Boris Egorov, the guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Peru:

So, our small persistent team climbed 750 vertical meters of one of the largest walls in Latin America. In the middle of the afternoon of September 2, we were standing on top of a granite hulk called the Sphinx, 5325m high.

The weather was on the verge, the whole ascent was covered with clouds and sometimes with snow. Despite this, it took us less than eight hours to get to the top. I spent quite a lot of time in these places and I know that it took us much less time than other sports teams, despite such a setback with the weather. The fitness of all participants affects not only physically, but also the coherence of actions, as well as competent acclimatization.

This is our third wall with participant Alexey and we do not intend to stop, further – more and more interesting! Well, now we are moving to Lima for a well-deserved rest on the ocean.

P.S. We need to check, but perhaps we are the first team from Russia who climbed this wall.

The group of the 7 Summits Club worked well on the rocks, but unpleasant news was waiting for them at the bottom

So, as a final preparation, our small team spent the night in the Llaca Valley in a shelter at an altitude of 4500 meters. The next morning we climbed a multi-pitch with a pleasant climbing on a granite wall. The whole route was led by our friend Alexey! We moved very quickly and smoothly. It's good when the team is solidary and we already understand each other half a word. Unfortunately, when we went down and got in touch, the news came that blocked the road to our main goal, Mount Sphinx. And now we can only wait and hope that the blockage will be cleared and we will be able to make the ascent. While we are resting, we are thinking about a backup plan, for example, to go another fivethousander, trample the snow with crampons.

The team of the 7 Summits Club held a session of high-altitude rock climbing in the area called "Stone Forest"

The preparatory part of the program continued in an amazing place! At an altitude of 4300m, the Khatun Machai rock climbing zone "stone forest" is located, an incredible variety of terrain and lines for climbing. But we agreed that it doesn't look much like a forest, rather like some kind of animal park, where every stone can be imagined alive, or sculptures given. Perhaps, at the moment, this is the highest mountain region where we were engaged in rock climbing. And the most fantastic. But it is not easy to move actively at such a height. The difficulty doubles. We continue to get used to the height. There are plans to move to 4500 in order to spend the night at altitude and also climb, but already a long route of five ropes.

Two days of travel and we finally reached the mountains. Now we are in the town of Huaraz in northern Peru. The active phase of the program has begun. Today was already the first training session on the rocks on the outskirts of the city. We didn't climb anything  difficult, but the task is different: to disperse the blood and get used to the loads at altitude. Today we climbed at an altitude of 3000, and tomorrow we will visit a very interesting and beautiful place where we will continue to warm up, but already at an altitude of more than 4000 meters.

There is another very famous place in the vicinity of Cusco in Peru: the Rainbow Mountains. They are named so, of course, precisely because all the mountains there are painted with minerals in all the colors of the rainbow. And what is important for us, the height of the observation deck exceeds 5000m. We admire the views and continue acclimatization.

This is the end of the cultural program and the next day we start moving north. First to the capital, to the city of Lima. Let's go down to the ocean level and relax on the beach.

Continuation of the Peruvian adventures. Our small friendly company today continued to explore the legacy of the Inca Empire.  At the same time, we finally managed to disperse the blood. We ran down to the mountain of Huayna Picchu 2667m. The ascent took us only half an hour, although the trail goes up the steps steeply. Perhaps we could have done it faster, but we had to carefully overtake other tourists and, of course, we took a lot of photos. From the top there is a gorgeous view of the entire Machu Picchu complex. Then the day passed quietly in the village, where we had to wait for the evening train. And already on the way back, right in the carriage, they arranged a small performance with dancing and a fashion show, alpaca wool products. Tomorrow, according to the plan, a new climb, we are going to admire the rainbow mountains.

A new unusual program for Alexey Sivkov, our friend and a very versatile climber, has started today in the capital of the Inca Empire, the city of Cuzco. The city is located at an altitude of 3400m, so we immediately began to acclimatize, and we really need a good habit of altitude. Ambitious plans! We are going to have a serious ascent of the huge granite wall in the Cordillera Blanca, Mount Sphinx (La Esfinge). But this is later, but for now we absorb the history of the ancient country, look at the sights and eat up for the future. Today we spent several hours exploring the ancient buildings of the Incas, climbed wherever you can climb and tasted delicious ceviche and alpaca steaks.

We went on an excursion to see how salmon is bred. And for dinner we had delicious fish with vegetables from the local vegetable garden. We met an amazing hostess who was happy to answer numerous questions about farming and local life. In the evening we sat by the fireplace, laughed a lot and loudly, playing "contact". Tomorrow we will go to the base camp of Mount Wilhelm.

A whole pig was cooked especially for us.  In the traditional way in the ground, overlaid with banana leaves and red-hot stones. This method is called mumu. They also dressed up in festive clothes for us and arranged male and female dances. We were led through the sacred place of the village. Despite the fact that the entire population is Christians, they still keep the skulls of ancient warriors and worship them.

And finally the adventure in Papua for the next big group began. They called themselves "Stars in boots"!!

Boris Egorov, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Papua New Guinea:

Greetings from Papua New Guinea! Our cultural program continues in this country. The day began with a trip to a special place in the jungle, on a photo hunt for local birds. We were lucky to see an unusual feathered creature with a long, beautiful white tail, which is even depicted on the flag of PNG. After that we visited a new village, where we were shown how to cook the national dish mumu. To do this, first small stones are heated in the fire, and then vegetables and meat are laid in layers in the pit, interspersed with banana leaves. While the food was languishing in the ground, we watched the female and male dances and got acquainted with some of the customs of this tribe. Finally, after this, we tasted the food, delicious! Well, in the evening, chess and preference are already traditional.

Tomorrow we will continue to explore the customs of the indigenous population, and we hope to finish our game of cards.

Boris Egorov, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Mexico:

Long-awaited news from Mexico. Yesterday at two o'clock in the afternoon our team climbed the last rope of the huge wall, it is called El Gigante.  It was an incredible adventure! Three and a half days of continuous vertical movement, three nights suspended on inflatable platforms. There were practically no places on our route where you could at least stand, they were hanging in safety systems all the time. The rock is very wild, there is no one around, we have not seen a soul during the entire ascent. But it turned out to be absolutely detached from everything in the world, there were only us, the wall and our multi-kilogram trunks, which we dragged up after us. There are only a few such ascents in the world, and even more so in such exotic places. (Even just to get under the wall, we needed local guides with machetes). Of course, this is not our first rock adventure with Alexey and Zhenya, but we are experiencing such difficulty and danger for the first time. And such an event will be all the more memorable. Guides Boris Egorov and Vladimir Murzaev.
