Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club, who returned from Antarctica: News from Antarctica. Three expeditions of the 7 Summits Club to the Vinson Massif have been successfully completed. The beginning of the season was not very friendly in the weather. This delayed us a little on the mountain, but did not prevent everyone from successfully climbing on the summit.

Lyudmila Korobeshko, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, director of the company, from Antarctica: Good afternoon! Hello everyone from Antarctica! Our group "Vinson-4" or  "7 Nations Army", a very multinational team, flew to Antarctica and immediately we were transferred to the base camp at 2200. Here we have set up our camp, now we are sorting things out, had dinner.   It's almost twelve o'clock at night, and in general, we'll be going to bed slowly. Tomorrow, according to the plan, we will make a depot. And, probably, the day after tomorrow we will move to the Low Camp. All participants feel well. However, part of our expedition in the form of three Nepalese Sherpas has not joined us yet, because they are still going Last Degree. Otherwise, everything is fine. The super-guides of the 7 Summits Club Volodya Kotlyar, who cut himself yesterday (we didn't recognize him directly), Alexander Dorojukov and Lyudmila Korobeshko are in touch. Everyone, Happy New Year!

 

 

Chimborazo was in a really bad mood. Participants of the 7 Summits Club programs were unable to climb to its top due to snowfall

News from Ecuador. Today was a responsible day - the day of the assault on the Chimborazo volcano (6310 m). It wasn't easy! A blizzard and a lot of freshly fallen snow. Nikolai Kirillov reached the height of 5800 m . Alexander Rykov went up ... read more

News from Ecuador. Today was a responsible day - the day of the assault on the Chimborazo volcano (6310 m). It wasn't easy! A blizzard and a lot of freshly fallen snow. Nikolai Kirillov reached the height of 5800 m . Alexander Rykov went up to a high-altitude camp and stopped to spend the night there. There was a heavy snowfall and no one went out on the mountain at night.

 Now everyone is already down in the valley and in a good mood they are returning to civilization.

Summit! The members of the group of the 7 Summits Club climbed Mount Kilimanjaro

A short report about todays climb from father and son Alexander and Andrey: We started from the assault camp (4600) today at 0.15. And we successfully climbed Kilimanjaro (5895 meters) at 6.17 am at the top. The guides said it was just a ... read more

A short report about today’s climb from father and son Alexander and Andrey: We started from the assault camp (4600) today at 0.15. And we successfully climbed Kilimanjaro (5895 meters) at 6.17 am at the top.  The guides said it was just a great result. We met the dawn right at the peak. From 6.30 to 7.30 we visited the glacier. I have never seen such beauty. They don't usually go to him, since no one has the strength after climbing Kilimanjaro. But, we couldn't put the Russian Mountaineering Federation to shame: we went to it and returned to the assault camp by 9.20.

Thank you to everyone who supported!  Ascent (and descent) was very difficult, and I really remembered your parting words from the manager of the 7 Summits Club! I thought it would be much easier, but the weather has made its own corrections.

The team of the 7 Summits Club "Vinson-4" gathered in Punta Arenas and came up with a name for themselves

Lyudmila Korobeshko, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, director of the company, from Punta Arenas (Chile):

Greetings to all from the edge of the world from Punta Arenas! We decided to call ourselves "7 nations army" - we counted representatives of so many countries in our group. Although Sherpas will still join us in Antarctica… Today we have finally gathered in full force. We bought everything we needed. Three times we got caught in the rain, two times we were almost blown away by a hurricane and miraculously did not get burned – that is, we learned all the charms of the changeable weather of Punta Arenas. 

We're putting all our stuff on the plane tomorrow. And the day after tomorrow we hope to fly to Antarctica, where Volodya Kotlyar should be waiting for us. He came to the South Pole with a group today.

Happy New Year to everyone!

The guides of the 7 Summits Club Alexander Dorozhukov and Lyudmila Korobeshko.

Maxim Shakirov, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Nepal: Hello everyone from Kathmandu!  It's nice to see this city filled with people, cars and scooters again! We have been trying to fly to Lukla for the second day to launch to our goal - the Everest base camp. But for now – there is non-flying weather… We believe that we will succeed in the near future. The mood and well-being of the participants is fire. We are looking forward to meeting the big mountains!

The group of the 7 Summits Club "Black caps" has completed the program, it was not possible to reach the top of Ojos del Salado due to extreme snow conditions

Nikita Slotin, guide of the 7 Summits Club from Chile: Greetings to all from Chile from the Black Caps group!  Today we have made the second attempt to climb the highest volcano in the world! But a good forecast wasn't enough and everything didn't go according to plan... We left at 22:00 for the shelter Tejos, spent as much as 4 hours because of the deep snow. Only 2:00 a.m. we went out to storm! Everything went well at first. But we had to interrupt the ascent at an altitude of 6400 meters. At this point, another group caused an avalanche. We realized that the way ahead was dangerous. There are no casualties, the avalanche passed us by! After that, we decided to go down, the mountain did not let us in again, but it taught us a lot! Now we are going to the ocean shore to rest from the snow. The participants are happy to finally return to civilization.

Ludmila Korobeshko, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, director of the company, from Punta Arenas (Chile):

Greetings to all from the edge of the world, from Punta Arenas! Our group on Vinson (the 4th in a row in the Antarctic season) almost got together. Two more participants are due to arrive tonight. Yesterday we crossed paths with a group of Vinson-2 (PingVinson), who, due to the delay, flew out of Antarctica only the day before yesterday. We had a friendly dinner at the guide house, which we rented for the season in Punta Arenas. Lena Abramova has prepared a magical dinner for us! This was more than welcome, as all restaurants were closed due to the holidays. We listened to the stories of the members “PingVinson” about the horrors that befell them - low temperatures up to -50, winds and bad weather ... Decided to dress warmly and take more warming drinks.

Today we have already passed the first Antarctic antigen tests - everyone is healthy and cheerful. Tomorrow there will be a check of equipment, additional purchase of the necessary. The day after tomorrow we check in our luggage and hope to fly to Antarctica on December 29.

Vladimir Kotlyar, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Antarctica: Aloha to the Seven Summits Club! The group going to the South Pole, guide Vladimir Kotlyar, participants Valery and Yuri Shamrilo from Belarus are in touch. We long time waited for the weather and  at last flew to the starting point. Unfortunately, due to the fact that we spent many days on the Union Glacier, we had only four days left, at most, an we shortened the program. We are not going to "the last degree", but "the last half degree". Which is also, in principle, not bad, not bad – we have already walked three kilometers and we will probably walk three or five kilometers more today. That's enough for the first day. We will set up a camp, rest, and tomorrow we will go as much as possible! We are looking for the South Pole…

The group with guides Nirmal Purja and Tashi Lakpa went on the classic route "The Last degree".

The group of the 7 Summits Club "Black caps" made an attempt to climb Ojos del Salado, but retreated due to deep snow

Nikita Slotin, guide of the 7 Summits Club from Chile: Hello to everyone from the Black caps group! We are in the driest place on Earth, the Atacama Desert! Although, judging by the snow on the mountain, you can't say that! A few days ago we settled in the Laguna Verde camp, conducted acclimatization rotation and went out to storm tonight! None of us expected knee-deep snow! For 12 hours we walked through deep and crumbly snow and at an altitude of 6400, the harsh conditions forced us to turn back... There is more and more snow on the mountain every day! Today we are resting, and continue to enjoy the views of the desert.
