A guide of the 7 Summits Club Valery Myasoedov reports from Iran:

Our whole big group of different ages, of different characters, but united by one goal, successfully reached the top of Mount Demavend yesterday! The ascent was not easy. At first, everyone was rocking, walking at a slow pace, then, as they say, they woke up, gained cruising speed.  The second half of the climb was faster, which is quite rare. Just before the summit, a strong wind blew, not at all according to the forecast. He raised sulfur dust so that many people's eyes watered, but we overcame this discomfort as well. Almost simultaneously, with a difference of 15 minutes, the whole team pulled up to the top. Congratulations and a traditional photo shoot. But our young participants Misha and Sergey, who were 14 years old at the time of the ascent, received special compliments! How they worked on the route! How they grasped comments and tips on the go!  Well, it's just incredible, at such an age, and such efficiency, and dedication!

  The day turned out to be very difficult, almost a day on feet.  We agreed that we would strive to go down as low as possible on the day of the ascent, and if possible, then to Tehran. And we were able to do it! At three o'clock in the morning we checked into the cozy rooms of Espinas Palace, the best hotel in Tehran. A well-deserved finale of a difficult day and the whole program as a whole!  Today there will be an award ceremony and a farewell dinner at the Milod Tower, the best panoramic restaurant in Tehran.
