Hi, 7 Summits! This is Artyom Rostovtsev. Yesterday we miraculously flew out of Punto Arenas. Nobody believed, but unexpectedly, they gave the green light to take off. And immediately to Union Gletcher. We arrived there after midnight. It was possible to sleep, and in the morning to eat calmly. And then miraculously move to Vinson's base camp. Also, the weather was not favorable, but suddenly a weather window appeared and we were thrown to the Vinson's base camp. We are here now. Today, we calmly sorted out our things, prepared for tomorrow. We hope to go to the Low Camp. Although there are  some unfavorable news. The guys who have been working as rangers here for many years say that they saw avalanches for the first time at the slope from Low Camp to High Camp. But our plan is to move there and see with our own eyes what is there and how it is. Not looking at the rest of the teams.

Wish us good luck!

Hello everyone from Antarctica!
