Photos and a short report about the ascent of the second group on Ojos del Salado

Artem Rostovtsev, a guide of the 7 Summits Club:

Yesterday, a group of "Check and mate" (who called us?), all members stood on the top of Ojos Del Salado. All who went up, all got the summit. Nine persons, all together, in unison, not separately. Even some short period of acclimatization did not affect our movement to the top of the highest volcano in the world. By midnight we dropped all climbed 6900 m and have returned to Copiapo.

 Best regards from Atacama!

Hello! Here is Alexander Abramov, the expedition Ojos del Salado. Today, 28 January, our first group of 12 people reached the summit, under the leadership of three guides – Alexander Abramov, Ivan Dusharin and Victor Yershov.  12 people made the ascent on Ojos del Salado. Two – to the edge of the crater, and 10 people to the top of Ojos del Salado. You can congratulate us – it is a very good result. Maybe never as many people do not come to the top, I mean Russian, of course.

Waiting for tomorrow's result, for the second group, in which 12 people too must climb the summit. Weather, it is strange, is good. But let's see what happens on the descent.

 

 We are almost done, tomorrow we go to sea. In Copiapo. Bye!

Here we live and spend a night. Now we are preparing dinner, before that, we had a big lunch. Overall, the resort really is. But it is cold at this resort, Argentina. Deceive us. Tomorrow we will go to Colera, and far -  as God wills. Keep your fingers cross for us. Wish us luck!

  Hello, Seven Summits! Here Atacama says,  by voice of Artem     Rostovtsev. We have a second day standing at Laguna Verde.  And we made two acclimatization outings. Yesterday we went to the slopes of the mountain Mulas Muertas... Today we had an amazing rise to the top of Mount San Francisco. Weather, pah-pah-pah, is getting better. Wind is calmer.

Yesterday we had a tornado swept through the camp.  It took a camera, broke the tripod and damaged the camera.

And even the wind was trying to destroy our tent-dining room. Lucky there were people inside. We kept it and even quickly repaired a damaged racks.

As for people conditions, all are doing well.

Tomorrow on the program we moved to the camp Atacama, on 5300.  And again, we act together with our first group of Alex Abramov, traveling through the Atacama.  The objectives are the same as ours - Ojos del Salado.

Hi to all, from hot and dry Atacama!

Everyone, good evening! This is Vladimir Kotlyar, Valeriy Myasoedov and the "How to catch a raccoon" group. Raccoon we have not yet caught one, but went up to Nido de Condores. It's height is about five and a half thousand metres above sea level. Here we have a small encampment of three tents, our own, and we live for two people in each tent. Today we will have the first high-altitude overnight stay for acclimatization. Tomorrow we plan the descent back to the base camp. So far, we're doing the classic "climbing saw" acclimatization.

We already ate tight, ate lunch and dinner, very nice. Fed and happy we went to the tents. Outside we have frost and the sunset.  A very beautiful sunset. We say Hello to everyone at Home!

Bye!  Being In touch!

 Trekking to Everest base camp – what could be simpler? Well, what is there to write? What are the secrets to open in the space, trampled by millions of feet? What unprecedented to put photos of the places where all views captured thousands of times? Yes, winter conditions make this route more freely, and instead of a great number of tourists on the trails there are separate groups. The weather becoming clearer, the air more transparent, the mercury in the thermometer shrinks and creeps down, but the essence consists in the fact that it is the most popular and isogeny route in the Himalayas, remains the same.

 For me, this was the fifth trekking in the Himalayas. I have to admit that the grandiose types I've had the opportunity to see other parts of Nepal, though a gigantic wall of Lhotse-Nuptse live makes a lasting impression, despite the fact that its outlines painfully familiar after hundreds a long time before-seen photos. And the view from Kalapathar is also amazing. We were surprised by the weather, presenting a myriad of crystal clear days without a cloud in the sky day and night. Of course, not without snow, which, it seems, wore an official event, purely for show and filling the statistics of precipitation, which in January, although minimal, but still not zero…

Hello! Alexander Abramov from the expedition Ojos del Salado. Today our first group of 18 people arrived in probably the most beautiful place of the Atacama desert, Laguna Verde. For this we had to package the whole camp at Laguna Rosa, to say goodbye to the flamingos. And then two and a half hours we were traveling by car on a very dusty road. Thank God, no one wheel is broke. And here we are at Laguna Verde.

Here our advance team has already put us in large tents Red Fox, four by six, the dining room and the same... for the kitchen.

We brought everything, we have a huge amount of food, water, gas. We currently employ three chefs. Anyway, all is well. Tomorrow we will begin the program in Laguna Verde.

 Everyone feels so good. The height is almost four and a half thousand meters.

Bye!
