Hello! This is Vladimir Kotlyar, from an expedition to Aconcagua. Today there was a long day, and the mountain showed its severe character . Nevertheless, our group climbed the top. Today, except us, at top there were 4 more persons … That is, four Canadians were after us. There was very strong wind, all groups cancelled and turned back from the trail. It was little confusing. But we decided to try our good luck. And good luck smiled to us, we reached the top.
