Alex Abramov from Elbrus region:  Today, the participants of the school of preparation for climbing Mount Everest, Denali, and Antarctica enthusiastically practiced all the necessary survival techniques on these mountains. These are: climbing on fixed ropes, pulling from crevasses, walking in snowshoes, setting up and protecting tents, cooking food. In the morning, all the girls, except for flowers and sweets, were given a snow shovel by the guides. In the evening, we celebrated the holiday on March 8 with champagne. Tomorrow, according to the plan, there will be an exit with tents on the glaciers of Elbrus for 2 days. We will learn how to set up a bivouac, build snow walls, heat snow and cook food, and even go to the toilet in bags. The day after tomorrow we will continue, we will have ice classes on real crevasses.

Hello everyone from Colombia! Last night we took a walk in the Tayrona National Park. We fed monkeys and iguanas, swam in the bays, dived and enjoyed the views. We arrived in Bogota late last night. We're flying home today. We really liked the country. Goodbye, Colombia! See you again!

Lyudmila Korobeshko the leader of the group:  Hello everyone from Colombia! Yesterday, our “Colombia Pictures” team successfully climbed  the summit of Tolima volcano with a height of 5220m. It was unforgettable!

A very beautiful peak! The ascent turned out to be diverse. You start with the jungle, then go through the paramo (high-altitude swamps), then moraines and end up in the glacier zone.

We were very lucky with the weather. On the night of the assault, it was warm and windless. We passed the dangerous rock section quickly with belay. And when we went out on the glacier, the dawn began and the views were stunning.  We were very impressed with the smoking active volcano Ruiz. At the top, we took a lot of photos and even almost made a landslide, jumping too much for the summit photo.

Today we went down to the beautiful green valley of Cocora with the tallest palm trees in the world. We are resting and preparing for a flight to the Caribbean coast, where we are waiting for a trek to the Lost City.

The 7 Summits Club is finalizing the formation of a team for 2021 Everest Climb. Our President Alexander Abramov  will lead an expedition to the world's highest mountain for the 19th time. Most likely, this is a world record! The main part of the group of climbers has long been known, since last year. We can say that the team will be quite large and diverse. Now there is still an opportunity to join it, as they say, "jump into the last car". Do not delay, as the deadline for issuing permits is running out! It should be noted that this year's expedition will have several distinctive features that make it more attractive for participants.

Features of the 2021 Everest expedition

 

**  We will climb from the South, from Nepal. Tibet will not be opened this spring. For those who went from the North, you can repeat, on a different, very different route. This is only the second expedition of the 7 Summits Club along the Southern Route, along the path of the first climbers, the legendary Hillary and Tenzing. And we can't say right now when we'll be back on this side of Mount Everest in the future.

 

**  Due to the pandemic, it is expected that there will be much fewer people than usual on the Everest trail and on the ascent itself. This is a rare chance on this route to get more natural emotions, not spoiled by the crowds of tourists and queues at difficult places during the ascent.

 

**  After a one-year break, the entire tourist infrastructure of Nepal will resume its work. All local residents, service workers, hoteliers, high-altitude porters and guides, all will be happy to see us in a special way. They will be more aware of the value of the guests and try even harder.

 

**  In the base camp and on a significant part of the route, the Everest expedition will work together with the 7 Summits Club expedition on Lhotse. There will be a lot of bright personalities in it, both among the guides and among the members. It will be a large and, we are sure, friendly team together.

Lyudmila Korobeshko:  Hello everyone from Colombia! This is Lyudmila Korobeshko. Our large and friendly group called “Colombia Pictures” gathered today in the capital of Colombia - Bogota. And immediately we had to pass the first quest – how to get to the hotel, which is located in the historical center. It turns out that Colombians are big fans of sports and outdoor activities. On Sundays, the city center is closed, and hundreds of cyclists and marathon runners rush through the streets. So we had to walk the last 500 m to the hotel. We even liked it. So, until the evening, we continued to walk around the city, even climbed Mount Montserrat. We visited almost all the graffiti, tried the chicha and ajiaco. We also took a cable car ride over the nighttime favelas of the southern outskirts of Bogota.

Thanks to our wonderful guide to Bogota - Tatiana Nechaeva!

Tomorrow we fly to the coffee plantations!

Sergey Larin, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Tanzania:  News from Kilimanjaro. Today, 16.02, the group Siafu moved from Baranko camp 3950m directly to Barafu camp 4600m with lunch at Karangu camp 4000m. We left at 8: 15 and arrived at 16: 00. This decision was made to increase the level of acclimatization of the team. Since there were already two overnight stays at 4000. Tomorrow we plan to move to the Kosovo camp, which is only 260m higher. Almost a day of rest…

Sergey Larin,  the guide of the group from Tanzania: The “Siafu” team news. Today, February 15, we moved from Camp Shira to Camp Baranko 4000m, via Lava Tower (4600m). There was lunch on Lava Taur. And after lunch, it rained heavily again. We went down to the Baranko camp along the rain rivers.  The descent reminded me of Papua New Guinea at times. I couldn’t remember such rains on Kilimanjaro.  I've never been here during the rainy season, though. Kilimanjaro is covered in snow. If this goes on, you'll see that the glaciers will recover.

Sergey Larin, a guide of the 7 Summits Club:  The group of the 7 Summits Club "Siafu" climbed yesterday to the Machame camp at an altitude of 2900 m. It rained all day, which was according the forecast. And quite unusual for February. At this time of year, I don't remember it raining  from the morning. But the rain did not affect the mood of the group. I am also glad that there are only three people on the route besides us. Which is also unusual for the peak of season. Today, 14.02, we continue to move to the Shira camp at an altitude of 3900 meters.

Hello! This is Chile, Atacama, Laguna Verde, Artem Rostovtsev with yesterday's news. The six of us climbed on the top of the Ojos del Salado volcano. It was cold, windy, snowy, and difficult. But we did it! Congratulations to all of us, and please be happy for us! The most important thing that I forgot to report in the previous news: our team is called "High-altitude Gourmets". We try to restrain ourselves in terms of food. But that's not possible. As our chef Lena cooks, it is impossible to resist. Once again, I report: the expedition is completed successfully, we have reached the top. Today we are getting out into civilization.
