At Patriot Hills met the second group of Seven Summits Club Antarctica expedition. Their goal is climbing the highest point in Antarctica - Vinson Massif (4 897 m).
Group is international.
Here are our climbers:
Victor Bobok - guide - Russia
Igor Grishkov - Russia
Andrew Filkov - Russia
Noel Hanna - Ireland
Patrick Singh - Canada
 Patrick and Noel are well known in our club on the ascent of Everest in an expedition 7 Summits Club Everest 2009.  That's where they got the idea not just to climb the highest point of Antarctica, but set a world record, after ascent having passed  on skis along the ocean more than 300 kilometers.
Now all members of the expedition arrived at the base camp of Vinson Massif where they will acclimatise.
We wish all participants good luck, good weather and the benevolence of the mountains and the icy continent.


News for 18 December.
 
Weather was excellent, warm like in Moscow, the guys acclimatized to the Base Camp and preparing the next day to move to the camp N 2.
