 President of the 7 Summits Club Alexander Abramov reports from Pakistan: The team "Welcome to Pakistan" from Pakistan. It is the best country. This morning, waking up in tents on the Diosai plateau, our team, tired after successfully climbing to the Highest point of Mount Shatun 5400m, was surprised to find tents littered with snow. Quickly plunging into the jeeps, we rushed down to the district center of Skardu - in the heat.

 A short road led us to paradise. We went to the Cold Desert, a unique place where the World Rally Cup takes place. These are sand dunes on which you can drive on all types of equipment. Beauty!!! In the evening we said goodbye to half of the team that finishes the trip. The second part of the team starts a new ascent of the technically difficult summit Hosar Ganga (6200m) tomorrow. There may not be a connection for 4 days.

News of the Project 8000.guide. This morning, on the slopes of Manaslu, just below Camp 4, an avalanche hit a group of Sherpas who were lifting loads to the assault camp.  Information about passing rescue is updated all the time, you can follow on the website https://thehimalayantimes.com . According to reports, 12 people were injured, some of them seriously, or even in critical condition.  Some of them have already been taken to hospitals.  Rescue operations are complicated by bad weather.

The group of the 7 Summits Club is in full force at the base camp, in complete safety.  The team planned to start climbing tomorrow. However, this exit probably will not take place. First you need to wait for the end of the rescue work and assess the real state of the route. Today is a hard day at Manaslu. First came the message that when descending from the top, the famous American athlete Hilaree Nelson fell into a crevasse and probably died, then the avalanche.

Sergey Larin, the head of the expedition to Manaslu reports from Nepal:

News of the project 8000.guide. Today, on 21.09, our team went down to the base camp. We were ready to climb. We headed up with this thought and preparation. Our acclimatization was not quite final, but the planned amount of oxygen allowed us to make the ascent. However, the weather has spoken its word!  The ropes fixed by the Nims team to the top became useless under a meter-thick layer of snow. And the assault camp on the 7400 is not installed and equipped. We spent the night at 6800, this is Camp 3. The team does not lose hope, despite the fact that it will most likely have to reschedule tickets. By the way, on the 17th day we found out that our expedition is international. Yuri Lukyanov is a representative of Kazakhstan. It's a rest now. Another confirmation that patience is the main thing in high-altitude mountaineering. By the way, there are also traffic jams on Manaslu.

Valery Myasoedov, the guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Iran:

Greetings from Tehran! The final group of the 2022 season was held at a high level.  Having made the ascent in 6 hours and 20 minutes to the top of Damavand, we put not a dot, but an exclamation mark for the whole season as a whole! Oksana and Andrey, having shown excellent physical fitness during acclimatization rotation, and on the summit day, showed themselves worthily. The weather was not as comfortable as in summer.  September is the autumn season with strong cold winds, the more deserved and desired was the peak. Well done!

Yes, the 2022 season on Damavand turned out well for the 7 Summits Club. For the first time, during the whole season, from June to September, we formed several groups every month, and it is important to note that we ensured 100% ascent of all participants to the top. We hope that the next season will be just as eventful and successful! Damavand is waiting for you!
