A guide of the 7 Summits Club Alexander Spirin reports from Tanzania:

The morning started at night. A difficult rocky walk, as long as the night itself.  A glowing chain on the slope and pink, predawn, promising something kind, a thin strip anticipating the sunrise.  And we are at Stella point, hugging each other, and then another hour and a half of snuffling to the main peak, a bottle of champagne in honor of the summit and Misha's birthday. And then the descent, long, dusty, tired. And in the evening there was a celebration: climbing and birthday, cake, champagne and the Millennium camp at an altitude of 3700, conversations, stories and great mood. Tired and satisfied, we return home, in parallel we are planning a new travel with the 7 Summits Club!  Guides 2 Alex: Abramov and Spirin.

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Alexander Spirin reports from Tanzania:

It's good that we are cats, the cats thought today, spread their claws and as a beautiful panther in a single rush climbed the most difficult rock of the route - Baranco Wall. After it, there were new up and down, united in one thing: discouraging, breathtaking and heart-pounding views of Kilimanjaro. And all this acquired an even more dizzying coloring thanks to endless stories about cases from mountaineering life, and just the life of our experienced guides. After drowning the crimson African sun in snow-white clouds, we started dinner…

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Alexander Spirin reports from Tanzania:

Our team is called "Wet Cats"! "Wet pussies" are the guides' fantasies! Cats love comfort and beauty, which African nature has offered us in abundance today. It enveloped us with rocky landscapes overgrown with indescribable endemics, mysterious caves and blue "Roerich" mountains in the distance. We walked smoothly, almost like a cat, overcoming difficult stone passages. In the camp, as a bonus, the Tanzanian part of the group organized a local disco, where our cats did not lag behind in joy from the Kilimanjarian dances. The evening was lulled by a romantic sunset. And tomorrow will be a new day…

A guide of the 7 Summits Club Alexander Spirin reports from Tanzania:

Hello everyone from Africa!  Today, on the International Mountaineering Day, our program of climbing Kilimanjaro starts. To begin with, we visited two museums.  We spent an unforgettable hour in the snake museum: we saw black, green and other mambas, graceful cobras, beautiful pythons and other dangerous and not very dangerous snakes. As well as crocodiles of different models and turtles, the oldest of which is already a pensioner -75 years old is no joke. After that, we went to a cool museum dedicated to the culture and life of the Masai. It is very informative, especially the initiation of a man into warriors by circumcising his spear.  In the evening, a delicious dinner and congratulations on the mountaineering holiday were waiting for us at the hotel. The guides of the group are two Alexandrs: Abramov and Spirin.
