A message from Victor Ershov from Aconcagua:

Hello! We spent two not the sweetest nights in the camp Nido de Condores and rose to acclimatize to camp Berlin at almost 6000m. Cold, windy, snowy... If you add mountain sickness with headache and nausea - this is about so we did! But now we have descended to the base camp, Plaza de Mulas, it's hot here and comfortable! A couple of nights, and then - only to the top!

Valeriy Myasoedov, guide of the 7 Summits Club: greetings from La Paz! Yesterday the team Genesis Extreme in tried to climb Huayna Potosi, 6081м. For many participants it was the first experience of mountain climbing, in principle. And the first experience of climbing with elements of technical mountaineering – for everyone.  The will power of  group arouse admiration: for the first time in the mountains and immediately go for 6000! Two members climbed to the top, five others reached the level of 6060 m. Only the last difficult part, the passage on the narrow edge of the ridge just before the top stopped them. In any case, this is a huge personal achievement for each of them... All are under the impression. Bolivia is a magic country!

Lyudmila Korobeshko, guide and Director of the 7 Summits Club: Hello from Ecuador! Today, the Team of Brave Guinea Pigs to 5 am cheerfully climbed to 5700m on Cotopaxi. And then we ran into avalanche-prone slope, which is already about a week no one passed. Several local guides attempted to do the trail, but soon returned, saying that the state of the slope is extremely dangerous. At any moment an avalanche could be.

In General, to the highest point, we missed 200 m.

So, we will have to come back to Ecuador! And not only on Cotopaxi!
