Hello! This is Alexander Abramov from Antarctica. Yesterday, a new group arrived: Roman, Michail, Cyril and our Polish friend Janusz. Now our friendly company of five plans how to climb Vinson Massif. As you know from previous reports, the weather this year is mostly bad. Now we have at Vinson Massif again delayed flights. Those groups that descended from the Summit of Mount Vinson are sitting in the base camp, waiting for departure at Union Glacier. Ilyushin flew away, which was 29th. All teams who want to climb the Vinson Massif had come with it, stay and wait for the flight to the base camp.

Here we have such situation. In principle, the situation is good, because we still have time enough to climb ... So, all good-bye! And until we meet again in the air!

Posted by Ludmila Korobeshko from an expedition to Ecuador:

December 29th. We stayed for a night at a hacienda in 3600 in the midst of fields. We left at 7 am on the climb to fivethousander Ilinitsa Norte. The climb up was 1,200 meters. The weather was cold and quite windy. The upper part of the route is on the rocks, in some places difficult. Before we reached the summit we were not all. But we have raised the flag of the Club at the top Ilinitsa Norte 5140 meters!

Going down in our hacienda, we drank fresh milk, lit fireplace and a Cuban cigar, and discussed plans for the future.

Tomorrow. December 30 we move to a shelter at an altitude of 4640 meters. We will prepare for the climb on the Mount of Cayambe at New Year's Eve.
