Hello! There are Vladimir Kotlyar and "courageous team." What do I want to say? We are, in fact, done what we came here, then, why we are all gathered here. Today, all members of the group were managed to climb to the highest point of the ice continent - Vinson Massif. It was cool! Great! We were a little frozen, but how without it in Antarctica!

All are down, satisfied, but very tired. Now we are preparing a dinner ...

Although we completed the ascent program, but we have yet to descend down and to liquidate camps. And it is quite tiring task. But we can handle, we are all on the shoulder. So, bye! Wait for more news!

Hello to all the listeners of an audio 7 summits Club! In the air Vladimir Kotlyar from Antarctica, where we got a third Vinson expedition. My team ... I call this team "brave team" as the boys don't define themselves with the name. The expedition is already in full swing, tomorrow is the culminating day, according to the plan. In general, we are a team of brave today jauntily climbed the High camp on the 3800, by only five and a half hours. So all is very cool – well done, guys. We set up the camp, have dinner and  quietly go to sleep. For tomorrow we will, most likely, try to climb the peak, if the weather forecast will come true and we will have tomorrow cool, good spec.

 

So, wish us luck! Keep our fingers crossed! See you tomorrow!

Hi all! This is Vladimir Kotlyar, from Antarctica. Today our intrepid group spent acclimatizing and at the same time recovery day. In the early day we were climbed of acclimatization to altitude 3300. When we came down to the camp, we began to eat, to actively compensate the calories burned. We have created a reserve calories in the fat layer under the skin, which we will spend tomorrow and the day after. Tomorrow we plan to move to the High camp. And there, God willing, we hope to quickly do the summit.

Preliminary weather forecasts give us a good chance, good opportunity. The whole group goes quickly. In General, guys are sports prepared...

We are sending th best regards  to the Motherland! Wait for our posts, Adios!

Hello everyone! It is Vladimir Kotlyar. Today we continue our courageous march across the expanses of Antarctica, in the direction of the highest point of the ice continent. We go up, dragging sleds, with equipment and food. Today we must rise to the Low camp, at an altitude of 2800 meters above sea level. The weather is not bad, but not to say that good - all covered with clouds. It snowing a bit, but there is no wind. Tomorrow we will probably make an acclimatization outing.

 

All the best, thank you for your attention! Bye!

Hello! Today, the 2nd of January, our team, for the second time in history, climbed peak Yamal. Peak Yamal – it is a mountain, which was named in honor of the Yamal Peninsula in 2005. Our team, Alexander Abramov, Pushkarev Vladimir, Victor Boboc, Israfil Ashurly and  Goodman Soren from Denmark climbed it in December of 2005.

 Today, as at the top was  a strong wind, we decided to go again for acclimatization go to the peak of Yamal. It is located near Lower Camp, in which we find ourselves. The ascent took five hours, all were very pleased. First, there is a snow ridge, then begins rock and the top is rocky, rocky massif. ...

 Once again, Happy New Year! And tomorrow we plan to exit the High camp, on January 3rd. January 4, we assume summit attempt.

Hello!  It is Ludmila Korobeshko from Antarctica, a guide of  the expedition "The last two degrees," of the Kazakh Geographic Society. Now we are at 32 kilometers from the South Pole. The last days we walked 20 kilometers on a daily basis, which was not easy. Today we decided to go for one day remaining to the Pole 32 kilometers.

 

Most likely, the New Year for Moscow, we will meet on the road. What, in general, it is quite original. I think that at the time of the New Year for Moscow, we will be 12 kilometers from the Pole. I hope we will overcome it.

 

Well, that’s all, and Happy New Year! Hurrah!

Good afternoon! It is Lyudmila Korobeshko from Antarctica. So, we continue to move to the South Pole, it remains 52 km. And we hope to go through it in two days. Although it is unclear whether this is real or not. Because the distance is certainly big. We want today to pass ... 20 km. And the last day we have  to go "up to the stop."

That is, we are fine. Weather ... not very good. All the time clouds, accordingly, it is difficult to navigate. When there is sun, it is much easier to follow the shade.

 

Well, all a Happy New Year! We hope in the night from 31 th to 1 st to be at the South Pole. Bye!

 

 

 

The goal of the Pole of Independence expedition team is to achieve the maximum, i.e. to make an effort and reach the Amundsen-Scott station till the New Year! You can trace the progress of the members at following link: http://kazgeo.kz/projects/sp2016/marshrut

 

Due to this reason Magzhan, Ilyas, Yury, and Daulet take their rest fast, immediately pack the camp, and pass the maximum possible distance, eat fast, and go to sleep. There is no space for sentiments, as there, behind the horizon, the desired georgaphical Southern Pole is awaiting for them, where the flag of our country Kazakhstan will be installed, as it was 5 years ago!

Hello! This is Alexander Abramov from Antarctica. Today, our first group flew to Punta Arenas. And the  second group of seven came. Two guides, I and Vladimir Kotlyar met them at the Union Glacier. Now we have arrived already at the base camp of Vinson Massif. Everything happened very quickly, very suddenly. Just half an hour after landing, we were crammed into a small airplane. Now it is 2 a.m., we had dinner and now we go to bed.

 The weather in fact  is some very unstable, a strong west wind ... more clouds.

So we do not even see the top. Tomorrow, most likely, we will go to the next camp called Low Camp. The team is only male. All people are healthy, eat well, with a good appetite. So tomorrow will try to move to the Lower Camp, from where I will try to contact you ...
