May 14. Yay! Hooray For The 7 Summits Club!!!! There is the first ascent on Everest in 2017!
This is the team of the 7 Summits Club: Nima Dorji Sherpa (9th time on the top) and the Female World record holder Lhakpa Sherpa, climbed Mount Everest 8th time!!! According to her story, the weather was terrible. Fixed ropes were inundated with 50 cm of snow and climbers had to pull out it from under the snow. Near the summit there was a very strong wind and as a result Lhakpa has moderate frostbites on both cheeks.
Our second team under the leadership of Sergei Larin now is preparing to summit climb in the camp ABC 6400 m.
The group under the leadership of Alex Abramov (first team) went from ABC back to the Base camp at 5100 m to recover and after 2 days again to start for the summit.
The weather on Everest is now not good: waist-deep snow and heavy wind. From the Nepalese side there is no one summit. From our side we have just a team of Sherpas who fixed rope to the top, a small team from India and our heroic deuce, headed by World record holder - Lhakpa Sherpa...
