Sergey Avtomonov, a guide of the 7 Summits Club: A new group arrived in Ararat today and due to the delay in departure, we left for Dogubayazit immediately after the airport. We had lunch there and went to the base camp. We managed to get there before dark, at dusk. After all, we usually arrive earlier, but in general everything went fine. We had a delicious dinner and celebrated the birthday of one of the participants. Tomorrow we will go for acclimatization rotation.
