Boris Yegorov, guide of the  7 Summits Club from Patagonia:

Hello dears! This is the guides Boris Yegorov and Sasha Lastochkin. Yesterday we made an attempt to climb to the top of Mount Fitz Roy.  At first everything went well. We came in the dark under the start point to the shoulder.  At first there were steep snow and ice, we're through with it.  But as soon as we came out under the wall, towards us the hurricane blew, we were almost blown from the pass. We wanted to climb, but with such wind and cold it was too much for us. We turned back. We got down without a problem. But everyone is happy, made the most, to turn in time it is great art!

Boris Yegorov, guide of the 7 Summits Club from Patagonia:

Hello, dears! We stomped for seven and a half hours, climbed about 1300 m with huge backpacks to make a depot on the Pass. But down we fled quickly, for four hours. The weather was incredible for Patagonia:  absolute absence of wind and bright sun. We've been enjoying the super views of Fitz-Roy all along.  Now the mountain is a little closer to us. According to the plan we will have two days of rest.  And on Saturday we will start our way to the summit.

Hello dears!  There is a climbing group led by Boris Yegorov and Sasha Lastochkin. Today we climbed a multi-pitch in the vicinity of El Chalten.  We have worked out each of their roles to perfection, enjoy high-quality climbing and cool views. Of course, we celebrated it at a local restaurant. Then we are going to do tomorrow depot on the famous Paso Superior. We have 6 hours to go one way, dig a snow cave for the future and return to spend a night in the heat. Tomorrow should be good weather for climbing the Pass, then the wind starts. We plan to start the climb of Mount Fitz-Roy approximately at the beginning of next week – inshallah…
