Sergey Larin, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Mexico:

Yesterday our group drove to a height of 3100m, to a comfortable base on the slope of La Malinche. On the way, visiting the famous Cholula Pyramid. Today we went to the acclimatization climb. The task of climbing to the top was not set, however, 8 out of 12 people successfully climbed La Malinche (4420 meters). The rest of the participants also did a good job, gained more than 1000 meters. This is a good result for an acclimatization exit. At this time, the second guide of the team, Boris Egorov, went up to the Orizaba base camp to prepare everything for the reception of the group for the next ascent.

Sergey Larin, guide of the 7 Summits Club:  The group "1078", on July 17 at 7:25, climbed the highest point of Europe. We left by ratrak at 2: 00, and at 9:45 we already went down to the refuge. That is, it is proved that acclimatization when you sleep at the bottom, and during the day you go to a height, has the right to exist.  However, it is worth noting that all the participants were physically prepared. Although only one participant has been at altitude before - on Aconcagua, and the second –f or the first time in the mountains.

This is Sergey Larin, the guide and doctor of the expedition of the 7 Summits Club "Everest-Lhotse 2021" from the Everest base camp. All our groups went to the final (hopefully) stage of acclimatization - the ascent to camp 3 (C3) 7300m. There is no Internet up the base camp, so Alex asked me to pass the news on. It is now noon 5.05. The first Everest group (guide Artem Rostovtsev) is in camp C2 6460m. The second Everest group (guide Alex Abramov) on the troute from C1 6060m to C2. The group Lhotse (guide Kotlyar) came to C1.

Now about the situation in Nepal. The government abruptly closed all domestic flights, including helicopter flights from 3.05. And they promise to close international flights from 6.05, that is, today at 24: 00. For us, it wasn't as sad as it could have been. Since helicopter transportation is still possible on special anti-COVID permits. For the supply of expeditions, it is possible to receive them. So we must not starve to death. Moreover, there is a stock of non-perishable products until mid-June.

Sergey Larin,  the guide of the group from Tanzania: The “Siafu” team news. Today, February 15, we moved from Camp Shira to Camp Baranko 4000m, via Lava Tower (4600m). There was lunch on Lava Taur. And after lunch, it rained heavily again. We went down to the Baranko camp along the rain rivers.  The descent reminded me of Papua New Guinea at times. I couldn’t remember such rains on Kilimanjaro.  I've never been here during the rainy season, though. Kilimanjaro is covered in snow. If this goes on, you'll see that the glaciers will recover.
