Hello! Alexander Abramov, from the expedition to the summit of Ojos del Salado ... Today there was a hard night full of hallucinations ... that we looked at night ...

Alex Abramov: Hello! Our team is now in the camp Tejos, at an altitude of 5800 meters. Here we come to the very strong wind. The actual wind at the top, according to the forecast, more than 100 kilometers per hour. We on the trail, I think it was 50-60 .
