Greetings from the Aconcagua Base Camp! The Nosotros group rested today before going to the upper camps. The night wind blew away two more tents.   We replaced them with new ones.  It seems like it was the last wind and the weather is improving further.  We have passed a medical examination certifying that everyone can go climbing!   We collected all the remaining things for the summit assault. We walked around the neighborhood just to stay awake. Once again, we double-checked the climbing plan and the weather forecast for the coming days.  Then the forecast can be found only by radio. We plan to go up to the Nido De Condores high-altitude camp tomorrow and spend the night there. Then go up to the Kolera assault camp for acclimatization and spend the night again in Nido, to consolidate acclimatization. And the very next day we go out to the assault camp and then to the top. Good luck to us and the weather!  Guides Sergey Avtomonov, Nikita Slotin and Dmitry Semenov.

The 7 Summits Club Guide Sergey Avtomonov, from Argentina:

The group of the 7 Summits Club "Nosotros" is in touch.  Today we went down to the Plaza de Mulas base camp from the Nido De Condores camp. We spent a night there for acclimatization. It turned out that the wind was weaker in the upper camp than in the base camp. While we were spending the night upstairs, several more tents were blown away by the wind in our base camp. Now we are sorting things out and making plans for the next few days. We will wait out the bad weather and move up!  So far, the forecast promises good weather for the day of our ascent. Tomorrow will be a day of rest. And then we go out to climb. The guides of the group are Dmitry Semenov, Nikita Slotin and Sergey Avtomonov.

Alexander Brychkin, participant of the Vinson Massif ascent: The impossible is possible! At the edge of the earth, on the base of Union Glacier Antartica, I met our author - a great mountaineer and a wonderful person, Nirmal Purja, or simply Nims. He led a group with an Arab princess on the Vinson Massif and the South Pole.  We were also at the summit, but we missed each other by just a few days. It was easier for us because we had better weather.

Nims climbed all 14 eight-thousandths in 6 months, which was previously considered categorically impossible.

  From the notes of one of the participants of the Antarctic program of the 7 Summits Club Alexander Brychkin.  Alexander is one of the leading publishers and distributors of books in Russia.  It was only thanks to him that the translation of the book of Nims came out very quickly in our country.

We got up before dawn to hand over the bags that were being transported on mules. Then there was a light breakfast and we went towards the Plaza de Mulas. At first, everyone was freezing, then the sun came out, and we started to burn in the sun that came out. All day we walked to the base camp.  We were tired, but the whole team reached it in 9 hours.  Everyone is happy, fed by the excellent cooks of the camp, placed one by one in tents and now we are resting before the next day.

Boris Egorov, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Mexico:

Long-awaited news from Mexico. Yesterday at two o'clock in the afternoon our team climbed the last rope of the huge wall, it is called El Gigante.  It was an incredible adventure! Three and a half days of continuous vertical movement, three nights suspended on inflatable platforms. There were practically no places on our route where you could at least stand, they were hanging in safety systems all the time. The rock is very wild, there is no one around, we have not seen a soul during the entire ascent. But it turned out to be absolutely detached from everything in the world, there were only us, the wall and our multi-kilogram trunks, which we dragged up after us. There are only a few such ascents in the world, and even more so in such exotic places. (Even just to get under the wall, we needed local guides with machetes). Of course, this is not our first rock adventure with Alexey and Zhenya, but we are experiencing such difficulty and danger for the first time. And such an event will be all the more memorable. Guides Boris Egorov and Vladimir Murzaev.

Aloha, the 7 Summits Club! This is Vladimir Kotlyar and a group of climbers on the highest point of Antarctica, the Vinson Massif. As you already know, we reached to the top yesterday. All the participants have ascended, which they are very happy about. Today we went down to the base camp. We pitched tents, had a delicious meal, drank a little. We did another PCR test, well, this is already the reality of our trips and travels. And, in general, we had a good time.  We are preparing to fly to Union. I hope he will be here soon. But! Having learned from the experience of past expeditions, I did not allow us to drink all the available liquids in stock today. And we decided to divide them into four days. So as not to sit and not get bored waiting for the plane. But who knows, maybe the plane will be quite soon.  In general, everything is cool ... We send you warm hugs, strong handshakes from here, from Antarctica! The season can be considered over.

The group of the Russian camp of the 7 Summits Club on Aconcagua Los Bandidos had a rest physically and culturally. Today is the start of ascent

The 7 Summits Club Guide Sergey Avtomonov, from Argentina:

News from Aconcagua. According to the plan, we went up to the entrance to the Aconcagua National Park, issued permits, handed over things. As soon as we got on the trail, a storm began with a wall of rain and hail. For an hour we walked in the rain and when it ended, the sun came out and we began to dry, our team was stopped by a ranger. He said there was a river running along the trail and it wasn't safe to go any further. We had to turn around and go down. So all the groups who tried to go to the Confluencia camp were deployed. Now we have gone down to the village of Penitentes and are spending the night here. Tomorrow morning we plan to move up.

 Having climbed the summit of the Vinson Massif, Lyudmila Korobeshko fulfilled the norm of the "Seven Summits" program for the third time, ascents on the highest peaks of all continents.   Actually, not even two times has any woman in the world done it. So the advantage in this game of the director of the 7 Summits Club  is absolute!  And there are only a few men with such an achievement. Let's add two poles on skis, two more eight-thousand-meter Cho-Oyo and Manaslu, seven-thousand-meters peaks, six of the seven volcanoes, Mount Kosciusko, climbing and trekking around the world. And the management of the company and the family. At the same time, natural beauty and intelligence, the ability to learn, charm, a unique husband and a talented son.

Lyuda is a real hero of Russia!  She is worthy of the memory of her grandfather, the Hero of the Great Patriotic War Miron Korobeshko!

We are proud of you! Your 7 Summits Club.

Hello everyone from Antarctica! Yesterday (or rather today) our friendly group  finally escaped from the snow captivity of Antarctica! On the way to the breakthrough - on the Union - we met Nims (he climbed Vinson with our previous group, then went to the South Pole and also got into Antarctic captivity). We had a little photo shoot with him. And after midnight we arrived on the Mainland, in Punta Arenas.  There, the guides awarded all the participants of our group with certificates for climbing and large commemorative medals. Now we already miss Antarctica and our friends  Vladimir Kotlyar and Alexandr Dorojukov, who stayed there to work with the next group.
