Alexander Abramov reported from the summit of Vinson Massif: "Our whole team has reached the top - Mikhail, Roman, Janusz, Kirill and, of course, I, Alexander. Kirill then immediately “stripped” to celebrate it... It's nothing, because the weather is perfect. We walked all the time in the windless, it was hot. Can you imagine such Antarctica "!

Hello! This is Alex Abramov. I run my report from the summit of the Massif Vinson. We are the first and only team, which today climbed to the highest point.

We took a chance, went out in bad weather, and guessed. At the top are staying now: Alexey, Dmitry, Vasily, and our American friends ANI guides Scott, Næss and Andy.

Hello! This is Alexander Abramov from Antarctica. Yesterday, a new group arrived: Roman, Michail, Cyril and our Polish friend Janusz. Now our friendly company of five plans how to climb Vinson Massif. As you know from previous reports, the weather this year is mostly bad. Now we have at Vinson Massif again delayed flights.

Despite the fact that we were promised today for not very good weather, strong wind, we were the only team that dared to go up. And now we came to the assault camp, surprise - is absolute calm!

Hello! This is Alex Abramov from Antarctica. In Antarctica bad weather continued, the snow falls, hardly see the surrounding mountains. This continues for the third day, and that the worst thing is that in the Vinson Massif ... it is also all covered with clouds, and also snowing. Therefore flights now not take place and we are in Union Glacier Base Camp. We eat well here, in principle, we have comfortable conditions. But ... it is high time to fly. It seems that the bad weather will last a few more days. Maybe we will be able to escape.

Bye! Thank you! And a Merry Christmas!

Hello! This is Alexander Abramov from Antarctica. All our day was held in preparation for the flight to an Mount Vinson. But this did not happen, the weather turned bad. Now we are still sitting on the base of Union Glacier ... The weather will give us finally a chance to sleep. We almost do not sleep three days, always moving somewhere. Today we went 15 kilometers from the base of the Union Glacier. There we ran the drone and did some shooting. We also played miniature golf. Maybe this was the first blow with a stick in Antarctica. Although I doubt it.

Well, in general, the team has a cheerful mood. And if tomorrow we will not be able to fly to Vinson Massif, the day after tomorrow there is a plan to fly to the South Pole. It will take approximately one day. The weather at the base camp is not bad. But the weather in the mountains and around - bad. There is poor visibility ... around. As a result, our plans are not clear.

Alex: Only we (Lena Abramova) said farewell to Jamil Manizade for the flight to the South Pole, and visited Fort Bulnes, as members of our first group arrived in Punto Arenas. They are Vasily, Alexey and Dmitry.

We are at a monument to Magellan surrounded by beautiful ladies - Christine and Helen.


This morning there was a check the equipment together with a guide Scott Wolums.
The audit showed the full readiness of the team.
So everyone with peace of mind went to visit the penguins on Magdalena Island.
I went to buy the products that tomorrow we will ship for loading. For a while! ..
