Greetings from the slopes of Kilimanjaro from the Mambo team! Today we made a long and difficult trek to the Baranko camp. In the morning, we climbed to the Lava Tower camp, gaining 700 meters and reaching an altitude of 4,600. We had lunch there, after which we continued our journey and went down to the Baranko camp.
Despite the fact that it was a hard day, it was pleased with the beautiful views, the change of natural belts, beautiful stone structures made of lava and, of course, unusual plants senecia.
We were lucky with the weather. A little rain fell while we were having lunch and were in the tent. And on the descent, the sky cleared so that we saw the grandiose wall of Kilimanjaro peak.

Lyudmila Korobeshko, a guide and director of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Chile:
Greetings from the edge of the world from Punta Arenas, Chile! Both our expeditions to the highest points of Antarctica, Sidley and Vinson, are assembled! Yesterday, the smartest members managed to drive to the legendary national park Torres del Paine Park and admire the famous peaks, lakes with icebergs and met wild exotic animals and birds. Those who arrived yesterday managed to run around the entire Punta Arenas and buy everything necessary for the flight to Antarctica. And we also attended the ALE briefing, got the tips and watched a cool movie about what awaits us in Antarctica. And most importantly, we performed an important rite for good luck - we kissed the native's foot at the monument to Magellan in the central square.
Today we are handing over our things and tomorrow, according to the plan, we will fly to Union Glacier, where Artem Rostovtsev, who successfully reached the South Pole with the group yesterday, should be waiting for us! See you soon!
The head of the expedition to Sidley is Lyudmila Korobeshko.

Olga Rumyantseva, a guide of the 7 SummitsClub, reports from Tanzania:
Greetings from the Mamba group from the slopes of Kilimanjaro! Today was a difficult but wonderful day for us. Today we reached the Shira Cave camp at an altitude of 3900 meters. We went through several climatic zones, starting the ascent in the forest, where the trees are densely covered with moss, and ended up in an area almost devoid of vegetation.
Along the way, we had to climb over rocks, overcome streams and small rock walls. After arriving at the camp and having a little rest, we walked to the cave. After that, a ceremony was held to introduce the team to songs and dances. And the weather pampered us today. We managed to dry all the things that got wet yesterday and admire the beautiful views.

Andrey Berezin, the guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Argentina:
Buenos Dias! We haven't been in touch for several days. So, in order.
The end of December in Aconcagua is still the beginning of the season, and the weather is not stable yet, with strong winds. According to the forecast, there will be a strong wind on the planned day of the ascent, and we decided to move the assault to a spare day.

We climbed the Nido de Condores. We have a tent camp there, with a comfortable dining room. We spent the night. The wind constantly shook the tents. In the morning, closer to lunch, we went up to the camp Berlin. This is a cozy camp, where there was no one except our tents. Plus, the rock was blocking us from the west wind. We settled in tents.

By four in the morning, the wind began to subside. They went out to the summit bid. We reached the traverse in 3 hours, then there was a section with a strong wind. Fortunately, the wind is at your back, and not for long. Then the climb to the Cave began along the sypukha. We took a deep breath in the Cave, ate and moved to the top. Three more hours on rocks and snow, and here is the summit, where surprisingly it was almost calm. Memorable photos and videos, mutual congratulations. Then we descend to our camp Berlin. Dinner, overnight and descent to the Plaza de Mulas. Where we had a festive lunch and the awarding of medals to all participants. The guides of the Brain Storm group are Andrey Berezin, Sergey Avtomonov and Valery Myasoedov.

Boris Egorov, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Patagonia:
Hello everyone! Today is a sunny day in Patagonia again and we decided to entertain ourselves with bouldering (rock climbing) in a very beautiful, magical forest. We found special mattresses for belay, bought pies, cooked a mate and spent several hours on the rocks. When you are in the process of climbing like this, it may seem that you are lying on the mattress more than you are moving. But in fact, the body gets very tired of the extreme movements that have to be performed in order to make such micro-ascents. And this is a wonderful finger training and ninja climbing skills.


And, of course, the incredible views of our destination - Mount Fitzroy!

 


This area around the town of El Chalten is famous for its climbing stones. Of course, there is classical rock climbing here, but first of all it is a bouldering area where all local climbers come for the summer, and in February an international festival is even held.
In the evening, we continued our endless conversations about the weather and made plans. And for tomorrow we decided to look at our condition: arrange a light trekking the next day or climb the wall again. In any case, we will not be bored and we will spend our time usefully. Guides Boris Egorov and Vladimir Murzaev.

Olga Rumyantseva, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Tanzania:
Hello everyone from Tanzania! Today our group, which decided to call itself Mamba, left the hotel in the morning and went to the beginning of the climb to Kilimanjaro. After a little preparation, we started climbing through the amazing jungle, where monkeys were jumping.
Our climb was complicated by a gushing torrential rain. We waited out the main streams, but we had to walk in the rain most of the way anyway. Despite this, everyone still liked the very beautiful forest. We hope to be able to dry tomorrow.

Greetings from the edge of the world - from Punta Arenas! Today, participants of two Antarctic expeditions - to Vinson and Sidley - finally began to gather here.
In the morning, the most active part arrived - those who are closing the Seven Volcanoes project. We went straight from the airport to watch the ships, then checked the equipment and then the guys rushed to Fort Bulnes (a historical place, the southernmost Chilean settlement once).

Lyudmila Korobeshko, a guide and director of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Chile:

Greetings from the edge of the world from the southernmost mainland city of the world - Punta Arenas!
On December 24, Lena Abramova and I flew to Punta Arenas from different parts of the world and immediately rushed to buy everything necessary for Antarctica, since Christmas was coming. And on Christmas Day, absolutely everything is closed here.
By the evening,
we exhaled and even managed to celebrate the upcoming holiday with seafood delicacies, of which there are many. We took crab porridge.
On December 25, we reviewed and repacked the purchased items, and in the evening we went to visit our old friends, the IL76 pilots. For many years, it was the only aircraft that brought both equipment and people to Antarctica. It was very spectacular and romantic - flying to Il76 and landing it on the ice!
Now
it imported by Boeing, and IL is used only for cargo transportation.
The participants of our Sidley and Vinson programs are already starting to arrive tomorrow.

Hello, Seven Summits! This is Artem Rostovtsev. We are currently in Antarctica, the expedition "The last degree to the South Pole". We are already less than a degree from the pole. Four days have passed. We are very lucky with the weather. Well, everything, of course, is monotonous around — a white desert. But so far we haven't tired to death. We are moving towards our goal, the South Pole, where we hope to be soon. We will definitely please you with news from there, with a call. Another hello to everyone from far, far away. We are 40 kilometers away from the lower exit of the axis from the globe — to the South Pole.
