Hello everybody! It is Vladimir Kotlyar. We are sitting now, having dinner in a tent  in the high camp Cholera, at six thousands. Wind, of course, is very strong. It seems that the tent was about to leave for a flight. But it's probably good - if we raise the right to the top. And actually, jokes joke, it is not best condition for climb, we will  fight. At five in the morning, we will try to exit on the summit bid, we will break through. Because this is the only one weather window, the unique opportunity in those days, that we set to climb. So, wish us luck! Adios! We will do everything possible to reach the summit of Aconcagua.

Hello! Here Vladimir Kotlyar a guide of the 7 Summits Club from Plaza de Mulas. Today we had an active rest day. We walked on a glacier, had a walk to the old, but the broken shelter. In general, we are quietly acclimatizing. Now we have passed the "Medical check" - in the morning. A couple of people asked to visit second time. But we hope we will catch up by acclimatization. And basically, we feel good, ready for the climb. The only thing - that the bad weather. So we will be waiting, looking out a weather window.

Best regards, from our team!

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!
