Boris Egorov, the guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Peru:

So, our small persistent team climbed 750 vertical meters of one of the largest walls in Latin America. In the middle of the afternoon of September 2, we were standing on top of a granite hulk called the Sphinx, 5325m high.

The weather was on the verge, the whole ascent was covered with clouds and sometimes with snow. Despite this, it took us less than eight hours to get to the top. I spent quite a lot of time in these places and I know that it took us much less time than other sports teams, despite such a setback with the weather. The fitness of all participants affects not only physically, but also the coherence of actions, as well as competent acclimatization.

This is our third wall with participant Alexey and we do not intend to stop, further – more and more interesting! Well, now we are moving to Lima for a well-deserved rest on the ocean.

P.S. We need to check, but perhaps we are the first team from Russia who climbed this wall.
