As a result, I was not able to reach the top missing a couple of hundred meters.. I did everything I could, and even more. I resisted to the last, and climbed higher and higher. But, alas! In the end, leaving only the desire and the will, but no forces. I could not take a step up. I had to climb down from a height somewhere 6700 meters, after admiring the amazingly beautiful surrounding countryside from this height panorama…

Under the leadership of the president of the Club Alexander Abramov peaks was reached by Dmitry Ginkulov, Oleg Pimenov, Irena Kharazova ...

Hurrah !!! Our team is at the top of Ojos del Salado! Alex Abramov, Dmitry Ginkulov, Oleg Pimenov, Irena Kharazova ... Three our members for various reasons have not reached the top. But the weather ... the wind blows constantly. We managed to find a window in the weather, we were in doubt a long time, thinking and calculating. We started late enough to avoid night frost. But now we're standing on the top… we are the first team in the last few days, which had climbed it. All other teams turned back because of the strong winds and bitter cold. That all! Our expedition to the Ojos del Salado ends successfully. The 7 Summits Club made another victory. Everybody, bye! Wait for us in Moscow!
