  Russian Aconcagua 2004


 Aconcagua from a Russian set of eyes..

Update 8: News from Aconcagua Expedition of Russian Adventure Team of Alpindustria from Moscow under the leadership of Alexander Abramov and Ludmila Korobeshko. Alexander Abramov reports: "9, February. It is rather difficult to write the diary the pen is frozen all the time. We are in the camp Nido de Condores at the altitude 5600m.

In the morning we woke up at 4800m and all the members felt good after night at such altitude. After breakfast we gathered the camp and at about 11 o'clock our team climbed up unhurriedly. It was more difficult to go up then yesterday. At two o'clock we were at the camp 5600m and blood was hammering in the temples. The view is fabulous and already the sixthousenders are seen from here. The camp is installed near the lake. The weather is good for the time present. When the tents were set up we decided to have a rest. The guys from Ukraine visited our camp. They followed the same route but with advance in one day. It turned out to be that they are keeping up our project seven summits and eager to join us in the spring to ascend the Mackinley. We agreed to meet at the base camp.

In the evening we had dinner and made photos with flags. The sunset is picturesque here so we decided to make the photos during the sunset. Good Bye."
