Artem Rostovtsev, a guide of the expedition from Nepal: Greetings from the Everest-2021 group! We are climbing higher and higher, at the same time closer to Everest. Today we passed an endless number of panoramic points with views of many mountains, including Mount Everest. But Everest was usually hidden behind cloud cover. Opposite, views of Ama Dablam pleased us almost all walking day. The weather changes like usually in the mountains, suddenly and dramatically. But so far it is predictable:  it is good until lunch, then – precipitation start. Precipitation is still wet, not snowy, so we try to move in the first half of the day. Today, on the way, we looked into the Tengboche Monastery, someone to take a look, someone for the blessing of our expedition. Tomorrow we will continue our route "higher and closer".

 Namaste! This is a guide of the 7 Summits Club Sergey Avtomonov and the group "Three guest workers, not counting the dog". On the first night, a dog came to us and became part of our group. It, like us, works for food only! As for the food, the whole group tasted the local doshirak and it turned out to be beautiful!

On the first day, we climbed to the loggia at 4000m by the pleasant sunny weather. The next day promised to be difficult with the ascent of the Zatrva La pass. The ascent to the pass was like a ladder from the movie "The Lord of the Rings"! The fog and gathering rain urged us to go faster! In the evening, we went down to the Tuli Kharka lodge, where we were promised Internet. But because of the storm that started just a minute after we got there, it didn't work! The next day we went down to Kothe through a misty forest, similar to the forest of Baba Yaga. In the Kothe, finally, the Internet appeared and we are back in touch. But it won't be for long - tomorrow it will disappear again! As it is, all members feel great and is ready to move on!

Mikhail Dedyukhin and Marina Vagina made a successful blitz ascent on the highest volcano on the North American continent and the highest peak in Mexico - Orizaba (5700 m). According to unverified data, the crater of the volcano of Orizaba is the most beautiful of all the “Seven volcanoes”! To check, you need to climb all seven yourself. Despite the fact that they had to freeze a little on the mountain, the climbers liked everything very much. Everything was great! The guide is great! We congratulate the heroes on their next achievement and wish them new heights!

About a week remains before the official start of the big expedition of the 7 Summits Club to Mount Everest and Lhotse. For the second time in history, we will storm the highest peak in the World from the south and for the first time the fourth-highest eight-thousand-meter peak. The first expedition of the 7 Summmits Club on Mount Everest from Nepal, along the Hillary – Tenzing route, took place in 2009. The team led by Alexander Abramov achieved great success - 12 people climbed to the top: 8 participants and 4 guides. There was no organized, professional video shooting during the expedition. However, something was taken down.

 

 

Video clips from the 7 Summits Club's 2009 Everest expedition. Now it can already be considered as historical.

Yesterday, the 7 Summits Club hosted friends at our traditional party in the Sports Marathon Lecture Hall. The meeting was dedicated to the departure of our large expedition on Mount Everest and Lhotse. The hosts of the evening, the leaders of the company, and they are also the leaders of the expeditions, Alexander Abramov and Lyudmila Korobeshko warmly welcomed the audience. First of all, they told about the expedition and presented the participants of future ascents. Virtually, that is, on the screen, and live of those who were able to attend. The participants, in turn, very briefly shared what they wanted to convey to the public.

 

 

During the evening, the performances of famous climbers and participants of the 7 Summits Club expeditions were held in parallel with the communication in an informal atmosphere. The audience was addressed by: Viktor Volodin (with a story about the Russian eight-thousandth Lhotse Middle), Alexey Lonchinsky (about the Tamserku peak, for which he received the "The Golden Ice Axe"), Vladimir Kotlyar (who wandered a lot in the mountains of Nepal), Natalia Smirnova (about an unforgettable trip to Colombia). We should also note the parting words of cosmonaut and mountaineer Mikhail Kornienko. The Hero of Space handed Alexander Abramov the flag of the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center for lifting it to the Himalayan peaks.

 

 

At the end, a traditional auction was held, which was fun and gave pleasure not only to the lucky winners.

 Thank you to everyone who attended our party! Thank you to those who wished success to our expedition!

In 10 days, the main part of the expedition will go to Nepal for very serious climbs. Follow our news!
