Buenas tardes, amigos! It is Vladimir Kotlyar, an expedition on Aconcagua. We are, united in our troika, are almost at the foot of the South Face of Aconcagua. However, nothing can be seen. The weather is bad. Everything is covered with clouds, snow. Right as Russian winter, or, well, a Canadian one. All we are OK, wonderful. We have come here with ease. And now, after a light lunch at this height, we are going to go down there to meet the second part of our group. All the best to all, Adios! Wish us luck, the weather!

Hello! This is Alex Abramov – from the top of Vinson Massif! Whole our team has climbed to the top: Mikhail, Roman, Janusz, Kirill and I, Alexander. Kirill undressed then just to celebrate ... It's nothing, because the weather is perfect. We walked all the time in the windless, it was hot. Can you imagine such we are in Antarctica! Boys, too, are preparing for undressing. If we do not freeze, then immediately will flee to the High camp. Congratulate us: anything we wanted, we have achieved. We now have a long, a very long way home. Best regards!!!

Hi everybody! It says Vladimir Kotlyar, a guide of an expedition on Aconcagua. We are now in the first camp, where we'll stay 2 days for acclimatization. Plaza Confluencia – on called this place. Now we sit, eat, gather strength. We went up not at 3 hours according a standard schedule, but less than 2 hours. While we were not in a hurry, we go slowly watching birds, surrounding landscape. In principle, it can not but rejoice. Hence, more time to rest .... (laughs) ... We all are well. We send greetings to our homeland: Canada, Voronezh, and in my lovely Caucasus, in Elbrus! To all my friends! By!

Hello! This is Ludmila Korobeshko Ecuador from the expedition to the top of the most distant from the center of the Earth (Chimborazo).

December 30, we arrived at the mountain refuge at the base of Cayambe volcano at an altitude of 4600m. By the way, the cone of this volcano is located precisely on the equator, and this peak is the highest on the equator (5780m). And still on the way to the refuge, we crossed the equator five times, the final - at an altitude of 4200 m. In the evening we went to acclimatize to 4800. The wind was very strong and moist. We returned dripping wet. Nevertheless, the next morning we went to ice climbing training. Again we returned wet. At 16.00 on Ecuador at midnight Moscow time we celebrated New Year's Eve and went to sleep for a few hours before the upcoming summit bid.

At midnight, from 31 to 1th along the Ecuadorian New Year's custom, we burned an effigy. And we started the climb. We were on the top at 6.30 a.m. not all, but in a good mood. The weather was good.
At 9:30 a.m. we were already at the refuge, and an hour later went south to Baños. Now we rest in hacienda near the volcano Kilotoa. Tomorrow is a rest day, and we will visit the lake in the crater of the volcano.
January 3, we're going to Chimborazo, and on the night of January 4 go to the assault.
