Both groups successfully completed the cycle of acclimatization at camp Confluencia, went under the South wall of the Aconcagua and finally climbed to the base camp.

So far so good, everything is good...

Sergey Larin, a guide of the 7 Summis Club:  

The climb was difficult. We were waiting for weather for four days. Then the one-day window has appeared, but it was necessary to begin (the first two days) in difficult weather conditions. In the first day porters refused to start. But as a result, I think, they were satisfied that they managed to reach Nido de Condores. It is good that we have put up earlier a big stationary tent – it has helped out us, because in this place to put tents on such weather is problematic. In day of summit bid some teams turned back, some refused. But the team named “Good, Bad and Angry” has shown an excellent spirit and strength of mind that has allowed to achieve result. Now we already are sitting and we waiting for a helicopter on Plaza de Mulas.

 

 

 

SUMMIT! Sergey Larin's team coped with the mission. There is the highest point of all America! We congratulate!

 Weather also created great difficulties. Strong wind didn't cease all the time of ascent, frequent and dense snow reduced visibility to several meters, the hard frost added to "pepper" to feelings.

 

 Nevertheless, in 12 hours the group reached top. The way back took about 2,5 hours. All people exhausted returned to the camp from which began the final storm. After a dinner, hot tea and spending the night in tents, next morning, they begin descent to the base camp. It is possible (if everything develops favorably)  tomorrow, having taken rest in the base camp, they will go down, having finished a route.

Hello, Seven Summits! Take an information about the first group on Aconcagua. We spent, our group, for two nights on the Nest of the Condor. There was  any condors, of course,  we have not seen it, and today have climbed the camp Colera, an altitude of 6 thousand meters. As practice shows, young people need more time for acclimatization. Unfortunately, it was proved by our youngest participant Christine. She went down with the second guide, Myasoedov Valery, down to the camp Plaza de Mulas. We, the remaining members, climbed to camp Colera. Our summit climb now depends only on wind speed. We will be here waiting for favorable conditions. And Christina with Valery will have a chance to try again, the time they have. Briefly, that is all. Bye! Sergey Larin.
