Vladimir Kotlyar, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Punta Arenas (Chile):  Aloha, everyone! The war ends by mutual consent, and the expedition ends when the guides board the last plane. That's why we're not done with Antarctic history yet. Sanya, Lena and I sort out the equipment, repair, dry the tents and, of course, drink a little wine at the same time.

All the participants of the expeditions went home safely.  They received diplomas and medals for their Antarctic achievements. 

In general, greetings to everyone from our already thinned, but still cool Antarctic expedition of the 7 Summits Club!

Alexander Brychkin, participant of the Vinson Massif ascent: The impossible is possible! At the edge of the earth, on the base of Union Glacier Antartica, I met our author - a great mountaineer and a wonderful person, Nirmal Purja, or simply Nims. He led a group with an Arab princess on the Vinson Massif and the South Pole.  We were also at the summit, but we missed each other by just a few days. It was easier for us because we had better weather.

Nims climbed all 14 eight-thousandths in 6 months, which was previously considered categorically impossible.

  From the notes of one of the participants of the Antarctic program of the 7 Summits Club Alexander Brychkin.  Alexander is one of the leading publishers and distributors of books in Russia.  It was only thanks to him that the translation of the book of Nims came out very quickly in our country.

Vladimir Kotlyar, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Antarctica:

Aloha, the 7 Summits Club! This is Vladimir Kotlyar and a group of climbers on the highest point of Antarctica, the Vinson Massif. As you already know, we reached to the top yesterday. All the participants have ascended, which they are very happy about. Today we went down to the base camp. We pitched tents, had a delicious meal, drank a little. We did another PCR test, well, this is already the reality of our trips and travels. And, in general, we had a good time.  We are preparing to fly to Union. I hope he will be here soon. But! Having learned from the experience of past expeditions, I did not allow us to drink all the available liquids in stock today. And we decided to divide them into four days. So as not to sit and not get bored waiting for the plane. But who knows, maybe the plane will be quite soon.  In general, everything is cool ... We send you warm hugs, strong handshakes from here, from Antarctica! The season can be considered over.

Everything is fine. Now we have already gone down to the Low Camp, have set up a camp. We fry burgers, drink pisco, in short, celebrate, normally. In three days we were able to reach the summit - it's cool! Greetings from us, big, big, and the warmest Antarctic hugs!

Aloha, 7 Summits Club! Vladimir Kotlyar and his final expedition to the Vinson Massif in Antarctica are in touch. Today we arrived at the Vinson Massif base camp.

Lyudmila Korobeshko, Director of the 7 Summits Club, from Punta Arenas (Chile):

Hello everyone from Antarctica! Yesterday (or rather today) our friendly group  finally escaped from the snow captivity of Antarctica! On the way to the breakthrough - on the Union - we met Nims (he climbed Vinson with our previous group, then went to the South Pole and also got into Antarctic captivity). We had a little photo shoot with him. And after midnight we arrived on the Mainland, in Punta Arenas.  There, the guides awarded all the participants of our group with certificates for climbing and large commemorative medals. Now we already miss Antarctica and our friends  Vladimir Kotlyar and Alexandr Dorojukov, who stayed there to work with the next group.

Vladimir Kotlyar, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Antarctica:

Aloha, the 7 Summits  Club! The guides Alexander Dorojukov and Vladimir Kotlyar are in touch. Well, today we finally flew out of the Vinson Massif base camp to Union Glacier. And here we immediately met a large plane from Punta Arenas. The previous group, which climbed the summit, flew to a populated land, to a large continent. Well, we met a new group. In general, everything happened so quickly. What I would like to say. Hugged, kissed, shook hands with the previous group. There was a lot of it. But when the friends left and boarded the plane, it seems that this was not enough.

Therefore, Sasha and I sent our warmest Antarctic hugs and handshakes there, to the Mainland, to the friends from the previous group. We've missed you a lot, to be honest, although it's only been a couple of hours since you left. So come on, drink a can of beer for us there, eat a piece of meat! Well, Sania and I are announcing a new expedition to the Vinson Massif open. I hope we will fly to base camp tomorrow, and today we will stay at Union Glacier. Everyone, thank you all!

They successfully coped with the "Last Degree" program, having skied about 110 kilometers. Now all the participants and guides are already resting at the Union Glacier base.

Lyudmila Korobeshko, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, director of the company: Hello everyone from Antarctica! Now we are in the High Camp. Just recently, the last participants came here. We went up in three groups. Someone faster, someone slower. The fastest – in 6 hours, the slowest - in 10 hours. The group, of course, is large and the forces are very unequal. Nevertheless, tomorrow, January 3rd, we want to storm the whole team and hope for a successful ascent. Moreover, the weather is still good. We are a little worried, because not everyone was given last trek easily. Nevertheless, we are planning an assault by the whole team tomorrow. Wish us good luck!

Lyudmila Korobeshko, super-guide of the 7 Summits Club, director of the company, from Antarctica:

Hello everyone from Antarctica! This is Lyudmila Korobeshko from Low Camp. First of all, happy New Year 2022! Today, our friendly team of 15 people made a heroic transition from Base Camp to Low Camp, to a height of almost 2000 meters. In general, it was not easy, because we had to carry a lot of cargo. In general, the march took about eight hours. And we celebrated the New Year in Russia somewhere along the way.  But the Chilean New Year has already been celebrated directly at the camp, where a good party was held. We joined up with groups of other expeditions that came here, some yesterday, some today. Tomorrow, according to the plan, we have a rest day. Our guides, Sasha Dorojukov and Volodya Kotlyar plan to bring all our necessary equipment to the High Camp. And if all this works out, then the day after tomorrow, on January 2, we want to move completely to the High Camp and try the next day, on the 3rd, to storm the summit.

Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club, who returned from Antarctica: News from Antarctica. Three expeditions of the 7 Summits Club to the Vinson Massif have been successfully completed. The beginning of the season was not very friendly in the weather. This delayed us a little on the mountain, but did not prevent everyone from successfully climbing on the summit.

Our group "Vinson-4" or  "7 Nations Army", a very multinational team, flew to Antarctica and immediately we were transferred to the base camp at 2200.

Tomorrow, according to the plan, we will make a depot. And, probably, the day after tomorrow we will move to the Low Camp. All participants feel well. However, part of our expedition in the form of three Nepalese Sherpas has not joined us yet, because they are still going Last Degree. Otherwise, everything is fine.

Lyudmila Korobeshko, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, director of the company, from Punta Arenas (Chile):

Greetings to all from the edge of the world from Punta Arenas! We decided to call ourselves "7 nations army" - we counted representatives of so many countries in our group. Although Sherpas will still join us in Antarctica… Today we have finally gathered in full force. We bought everything we needed. Three times we got caught in the rain, two times we were almost blown away by a hurricane and miraculously did not get burned – that is, we learned all the charms of the changeable weather of Punta Arenas. 

We're putting all our stuff on the plane tomorrow. And the day after tomorrow we hope to fly to Antarctica, where Volodya Kotlyar should be waiting for us. He came to the South Pole with a group today.

Happy New Year to everyone!

The guides of the 7 Summits Club Alexander Dorozhukov and Lyudmila Korobeshko.
