Aconcagua 6962 by first Macedonian female




On 10.02.11, Ilina Arsova was the first Macedonian women to accend Acconcagua summit 6962m, in 6 days, solo (with no sponsors, no guides, no support company or any other logystics).
With extremely bad weather, temperature of -27C on the summit, lots of snow, wind and low visibility, she succeeded to summit and safely go down to the hight altitude camp.

Her cruisal support for this expedition is her parter, climber- Ilija Ristovski who unfortunately, because of infection in the lower leg, while aclimatization on another mountain (Vallesitos 5500m), this time could not join her in the Aconcagua accent.

-'We hurd that Aconcagua have not had this bad weather in the last 50 years, and about 6 victims in the last 10 days'.

Her experience, stamina and physical preparedness took her safely to the summit and down to thehigh altitude camp.
The Macedonian couple continues their stay in Argentina till mid of March, now going south exploring the beautifull Patagonia.

Na 10.02.11 vo 15:57h, nasata Ilina Arsova (slikar, planinar i ljubitel na extremnite sportovi), go iskaci vrvot Aconcagua od 6962m. Aconcagua e najvisok vrv na zapadnata hemisfera i se naogja na juznite Andi, na teritorija na Argentina.
So ova dostignuvanje Ilina stana prva Makedonka koja go iskacuva ovoj vrv koj e navisok dostrel vo zenska konkurencija dosega vo Makedonija. Taa go iskaci vrvot kako samostojna Makedonka, vo "solo" stil, odnosno bez sponzori, bez vodici, logistika nitu pridruzna kompanija.
- Ogromen udel za ovaa ekspedicija sekako ima mojot partner, soucesnik i kacuvac - Ilija Ristovski, bez kogo ova dostignuvanje nemase da bide vozmozno. Iako site dosegasni iskacuvanja gi imame ostvareno zaedno, ovojpat, poradi infekcija na nogata za vreme na trening- aklimatiziraneto na planinata Vallesitos 5500m, Ilija ne mozese da ucestvuva vo iskacuvanjeto na Aconcagua.

- Obicno expediciite za iskacuvanje na ovoj vrv odvojuvaat 12-20 dena, no jas go kaciv za 6, zaedno so simnuvanje- vkupno 8 dena. Ova e ogromna planina i samo za pristap do pod nea potrebni se 3 dena pesacenje.

Pristignavme vo Mendoza (Ar) porano i obavivme trening i aklimatizacija na druga planina vo blizina na Mendoza, iskacuvajki go vrvot Vallesitos od 5500m.
Pri iskacuvanje na dvata vrva ne sledese golemo nevreme so snezni viulici, silen veter i slaba vidlivost. Osobeno za Aconcagua za nasa nesrekja vo poslednive 50 godini ne se pamti vakvo nevreme sto nas ne snajde na planinata. 6 zrtvi vo poslednite 10 dena e navistina opasen fakt.

Sepak mojata spremnost, iskustvo i izdrzlivost me odvedoa do vrvot kade uspeav da go razvioram Makedonskoto zname.
Na simnuvanje nadolu, so temperatura od -27C i skoro nikakva vidlivost, se snajdov bezbedno da se simnam do visinskiot kamp.
