A group of the 7 Summits Club arrived on the island of New Guinea in the midst of bad weather
Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club, from Papua:
The weather is bad in Timika. For 9 days helicopters can't fly. We hope for the best…
A miracle happened. The first two helicopters left today. Unfortunately, this is the first expedition flew. They waited here for 8 days. Our cook with things for the camp has not yet flown.

Expedition members 1) Boris Kim (Russia) 2) Ivan Novikov (Russia) 3) Mamta Sodha (India) 4) Poorna Malavath (India). Guide: Alexander Abramov.
