The guide of the 7 Summits Club Valery Myasoedov reports from Iran:
Greetings from Iran! The Children of Arbat group has reached the final stage of the Damavand climbing program. We are going to storm early tomorrow morning. The weather is windy, especially the wind increases by the middle of the day, so we are planning a slightly earlier start than usual. The day before, before climbing from the Mosque to the camp at 4,200 m, we interviewed a local aksakal, the respected Uncle Hassan. He always helps us with the transfer from Larijan to the Mosque in his old jeep, and at 65 he radiates inexhaustible optimism. Then, at a good pace, we went up to the camp and settled in the best "apartments". Then the culinary masterpieces from our chef Marjon began, which we never stop marveling at: baked chicken, stuffed fish, salad bar... The participants unanimously celebrate the excellent service on the mountain from our partners. After such care and such an organization, tomorrow we have no right to let anyone down.
