Hello!  It is Alexander Abramov from Antarctica. Today we have several significant events. It's January 9th. First, I want to congratulate Artem Rostovtsev on his next birthday! Secondly, today our team, which has already reached  South Pole and  climbed Mount  Vinson, must fly home. On the mainland, in Chile, a new team arrives, 10 people who are going on bicycles to "conquer" the South Pole.

 As long as Union Glacier has great weather, no wind. The sun shines. All is ready, things are collected. Artem Rostovtsev has already flown to the South Pole. In the morning he will go to meet our team on the transport at the point where the team will land. In General, everything is fine!

Hello dears!  There is a climbing group led by Boris Yegorov and Sasha Lastochkin. Today we climbed a multi-pitch in the vicinity of El Chalten.  We have worked out each of their roles to perfection, enjoy high-quality climbing and cool views. Of course, we celebrated it at a local restaurant. Then we are going to do tomorrow depot on the famous Paso Superior. We have 6 hours to go one way, dig a snow cave for the future and return to spend a night in the heat. Tomorrow should be good weather for climbing the Pass, then the wind starts. We plan to start the climb of Mount Fitz-Roy approximately at the beginning of next week – inshallah…
