Great news straight from the ice, read the report as sent by Alex, leader of our first Vinson team:

(...)
It was very heavy day, only after 10 p.m. we have reached the summit. But in result all of us were happy. Alexander Abramov and Victor Bobok have stepped into the highest point simultaneously...
We have decided to step into the top simultaneously, because we want to be both counted as third Russian climber, finished the project Seven Summits.

Good news from the Irish camp too! Clare O'Leary became the first Irish female 7-summitteer and Pat Falvey completed for the second time just for the heck of it

Gad, sorry but anyone who hasn't done Carstensz Pyramid has not done all 7 summits. The Oz one is a pharse and basically a copout. And as far as Pat's concerned , he's done Carstensz Pyramid once so he's managed to complete the 7 summits once. Might as well do Carstensz Pyramid. Come on. Congrats though are in order for them doing as much as they have so far but congratulating Clare on completing the 7 summits is a bit premature. Come on Clare, do Carstensz Pyramid!!!!!!!!!!
