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."
