Preparations for the expedition on Ojos del Salado is such hard work that we wish this indefatigable man a big strength and patience!

 

 

 

When you reached the top, you reached happiness... not there is in front not only  descent and rest - ahead of the new summits. We wish to keep for years this state of happiness! To health allow also easy to change countries and continents! And to return to Moscow full of strength and energy!

 

 

 

Alexander Abramov: I once brought myself to such a formula, however, is now in some doubt: "We go to the mountains not to think about the meaning of life." When going to the mountains, I think: "wow, it's been difficult to gather, there are so many things not done" in the plane, even some things I remember... But you wake up in the morning, look out the window, see the mountains and think: how nice that I'm here, and all that was before the ant running – someone didn't call, someone warned someone of money some have ... Well, nothing, will wait. The mountains are just the place where you were supposed to get...

Aconcagua is in the unprecedented snow, we climbed not to the top

Viktor Ershov, guide of  the 7 Summits Club:

Hello Everyone! Ascent of Aconcagua was successful, but not to the top. We reached the height of 6456 by GPS, just above the hut of Independence. There we were at 14.30, then did not go far. Anna felt bad and impending storm, which later happened. So we turned down. Overall, I think for Anne it is a very cool achievement, to climb to the height of Mera Peak. She was pleased, now she wants to train hard and to come back to Aconcagua next year with 7 Summits! The weather was such as it should be for Christmas and New Year - fell more than a meter of snow for a few days, I was tired of trail. The local guides are in shock, for a long time such was not. And cold. But not very windy. In general,  we tired and very pleased with the result.

And now – for wine and steaks!!

Nastya Kuznetsova, guide of 7 summits Club:

 

Yesterday, 10th of January, a group of 7 Summits Club (Pasha and Victor) stood on the summit of the highest volcano in North America and part of the roof of Mexico, peak of Orizaba (5700 m). All the participants are alive, healthy and happy. Orizaba is not the easiest peak, especially if you climb it from the South on the steep scree. Sometimes we had to move on all fours, and literally! But all's well that ends well. Now we are down in the valley. And not even went to Puebla, but returned to Mexico city. Here we are waiting for friends and free entertainment.

We arrived in Papua for climbing the mount of Pyramid Carstensz, hiking  through the jungle.... But because of a rebellion of the Papuans (extortion on the road.... in the truest sense of the word)) we returned to Timika. The helicopter took us to the base camp and WITHOUT acclimatization for 4:10 went up/came down from the mountain! A couple of free days, we used to visit Wamena to naked tribes.

 

        

Acclimatization on Aconcagua completed, now - rest and then a summit bid. PHOTOS

A message from Victor Ershov from Aconcagua:

Hello! We spent two not the sweetest nights in the camp Nido de Condores and rose to acclimatize to camp Berlin at almost 6000m. Cold, windy, snowy... If you add mountain sickness with headache and nausea - this is about so we did! But now we have descended to the base camp, Plaza de Mulas, it's hot here and comfortable! A couple of nights, and then - only to the top!

Valeriy Myasoedov, guide of the 7 Summits Club: greetings from La Paz! Yesterday the team Genesis Extreme in tried to climb Huayna Potosi, 6081. For many participants it was the first experience of mountain climbing, in principle. And the first experience of climbing with elements of technical mountaineering – for everyone.  The will power of  group arouse admiration: for the first time in the mountains and immediately go for 6000! Two members climbed to the top, five others reached the level of 6060 m. Only the last difficult part, the passage on the narrow edge of the ridge just before the top stopped them. In any case, this is a huge personal achievement for each of them... All are under the impression. Bolivia is a magic country!

Lyudmila Korobeshko, guide and Director of the 7 Summits Club: Hello from Ecuador! Today, the Team of Brave Guinea Pigs to 5 am cheerfully climbed to 5700m on Cotopaxi. And then we ran into avalanche-prone slope, which is already about a week no one passed. Several local guides attempted to do the trail, but soon returned, saying that the state of the slope is extremely dangerous. At any moment an avalanche could be.

In General, to the highest point, we missed 200 m.

So, we will have to come back to Ecuador! And not only on Cotopaxi!
