Alexander Abramov, head of the expedition to Manaslu, from the base camp:
News of the expedition "Manaslu 2017 – 7 Summits Club".
Today there was a day of rest for members of our expedition. Tomorrow we are going for acclimatization to Camp 2. This is at 6400m. And today we conducted exercises on search in an avalanche with the use of avalanche sensors. Sergei Larin presented the theory and conducted practical training. Members found all the hidden sensors. The fact is that Camp 2 is in an avalanche place. In 2008, 22 people died there from an avalanche. In 2012 - 16. Therefore, all climbers will sleep with avalanche sensors with snow probes and shovels in the tent.
