Sergey Avtomonov, Guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Argentina:

News from the Bezbabos group from sunny Argentina! Today we passed the PCR tests, no one "got pregnant" and we are ready to enter the Aconcagua National Park!!! We checked the equipment and went shopping to buy the missing little things, of which there are always a lot. It turned out that practically nothing works here on Sunday, and therefore the search for small things has become a much more interesting quest! Even the payment of permits became more difficult due to the fact that it was possible to pay only in one place - somewhere in the other end of the city.  The guides of the 7 Summits Club Sergey Avtomonov and Dmitry Semenov were with you!

Yesterday, the 7 Summits Club welcomed our friends famous explorer Fyodor Konyukhov and his son Oscar Konyukhov. And we have now amazing news! In August, Fyodor goes on Kazbek with our 7 Summits Club and with his friends. You can join, but upon prior request. Vladimir Kotlyar has already applied for the role of a guide in this group and has been previously approved.

We discussed the possible participation of the Russian team under the leadership of Fyodor Konyukhov in the Jules Verne Cup (the fastest prestigious sailing race, you need to go around the World in less than 80 days). We will jointly look for finances and assemble a team.

Fyodor blessed Volodya Kotlyar and Alex Abramov for the fulfillment of the project "14 eight-thousandth". He believes that this project is very important for raising the prestige of Russia. After all, no Russian climber has done this project yet. Sergey Bogomolov is the closest (13 out of 14). Everyone got a tremendous boost of energy. Fyodor Konyukhov is very inspiring!

And also we received an invitation to the exhibition of paintings by Fyodor Konyukhov "Journey of a Lifetime" from February 3 at the Zurab Tsereteli Gallery.

Greetings from the Aconcagua Base Camp! The Nosotros group rested today before going to the upper camps. The night wind blew away two more tents.   We replaced them with new ones.  It seems like it was the last wind and the weather is improving further.  We have passed a medical examination certifying that everyone can go climbing!   We collected all the remaining things for the summit assault. We walked around the neighborhood just to stay awake. Once again, we double-checked the climbing plan and the weather forecast for the coming days.  Then the forecast can be found only by radio. We plan to go up to the Nido De Condores high-altitude camp tomorrow and spend the night there. Then go up to the Kolera assault camp for acclimatization and spend the night again in Nido, to consolidate acclimatization. And the very next day we go out to the assault camp and then to the top. Good luck to us and the weather!  Guides Sergey Avtomonov, Nikita Slotin and Dmitry Semenov.

Alexander Brychkin, participant of the Vinson Massif ascent: The impossible is possible! At the edge of the earth, on the base of Union Glacier Antartica, I met our author - a great mountaineer and a wonderful person, Nirmal Purja, or simply Nims. He led a group with an Arab princess on the Vinson Massif and the South Pole.  We were also at the summit, but we missed each other by just a few days. It was easier for us because we had better weather.

Nims climbed all 14 eight-thousandths in 6 months, which was previously considered categorically impossible.

  From the notes of one of the participants of the Antarctic program of the 7 Summits Club Alexander Brychkin.  Alexander is one of the leading publishers and distributors of books in Russia.  It was only thanks to him that the translation of the book of Nims came out very quickly in our country.

Boris Egorov, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Mexico:

Long-awaited news from Mexico. Yesterday at two o'clock in the afternoon our team climbed the last rope of the huge wall, it is called El Gigante.  It was an incredible adventure! Three and a half days of continuous vertical movement, three nights suspended on inflatable platforms. There were practically no places on our route where you could at least stand, they were hanging in safety systems all the time. The rock is very wild, there is no one around, we have not seen a soul during the entire ascent. But it turned out to be absolutely detached from everything in the world, there were only us, the wall and our multi-kilogram trunks, which we dragged up after us. There are only a few such ascents in the world, and even more so in such exotic places. (Even just to get under the wall, we needed local guides with machetes). Of course, this is not our first rock adventure with Alexey and Zhenya, but we are experiencing such difficulty and danger for the first time. And such an event will be all the more memorable. Guides Boris Egorov and Vladimir Murzaev.

Aloha, the 7 Summits Club! This is Vladimir Kotlyar and a group of climbers on the highest point of Antarctica, the Vinson Massif. As you already know, we reached to the top yesterday. All the participants have ascended, which they are very happy about. Today we went down to the base camp. We pitched tents, had a delicious meal, drank a little. We did another PCR test, well, this is already the reality of our trips and travels. And, in general, we had a good time.  We are preparing to fly to Union. I hope he will be here soon. But! Having learned from the experience of past expeditions, I did not allow us to drink all the available liquids in stock today. And we decided to divide them into four days. So as not to sit and not get bored waiting for the plane. But who knows, maybe the plane will be quite soon.  In general, everything is cool ... We send you warm hugs, strong handshakes from here, from Antarctica! The season can be considered over.
