Climbing season on Aconcagua is coming to end, the Argentine summer ends. This year, the 7 Summits Club sent in this wonderful country three groups. Total for the season under the guidance of our guide Vladimir Kotlyar the highest peak in South America was reached by 12 people. Our congratulations to all!

And those who failed, we invite to try again next year! Climbing the Aconcagua is not simple, and adverse weather conditions there may be an insurmountable obstacle.

But still all those who visit these places remain enthusiastic recollection of the beauty and majesty of the mountains, of fantastic sunset, on grand scree and colorful rocks. As well as strong wind and altitude sickness, and the people had to withstand this elements. People that warmed by friendship and red wine.

Is it possible to transfer all of this in the photos? You can, if you try.

See how great it turned out at our third group, under the code name "Corkscrew" ...

Hello! This is Vladimir Kotlyar – a guide of the 7 Summits Club. I'm speaking from the top of Aconcagua, the highest point in South America and the Americas, Southern, Western Hemisphere and general all mountains outside Asia. We all went up to the top. Our team, all - heroes, it was great deal. Our prayers have been answered, because the weather was exactly twice softer, better and more beautiful than it was predicted. There was practically no wind. Clear, also, only small clouds somewhere on the horizon.

Stunning scenery, sunny - we could even sunbathe now.

Our group split up on two parts and we started from different camps. Jamila and Igor started from camp Nido de Condores, other team started from the camp Colera. We have teamed up at the appointed place, at night, and by whole friendly team went up together to the top. You can congratulate us!
We are brought a bottle of champagne to the top. Just symbolically, we will drink it on the Colera....
Flag of 7 Summits Club on top!
Thanks to all who are waiting for us, listening the news! We love you. And we shouts from the summit of Aconcagua.

Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

Hi! This is Vladimir Kotlyar, still from South America, from Argentina. We sit in a tent at an altitude of 6000m, at a place called Cholera. We are having dinner, have dinner. Now we are waiting for tea, melting snow. There is strong wind outside, but in principle, nothing special. Although we should change tents, probably, for the next season.
At night we go to the top… I hope that the Mount let us... Wind, of course, is strong, but what to do? We have only two days with more or less possible weather conditions for climbing. Therefore, we will try, we will endure ... and see what happens. All the best, wish us luck! Adios!

Hello! This is Vladimir Kotlyar, from Climb Aconcagua expedition. Today we finally moved towards the summit. We came to the Plaza de Nido Condores, Condors Nest, at an altitude of five and a half thousand meters ... Here we set up our tents. There was a very strong wind, but in principle, possible to resist. A forecast for tomorrow promises the strongest winds this week. Further, the wind is expected to decrease and then later get back to an even more severe storms. So we will have a window just for two days, which we will try to catch. With wind conditions more or less acceptable for climbing. So wish us luck! All the best!

Hello! This is Vladimir Kotlyar, from an expedition to Aconcagua. Today there was a long day, and the mountain showed its severe character . Nevertheless, our group climbed the top. Today, except us, at top there were 4 more persons … That is, four Canadians were after us. There was very strong wind, all groups cancelled and turned back from the trail. It was little confusing. But we decided to try our good luck. And good luck smiled to us, we reached the top.

Now we went down on Plaza de Mulas and tomorrow we plan to go to the warm Mendoza. We want to warm a little our bones because were frozen to horror. Generally, all thanks who worried about us! Good luck!
