Aconcagua 2014 — summit

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

So, it is our second expedition this season to Aconcagua and it is finished with all the members summited Aconcagua on the 6th of January 2014. The weather was good as usual and as usual we didn’t waste a single reserve day, finished the climb 6 days before supposed end of expedition. New year уму we met in «Canada» camp on the elevation of 5050m. The bottle of Chile wine, some fruits from tins but the fact that we’ve been the highest Russians in the world made the holiday a bit brighter. We were the only in Canada camp, but that was even better. But finally due to that we happily made our three day acclimatization hike in perfect weather window and made our summit in another weather window. May be we just have good Carma =) People say, that after we left the base camp, the weather became very bad and it was about a meter of fresh snow in the high camp of Aconcagua. Things happen. Why do the third expedition I am hearing the stories about snow falls of one meter deep and crazy winds and never seen any real snow fall on Aconcagua?[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_masonry_media_grid element_width=»2″ grid_id=»vc_gid:1459169514963-9c21bd2a-5005-0″ include=»13118,13136,13122,13043,13116,13114,13112,13110,13108,13106,13104,13102,13100,13098,13096,13094,13092,13090,13088,13086,13084,13082,13080,13078,13076,13074,13072,13070,13068,13066,13064,13062,13140,13138,13134,13132,13130,13128,13126,13124,13060,13057,13055,13053,13051,13049,13047,13045″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
