Hurrah !!! Our team is at the top of Ojos del Salado! Alex Abramov, Dmitry Ginkulov, Oleg Pimenov, Irena Kharazova ... Three our members for various reasons have not reached the top. But the weather ... the wind blows constantly. We managed to find a window in the weather, we were in doubt a long time, thinking and calculating. We started late enough to avoid night frost. But now we're standing on the top… we are the first team in the last few days, which had climbed it. All other teams turned back because of the strong winds and bitter cold. That all! Our expedition to the Ojos del Salado ends successfully. The 7 Summits Club made another victory. Everybody, bye! Wait for us in Moscow!

Hello! This is Alexander Abramov with a report from the highest camp on the summit of Ojos del Salado. The altitude is about 5800 meters. Now we went up to a height of almost 6000 meters. For acclimatization. Wind has not as strong as yesterday. We plan to start at five o'clock in the morning to three hours later to be caught by the sunrise. We hope that the wind will not be as strong and as cold as in previous days, and we will be able to climb Ojos. All members feel well and fine.

That all, Goodbye! We are fine. We have enough products and water. In general, tomorrow - the day of summit bid. Bye!
