Nastya Kuznetsova, guide of the 7 Summits Club: news from Mexico. Today was the key day of our entire program - day assault on the highest volcano of North America, the peak of Orizaba. Today, January 3, our heroes are Vlad Moroz and Georgi Kuzmin who stood on the top. The support group has reached the height of 5200 m. Everyone is happy. Everyone got what they wanted. Although it was not easy. Initially the ascent was planned on the Northern slope of Orizaba. But, from the unfavourable state of the snow-ice slopes of the North, it was decided to make the ascent from the South. And there are nuances. There is almost no snow, but there are many talus slopes mixed with stone collapse and a protracted steep scree, with hidden ice. But, our male part of the team was able to overcome all obstacles and come out on top.

 Now the whole group is resting after the storm in the shelter Tapan and is preparing to return to Mexico.

 The ascent was great, we not only climbed to the highest free-standing mountain of the Earth, but also walked around the crater and touched the disappearing glaciers of Kilimanjaro. In total, in new year's eve, during the ascent, we spent more than 4 hours at a height of 5700-5895 meters. That  is undoubtedly due to our wonderful guides Urio and Wiesen.  They were able to acclimatized us to prepare us for this — we have not filled any symptoms of altitude sickness.

  We sang and danced at the top, drank champagne, and got just a wonderful experience and memories. We'll miss that mountain and our team consisting of 15 cute, fun and professional guys whom we called Kaka, that is, brothers.
