Seven Summits, hello! This is Dima Ermakov from Union Glacier. Last night, as I said, we came here. I said goodbye to Semyon Deyak and Lesha Boutin, who flew to the mainland… They are already in Punta Arenas. Now we are waiting for the team from Mt.Sidley. Liana Chabdarova that successfully climbed the highest volcano of Antarctica, should join our group. Therefore, we have an opportunity to live a little in comfort... Once Liana arrive, we fly out to the side of Vinson to start our program. Everything is fine, all in a good mood. Best regards! Dima Ermakov.

Chile – it is an amazing country of 1000 volcanoes and thousands of lakes, glaciers and deserts... In Chile, there is 15 regions, all lovely and picturesque. Today I want to show you just one - Atacama ...

Often travelers, who come to climb Ojos, in a hurry do not have time to see this beauty.

All (awesome) photos Atacama here >>>>>>>

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well, now a few words about the ascent ofOjos del Salado.... It's time ...

No special difficulties, most importantly, as always - be lucky with the weather. Well, no need to rush - 7000 meters yet – a need of acclimatization has not been canceled ...

I had hoped to acclimatize on Orizaba, but between the two mountains I got 14 days. A lot, too many. But I could not resist and tried to start climb on top of Ojos immediately after arrival. I had a luck, but... not right!

 

 

 

We had a picnic with a guide Mario first right into the crater, well then moved to the top, in total spending on the summit more than three hours. Good weather and lack of wind contributed to this. But in the end, the desire to go down to the restaurant and wash out to sea and had overpowered ...

Oh yes, our car was not able to climb up to 5800 meters, so we lugged all by yourself from the 5200 and back. From Copiapo to Copiapo we spent 6 days for the ascent ...

Along the way I lost the camera. Then it was found, but returned me only flash card with photos. Sorry for the camera, which was on Everest, South Pole, and many other points ...

But I'm happy, now I have something to show you ..

Take care of yourself! Good luck in the mountains. Vitaly S.

I was with Israel Breton, who of his 37 years he goes to Orizaba 18 years .. What can I say .. For most physically fit people the ascent under such leadership will not be difficult .. We did 4.5 hours to the top and with the first rays of the sun, I took out the camera.

Do not miss this moment when you could see a huge shadow of the mountain on top of which you are pleased to stand .. For some reason I always do not wish to go from the top … first long climb, climb, and then finish ! Striking feeling .. such pacification and then .. Especially on Everest struck it and I remember - all fussed with some flags, photographed "in memory " , although most in this situation rarely generally get at least some good shots , and I just stood there and watched the sunrise over the Earth, trying to understand where I remember what I saw .. And it was so nice and peaceful ..

So it was the same on Orizaba– quite met the sun, made some jump for pictures and we had to go down ..

A part of workers, guides and friends of the Seven Summits Club held in a festive evening on December 24 at the restaurant Chalet (Kant). It was dedicated to celebrating the New Year. Results of the outgoing year were found to be successful, it was an eventful year and informative.

The main hero of the year was Olga Rumyantseva, she made the 7 Volcanoes Program solo, on one year and without interrupting the production process. Alexander Abramov counted his 19 climbed summits. Wow! A good year - we decided to make it a tradition . That is, in the future to keep the pace and scope. Health to all ! Peace and prosperity !

Guide of the 7 Summits Club Alexander Lastochkin: Hello! The day before yesterday in the evening we reached Austrian Hut, it is a hut which is assault camp for an exit toMount Kenya. Having conferred, we made the decision to go with light baggage. Earlier we assumed to spend the night in a hut at top of Nelion. As a result, in difficult weather conditions, the group reached peak Nelion, to one o'clock in the afternoon. Where, having looked round on, we understood, we made the decision on descent. Because in such weather it is impossible to risk. Safely now we finished descent and today already we move forward towards an exit from national park.
