Summit! The group of the 7 Summits Club made a successful ascent on the summit of the Orizaba Volcano!

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Lyubov Ivanova: Summit! On January 8th at 10:30 am we were at the top. The group left the glacier 5000 m at 7 am.  After 2.5 hours, everyone was on the top, the first Natasha Sklyar!  The descent from the summit was also made in record time: 2 hours from the top to the upper camp at 4650 m. I must say that the weather has been seriously scaring us all these days, and there was a snowfall (hail) and a thunderstorm in earnest. And not a very good forecast, even from the Oso itself, for the night of the ascent.  But our team went into battle without hesitation and doubt, and reached the top in the shortest possible time!  I recommend all participants without exception for further ascents with the 7 Summits Club.

Despite the diversity of the group, we all got up very cheerfully - less than four hours.   We sat on the top, took pictures and went down in two and a half hours. In the evening we arrived at the Zaapan shelter, our hotel. And tomorrow we will move very slowly and calmly to base camp 4200.

Hello everyone and Happy New Year from North America! A group of five participants is located somewhere in the vastness of Mexico on the way to the highest volcano on the continent - Orizaba Peak (5636 m). On the way to the volcanoes, they get to know Mexico, its culture, history and, of course, gastronomy. The guide Lyubov Ivanova, an expert on Mexico, an ethnographer and an expert on ancient Indian culture, helps them to immerse themselves in the culture of the country.

  The team members walked around the historic center of Mexico City and the colorful Santo Angel district. They walked through the streets of colonial Puebla, the capital of the eponymous state of Mexico. And of course, they visited the largest pyramid in the world, Cholula. This pyramid with a cathedral on top against the background of volcanoes is one of the most photographed places in Mexico.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chimborazo was in a really bad mood. Participants of the 7 Summits Club programs were unable to climb to its top due to snowfall

News from Ecuador. Today was a responsible day - the day of the assault on the Chimborazo volcano (6310 m). It wasn't easy! A blizzard and a lot of freshly fallen snow. Nikolai Kirillov reached the height of 5800 m . Alexander Rykov went up ... read more

News from Ecuador. Today was a responsible day - the day of the assault on the Chimborazo volcano (6310 m). It wasn't easy! A blizzard and a lot of freshly fallen snow. Nikolai Kirillov reached the height of 5800 m . Alexander Rykov went up to a high-altitude camp and stopped to spend the night there. There was a heavy snowfall and no one went out on the mountain at night.

 Now everyone is already down in the valley and in a good mood they are returning to civilization.

Summit! The members of the group of the 7 Summits Club climbed Mount Kilimanjaro

A short report about today’s climb from father and son Alexander and Andrey: We started from the assault camp (4600) today at 0.15. And we successfully climbed Kilimanjaro (5895 meters) at 6.17 am at the top.  The guides said it was just a great result. We met the dawn right at the peak. From 6.30 to 7.30 we visited the glacier. I have never seen such beauty. They don't usually go to him, since no one has the strength after climbing Kilimanjaro. But, we couldn't put the Russian Mountaineering Federation to shame: we went to it and returned to the assault camp by 9.20.

Thank you to everyone who supported!  Ascent (and descent) was very difficult, and I really remembered your parting words from the manager of the 7 Summits Club! I thought it would be much easier, but the weather has made its own corrections.

Lilia Fedorova about climbing Orizaba, the highest volcano in North America, 5636 m, Mexico

I made it!!! I can't even believe it myself! Mount Orizaba (5636 m) is taken!!! I returned from heaven to earth (from Mexico) and finally had the strength and time to tell. On November 6, starting at 2 a.m., our team of 11 people, led by ... read more

I made it!!!  I can't even believe it myself! Mount Orizaba (5636 m) is taken!!! I returned from heaven to earth (from Mexico) and finally had the strength and time to tell. On November 6, starting at 2 a.m., our team of 11 people, led by the super-guides of the 7 Summits Club, climbed Mount Orizaba from a height of 4700 m.

It's very cool to be above the clouds. Nature is majestic, powerful and magnificent, and you are a grain of sand. It is difficult to convey in censored words how hard it was, mountain sickness (although we were acclimatized from November 1), a very long, steep, hard snow climb (we walked with a rope, in crampons with ice axes). Even experienced climbers said that physically it was easier on Elbrus, because there was a place to sit down to rest.

When I realized that I could no longer lift my legs, I asked them to drill me into the snow with an ice pick and pick me up on the way back, but - it is impossible, they said there is not much left, we need to walk!

 I got to the top only thanks to the guides, namely:

- Sergey Larin, who was always there, managed, supported and helped, while he managed to keep trek of the whole team;

- Julio, the local guide, who took my backpack;

- and also to the spouse who started all this, provided and prepared;

- to the daughter who said, "Mom, you have to walk";

- and to everyone I love!

 I don't know if I'm ready for such madness yet?  But I had to get out of my comfort zone, everyday life and shake myself up. I was somehow offended by the phrase: "There are a lot of smart people, but there are few brave ones"!

News from Ecuador from the slopes of the highest peak - Chimborazo (6310 m)! Today there was a day of the assault for Boris Manevich and guide Franklin. The weather decided to surprise and show how it can be different in Ecuador. This time there was a lot of snow, wind and snow rain - a fairly common natural phenomenon in Ecuador. Not the most optimal conditions for climbing! Under these conditions, the climbers reached the level of 5700 m . Now they are resting already downstairs. Chimborazo is not an easy peak.

Two days ago Boris Manevich climbed on the top of Iliniza Norte, 5126 m. After the descent, he had a day of rest and excursions in the Quilotoa crater lake area. Lake Quilotoa is one of the most beautiful places in South America, located in the Ecuadorian Andes. An amazing and original corner created by nature itself. It was formed here as a result of a strong volcanic eruption about 800 years ago. Locals believe that the lake has no bottom, but geologists estimate its depth at 250 meters.

Climbing in Ecuador by Boris Manevich. Today is the second day of acclimatization, climbing the volcano from the Pichincha group. Rucu Pichincha (4698 m) hangs over Quito, it can be called a home volcano.  Stunning panoramas of the city open from its slopes. For greater comfort and time saving, you can climb to a height of 4200 m by the Teleferico cable car. The ascent was made in a sporty style. We left the hotel at 9.00 and already had lunch there at 15.00. There's still a free evening left to do something interesting! Tomorrow we say goodbye to Quito and drive towards the main volcanoes.

 Boris Manevich travels according to the program of the Gornyashka project of the 7 Summits Club - climbing with local guides.

The results of Fyodorov Konyukhov's expedition on Ararat. A team of friends and relatives of Fyodor Konyukhov was assembled in the amount of 20 people. The goal is to climb the legendary biblical peak of Ararat (5165 m) and have a good time. Results: the ascent was completed by all participants, on August 19, 2021 at 9.00 the team stood on the top of Ararat with a full team. We started the assault in three groups to climb later all together, which was done. The time for sincere conversations, memories of past expeditions and discussion of new plans flies by unnoticed. It is very likely that the next goal of the team will be the highest volcano in Asia - Demavend in Iran.

 

 

Now we are returning to Van to sum up the results, reward the participants for their perfect ascent and celebrate this event.

See you on mountains! Guides Alexander Abramov, Sergey Avtomonov, Anastasia Kuznetsova.
