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

Chile says hello! We have started another expedition to the Vinson massif in Antarctica. Today, all the participants finally gathered at our starting point of the route - the city of Punta Arenas. From here, the plane will take us to Antarctica. The main equipment is already on the white continent. We are preparing for departure, we hope everything will happen without delay. We start the day after tomorrow. In the meantime, the last preparations: purchases, packing of cargo and excursions in free time. Those who arrived a little earlier were able to admire the beauty of the Torres del Paine National Park. Today we have plunged into the history of the discovery of the Strait of Magellan and the first explorers of Patagonia. We are waiting for the departure, and we keep our fingers crossed for good weather. Antarctica is waiting. And in parallel with us, Alex Honold will go to Vinson, did everyone watch Jimmy Chin's movie "FreeSolo"?
