Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club, Head of the Everest expedition:

What the Everest 2022 expedition has been doing for the last three days?  While Russia is celebrating May 9, we decided to rest and descended to Namche Bazaar at an altitude of 3600 m. Closer to oxygen. And in order not to get tired, we used helicopters. Upon arrival in Namche, oxygen literally fell on us. At first I slept for 24 hours. And I didn't want to wake up. 

But it's dangerous. I had to get up and go eat. Then there was a bar, billiards, beer....  The usual life of climbers on vacation in Namche Bazaar. Arrival of friends and relatives. Haircut, shaving, sauna and massage. Coffee, croissants, momos and cakes. Then shops, shops, pharmacies, shops. And all this in 2 days. All – we must stop. Tomorrow at 11:00 we fly to BC. The rest is over.

 The forecast changes every day. Today, the first teams of climbers spend the night at the 8000 m assault camp. And at night they go to the assault. According to the forecast, the wind is strong. We think we will be at the summit on May 18 or 19.

Annotation

Biography of Alexander Abramov — one the most famous climber in Russia, who twice completed the "Seven Summits" program and made about 500 ascents of varying difficulty in dozens of countries, including 10 ascents on Mount Everest.

Quotes

The climbers were always ready to help each other. You come to someone, say: guys, the food is over – I didn't calculate, the burner broke or something else happened - they will definitely help you – I didn't even think that it could be otherwise ...

The mountain can punish for carelessness, overestimation of their own strength or an incorrect assessment of the situation.

In general, you need to go to Everest only if you have realized for yourself that this ascent is more important to you than your life itself. A person should clearly understand for himself: there is a very high risk of not going down on Everest.

The decisive stage of the preparation of the Everest-22 expedition has begun. Alexander Abramov is flying to Nepal to prepare it. Now the 7 Summits Club's team has 17 participants, 4 guides and 20 high-altitude Sherpa porters. Not counting the same number of Nepalese who will work below, ensuring the life of the expedition. All this must be arranged in advance: equipment, oxygen, a team of Sherpas, permits...  This week in Kathmandu is allocated for the preparation of the expedition. In addition to the classic ascent of Mount Everest, this year there will be a team that will go up to 7000m with the passage of the Khumbu icefall. Also, in the spring season more than 10 trekking groups of the 7 Summits Club will storm the Base Camp and the surrounding mountains above 6000m.
