  Russian Aconcagua 2004


"Adventure Team Alpindustria"

Update: News from Aconcagua Expedition of Russian Adventure Team of Alpindustria from Moscow under the leadership of Alexander Abramov and Ludmila Korobeshko. Alexander Abramov reports: "13, February. The night of 13th justified its number. Today is the stormy wind and snowstorm. The morning is terrible. Two tents were tore to pieces. The urgent evacuation was needed snow-covered climbers. Yesterday three climbers from Ukraine conquered the summit their ascension lasted from 3.30 to 19.00. This ascension inspires us. There were some Americans but they spent twenty hours to climb the summit. We left the camp 5600 at 14.00 with heavy rucksacks. The stormy wind was blowing. In three hours and a half we reached the camp Berlin 5900m. The camp is perfect the woody houses installed here but for our big group there was no place. So we went further to the camp which name is sounds like Russian word "Cholera". The place for tents was found. The wind dropped a little bit. Tomorrow is the Ascension Day. We divided into two groups for ten persons. The first group will be "Tortoises" and the second "Elks". We are all feel healthy and gung-ho. At the summit we take with us two portable radio transmitters and satellite phone. The gear was given to us by the school Senkevich "Extreme and Adventure Tourism". Good Bye."
