The guide of the 7 Summits Club Artem Rostovtsev reports from Argentina:

Today the expedition of our small team began to the highest peak of South America, Aconcagua, and then to the highest volcano of the same continent, Ojos del Salado. The latter, by the way, is the second highest peak in South America. We are already at the entrance to the National Park. And the expedition began, of course, a little earlier, even late last night we gathered as a team in the city of Mendoza. There wasn't much time for steaks and malbec, but we managed. Unexpectedly, in parallel with us, a group starts on Aconcagua with the guides of the 7 Summits Club Dmitry Semenov and Alexander Dorojukov. We will be together for a while and with similar news.

 

 

By the way, Karl Egloff, the star of high-speed ascents, is running away to the mountain tonight, really running away. The goal is simple - from the gates of the park to the top of Aconcagua and back in 11 hours. He can.

Director of the 7 Summits Club Lyudmila Korobeshko reports from Chile:

January 14. Greetings to all from Atacama, Chile, from the Papas Bravas group! Today we had a day of rest and excursions around Copiapo. We visited the central square of the city - Plaza de Armas - all in greenery, flowers, palm trees and pepper trees and with a statue of Juno on four condors in the center.

We visited the cathedral, went to supermarkets, visited the beautiful San Francisco Church (in honor of our recent ascent to the top of San Francisco) and the Atacama Museum of Local Lore. The museum is extremely interesting - with stuffed cougars (we realized that one of them recently came to our camp), condors, armadillos and other animals. We learned a story about how in 2010 33 miners were buried in the mine under the rubble for more than 2 months, but in the end they were all rescued. We found a wonderful courtyard with cacti and the best coffee in Copiapo. And in the evening we even visited the casino (partially).

Tomorrow morning we return to Atacama, to our camp on Laguna Verde.  And at night we plan to storm the volcano Ojos del Salado.

Director of the 7 Summits Club Lyudmila Korobeshko reports from Chile:

13th of January.  Greetings to all from Atacama, Chile, from the Papas Bravas group and congratulations on the Old New Year! We haven't been in touch for two days, since yesterday we climbed to the highest mountain shelter in the world at an altitude of 5900m - Tejos refuge. The road there is a separate song. Not everyone manages to drive up the steep slopes of Ojos, but we did it. We set up tents near the refuge and went higher - to 6200 for acclimatization. Going down to the Tejos, we met a large group of Lucky People who were singing songs merrily.

The night in tents at 5900 was quite successful. In the morning, however, we woke up under a layer of frost. We drank coffee, went down to Laguna Verde (4300), where we met Artem Rostovtsev, who had just arrived from Antarctica on an urgent call from Alex Abramov. We had breakfast with him and went on vacation to Copiapo. The assault on the summit is scheduled for the night of January 15-16. While we rest and gain strength.

Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club:

The season in Antarctica has ended. It was not the longest for the 7 Summits Club, but as always productive. All the participants and guides managed to stand on the top of the Vinson massif. And the final group was lucky to be on the summit in quiet sunny windless weather, so the predicted -32 felt like -10. Now everyone has already gone home, the expedition equipment has been checked, repaired, preserved and is waiting for the next season. We invite everyone! Everyone who is ready.

The guide of the 7 Summits  Club Andrey Berezin reports from Argentina:

Buenos Dias! After a day of rest and a medical examination, the team of "Argentina one love" went for an acclimatization overnight at Nido de Condores. In the afternoon, the weather turned bad and they went out to the camp in bad weather.  We settled in tents two by two, ate buckwheat porridge for dinner, then went to sleep in tents. So to speak, to get a high-altitude experience. At night, the wind was gusting more than 40 km/h. In the morning, we quickly gathered, shared our impressions of the overnight stay, had breakfast and went down to the Mulas. Snow fell decently overnight. In places it was above the knee. As a result, we successfully completed the acclimatization exit, tomorrow we rest and prepare for the summit assault. The guides of the group are Andrey Berezin and Viktor Volodin.

Today, the team "Lucky Ones" went by car to the highest mountain refuge in the world "Tejas", which is located at an altitude of 5800m on the slopes of Ojos del Salado. And made an acclimatization rotation to 6200m on the slopes of Ojos. Everyone was amazed by the road to Tejas, as it has been difficult to pass lately and only the super drivers of the 7 Summits Club can drive it. The mountain has shown its scale. And this morning, participant Fedor and guide Mario went to storm the summit. Now there is waist-deep snow there, so they took shovels to dig a trench.

Then - on foot and with crampons. At the beginning of the journey, we even had to overcome an obstacle in the form of calgaspores. We did it! At about 15.30 in Chile, we stood at the top of our first six-thousandth. Tomorrow we arrange a day of rest - complete relaxation with spa elements.

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.

Midnight rise, "hard night eating", everyone is grumbling a little ... The group " Akukaracha" of the 7 Summits Club begins night preparation ... the exit was scheduled for 00-00! We reached Stella Point (5756 m) right cheerfully, at 5-30 we were on the crater! A little tea and then pole pole…

At 7-00, the whole group and guides Sergey Avtomonov and Evgeny Fedyunin were at the top of Uhuru Peak 5895 m. Unlike the New Year's fuss, it was possible to take a picture and send greetings home! Only one participant set herself a high-altitude threshold of 4700, you can't argue with her health! By 9-30 we went down to the Kosovo assault camp, had a short nap, lunch, and today we need to drop another kilometer of altitude. We go further, to the Milenium camp 3800 m.
