Boris Yegorov, guide of the  7 Summits Club from Patagonia:

Hello dears! This is the guides Boris Yegorov and Sasha Lastochkin. Yesterday we made an attempt to climb to the top of Mount Fitz Roy.  At first everything went well. We came in the dark under the start point to the shoulder.  At first there were steep snow and ice, we're through with it.  But as soon as we came out under the wall, towards us the hurricane blew, we were almost blown from the pass. We wanted to climb, but with such wind and cold it was too much for us. We turned back. We got down without a problem. But everyone is happy, made the most, to turn in time it is great art!

On January 6, a group of the 7 Summits Club successfully climbed to the top of Vinson Massif, the highest peak of Antarctica. The President of the 7 Summits Club Alexander Abramov led the assault. For him, this climb has been eighteenth on  Mount Vinson. The 7 Summits Club has been organizing ascent programs in Antarctica since 2004. The second guide was Artem Rostovtsev, for whom it is the second Antarctic season. The ascent was very difficult.  Due to delays in the arrival of the second part of the group, the acclimatization schedule was not possible. The decisive assault takes 12 hours. But everything ended well.
