Nikita Slotin, the guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Kyrgyzstan:

Our group made a second attempt to climb the peak of 7134 m. The forecast has not been very good for several days! A chance to climb to the top is possible for a sports-trained group. On August 15 at 3:30, when the wind is least according to the forecast, we leave Camp-3. Many groups went out to climb on this day. But around 7-8 in the morning, the groups turn around, we try to go further. The wind, about 35 km / h, does not knock you down, but you have to fight, snowfall, creating visibility of no more than 25 meters. Experience and patience - let's move on. We pass the knife by 11-12 o'clock in the afternoon, everything is covered with fresh snow, we have to trail...

By 13:30 we reach the beginning of the ascent to the plateau, the height is 6850. Visibility is even worse, we are guided by rocky chain. We make an informed decision to turn around and go down, for a number of significant reasons. Tired, exhausted, we got to Camp-3, moved into tents and sleep.... Today we went down to Camp-1, the participants got acquainted with the avalanche danger closer than we would like, a small board came down over the "Frying Pan"... It's snowing in the Camp 1 now. The mountain shows itself! Treat the mountains with respect and awe...

Nikita Slotin, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Kyrgyzstan:

Our group made an attempt to climb Lenin Peak. The wind forecast for 6500 promised 30 km/h, but in real life at 6200 the wind was so strong that we were thrown down the slope.  We decided to go down to the third camp. Tomorrow the forecast is a little better, we will try again.  But the gap in the weather for the next few days is not visible at all! The weather changes every day and what we see on the websites, unfortunately, does not correspond to reality! And now we're playing a guessing game. The mountain shows character and does not allow climbers.

Hello everyone from the height of 5700!  Yesterday our group went up to the Second camp! At first there was a difficult section of the 100-meter fixed ropes, where the participants had to exert all their strength. Then, on the "Frying Pan", we walked hard in the heat and got to the camp for lunch! We were greeted by a comfortable camp, with a large dome tent as a dining room. Now we are already moving to the peak of Razdelnaya! The strongest participants are ahead, the girls and I are having fun slowly, dancing, going up, admiring the butterflies flying by.

Nikita Slotin, guide of the 7 Summits Club from Chile: Greetings to all from Chile from the Black Caps group!  Today we have made the second attempt to climb the highest volcano in the world! But a good forecast wasn't enough and everything didn't go according to plan... We left at 22:00 for the shelter Tejos, spent as much as 4 hours because of the deep snow. Only 2:00 a.m. we went out to storm! Everything went well at first. But we had to interrupt the ascent at an altitude of 6400 meters. At this point, another group caused an avalanche. We realized that the way ahead was dangerous. There are no casualties, the avalanche passed us by! After that, we decided to go down, the mountain did not let us in again, but it taught us a lot! Now we are going to the ocean shore to rest from the snow. The participants are happy to finally return to civilization.

Although, judging by the snow on the mountain, you can't say that! A few days ago we settled in the Laguna Verde camp, conducted acclimatization rotation and went out to storm tonight! None of us expected knee-deep snow! For 12 hours we walked through deep and crumbly snow and at an altitude of 6400, the harsh conditions forced us to turn back... There is more and more snow on the mountain every day! Today we are resting, and continue to enjoy the views of the desert.
