Hello, Seven Summits! Take an information about the first group on Aconcagua. We spent, our group, for two nights on the Nest of the Condor. There was  any condors, of course,  we have not seen it, and today have climbed the camp Colera, an altitude of 6 thousand meters. As practice shows, young people need more time for acclimatization. Unfortunately, it was proved by our youngest participant Christine. She went down with the second guide, Myasoedov Valery, down to the camp Plaza de Mulas. We, the remaining members, climbed to camp Colera. Our summit climb now depends only on wind speed. We will be here waiting for favorable conditions. And Christina with Valery will have a chance to try again, the time they have. Briefly, that is all. Bye! Sergey Larin.

In the early day we were climbed of acclimatization to altitude 3300. When we came down to the camp, we began to eat, to actively compensate the calories burned.

Hello! Today, the 2nd of January, our team, for the second time in history, climbed peak Yamal. Peak Yamal – it is a mountain, which was named in honor of the Yamal Peninsula in 2005. Our team, Alexander Abramov, Pushkarev Vladimir, Victor Boboc, Israfil Ashurly and  Goodman Soren from Denmark climbed it in December of 2005.

The ascent took five hours, all were very pleased. First, there is a snow ridge, then begins rock and the top is rocky, rocky massif. ...

 Once again, Happy New Year! And tomorrow we plan to exit the High camp, on January 3rd. January 4, we assume summit attempt.

Ludmila Korobeshko from Antarctica: So, our expedition "The last two degrees" was successfully completed. December 31, 2016, as we had planned, to overcome more than 30 kilometers per day. And just a few hours, perhaps an hour before the New Year Chilean time, we reached the camp near the South Pole. The last 10 kilometers were probably the most difficult. Because we have already seen the station Amundsen - Scott, but it is absolutely not approached. It seemed that all of this is removed, just kind of Fata Morgana ...

 

And New Year's for Almaty and Moscow, we have met along the way. That is, in practice, we stubbornly went to his goal. And in 11 p.m. of Chile, we finally arrived at the camp, where we were warmly greeted by Hannah. We were fed, warmed, gave food and drink champagne. Everything ran perfectly. New Year, we still met.

 

The next day we had an excursion to the station Amundsen - Scott. Of course, we took pictures at the memorial points, geographic South Pole.

 

Now we are happy, slept, eaten off. We have already arrived at Union Glacier.

And tomorrow, or rather today, in the night of 2 January 3, we hope to fly  on the mainland, in Chile, in the city of Punta Arenas.

 

Everyone - a Happy New Year! Everyone - all the best! Our expedition was successful. You can congratulate us! Bye!
