In the program "Seven volcanoes" there is an absolutely definite main mountain. This is Mount Sidley. The most remote volcano from civilization, ascents on which are not organized every year.  And no more than one group per season. In January 2022, the group of climbers will be headed by the director of the 7 Summits Club, the incomparable Lyudmila Korobeshko, who will "close" the Seven Volcanoes program. As a rule, all applications for a trip to Antarctica stop being accepted on September 1. Then you can only hope for someone's cancelation. Now is such a case! The lucky one is waiting for a completely unusual journey, the adventure of whole life, and even in a wonderful company.

 

 January 6 - January 21. Guide: Lyudmila Korobeshko

 Cost:$60,990.

Boris Egorov, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Greece:

Hello everyone!  For two days, our team climbed in one of the most beautiful places in Greece called Meteora. There are huge pillars about 300 meters high, some of them are occupied by active monasteries. This whole natural and man-made complex is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The rock is a conglomerate, and quite fragile, it is necessary to climb carefully, since almost any stone can, if desired, simply be removed from the wall. An additional difficulty is that the belay on bolts is quite rare (5-6 meters between the points) and you can additionally belay only in rare crevices or by throwing loops on all the same protruding unreliable stones.

We made 3 climbs, and I managed to make one parachute jump from one of the walls.
