Buenos Dias! The Campeones group is on its way to the summit of Aconcagua. First we started from the Penitentes to Horcones - this is the entrance to the park.

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Artem Rostovtsev reports from Argentina:

Yesterday-today on Aconcagua. We went up to the Nido de Condores camp. We are almost not tired. We even managed to sleep well. The forecast was for the whole day 90-100km/h along the summit, and we need to complete acclimatization by walking at 6000m. So we packed up and went out thinking that if it gets really bad, we'll be back in half an hour. However, we returned after 4 hours, reducing the plan quite a bit, we did not reach 50 meters in height. Now the group is already resting under the howling wind in the Plaza de Mulas. The forecast for the next few days looks so-so, but we will try to conjure.

Diary of the expedition on Aconcagua.

January 22. We walked to an abandoned hotel, it didn't seem enough. We went higher. Upon returning to the camp, we looked into the high-mountain art gallery to Miguel Doura.

January 23.  The acclimatization rotation to the Canada camp. On the way we met our friend Maksut Zhumaev. We spent some time at the top point, enjoyed the scenery and had lunch with quesadillas. We went down, along the way we learned to move along the scree slopes. Those who arrived with new shoes collected shoals. We will glue the scuffs on the feet until they take the shape of a shoe. The evening was spent in the company of Rustam Nabiyev (a disabled man without legs), who had climbed on the top of Aconcagua the day before.

 

 

Everyone is inspired and delighted by his feat – to ascend on hands only!

Buenos Dias! After a day of rest and a medical examination, the team of "Argentina one love" went for an acclimatization overnight at Nido de Condores.

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Dmitry Semenov reports from Argentina:

Greetings from the slopes of Aconcagua from the Mañana group!  Yesterday, our small but very friendly team, at 5 o'clock in the morning, went to storm the summit of Aconcagua (6962m). I would like to say that the weather all the days before the ascent was not for us, constant snowfalls did not contribute to a successful ascent.  And we felt it in full, at an altitude of 6400m at the beginning of the traverse. Winter snow, dry is very good for skiing, but not as for walking. There were three groups of us on this site, guys from Florida and two climbers from Mexico. In the middle of the traverse, only the Mexicans and we continued to fight. The most difficult climbing started after a place called La Cueva or cave. Where there was a stone scree, now a snowfield lay in front of us, the height of the snow in places reached the chest. The guys from Mexico and I joined forces and started trampling. Having reached the height of 6800, the Mexicans turned around, we continued climbing. But after an hour, it became clear that we would not reach our goal. We had to turn around. We were returning, already in the snowfall.  Valery was waiting for us in our assault camp with hot tea, thank you so much for that! Now we are in the base camp, warm and cozy, making plans for a rematch.

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Andrey Berezin reports from Argentina:

Bon Dias! The group "Argentina one love" continues to acclimatize and move towards the goal. Today, as part of acclimatization, we went to the Horcones gorge, under the Southern Face of Aconcagua, to a place with a beautiful name Plaza Francia. Having climbed to a height of 3955 meters, we decided not to go further, since visibility was limited.  We sat for about half an hour, drank tea, had a snack, told a portion of stories.  On the way back, it turned sharply colder and a fine rain began. We managed to get back to the camp before the serious rain.  In the evening we had a "medical check", a doctor's check showed that the condition of all participants is excellent. Tomorrow we have a long walk to the Plaza de Mulas base camp.  We hope that there will be no precipitation in the afternoon.  The guides of the group are Andrey Berezin and Viktor Volodin.
