The group of 7 Summits Club, leader Vladimir Kotlyar, went to climb Mount Aconcagua
Hello! This is Vladimir Kotlyar, from Climb Aconcagua expedition. Today we finally moved towards the summit. We came to the Plaza de Nido Condores, Condors Nest, at an altitude of five and a half thousand meters ... Here we set up our tents.
