peaceful sky in the New Year!!! See you in the mountains!
