Guide to the 7 Summits Club Andrey Berezin reports from Argentina:

Bon Dias!  "Argentina, one love." Today we leave the cozy corner of the Penitents and move on. First, the bus took us to the entrance to the Aconcagua National Park, where we registered our permits and received the necessary instructions about the rules of behavior in the park. Then we went to the Confluencia camp, which is located at an altitude of 3400 meters. For the first hour the sun shone brightly and it was hot, then the weather began to deteriorate, and when we were already approaching the Confluencia, a headwind blew and a rain began to fall. Here we needed all the necessary set of clothes that we had in our backpacks: from light fleece to membrane.  We settled at the Confluencia in two houses.  Now we are resting, waiting for dinner. Tomorrow we are going towards the Plaza Francia.  The guides of the group are Andrey Berezin and Viktor Volodin.

And here we are again gathering here, on the other side of the world in the Southern Hemisphere, when we have a cold winter in Russia, there is always sunshine, lots of light and warmth, delicious tart wine and the best steaks, endless pampas and numerous mountain peaks, amazingly beautiful snow-capped summits and fantastic glaciers, unique Patagonia and Iguazu waterfalls... It's all about Argentina, of course! The team of guides of the 7 Summits Club gathered in Mendoza yesterday on the eve of the upcoming season in Aconcagua, and it promises to be long and eventful.  By the end of February, dozens of lucky people will try to realize their dreams with us. Aconcagua, 6962 m, always attracts climbers with its exclusivity - the highest point of America, the second highest peak of the Seven Summits program, a unique corner of the world in the Andes mountain system. And we have a lot to do to ensure that our groups receive everything necessary for the successful completion of the program. In the next few days we will reactivate our casts, check all the equipment, buy the necessary equipment and food for high-quality operation of the Base and high-altitude camps.  There is a lot of work to be done, and we will do everything possible, put our whole soul into providing our groups with the highest level of service. If you still have doubts about participating in the ascent program on Aconcagua, discard them! We are waiting for you!

From Mendoza, the guides of the 7 Summits Club are Viktor Volodin, Andrey Berezin, Dmitry Semenov and Valery Myasoyedov.
