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

 Hello, 7 Summits Club! We've finally gone to the mountains! Today our base is a small ski resort of Penitentes, at a height of 2700 meters above sea level. Having reached this place, we prepared our simple belongings for transportation on mules, and went for acclimatization. The whole group went to the height of 3100. When I looked back at the group, goosebumps ran on the skin: after all, such a detachment can capture some medieval city!

Victor Ershov, guide of the 7 Summits Club from Argentina:

Hello! Justified the name (Double Victor - that is a Double Victory!) and today at 14.15 we stood at the top of Aconcagua - one of the first this season in general and the first from the Russian camp of the 7 Summits! The ascent took place in difficult conditions - in the morning and at night there was a strong wind with small grains, then for a few hours it spread and was relatively warm. And on the descent we were covered with a thunderstorm with fog – we were a little beat static.  There were four forecasts, which I compared before the ascent - none was justified! But this did not prevent us to successfully ascend and no less successfully descend immediately from the top to the base camp of Plaza de Mulas! Season's open! Hurray!
