The “Alexandra and Dot” team is almost ready for the final dash to the top of the Orizaba volcano. It remains tomorrow to have a good rest.

Artem Rostovtsev, the guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Mexico:

The team "Still haven't been named" reports from Mexico. We are finally on the slope of the goal of our expedition - the Orizaba volcano. Today there was a move transfer to the base camp and rest. We coped with both tasks perfectly. The problem was one - very tasty a lot and often fed. But it is also solved by a strong team. And this is exactly what we have gathered. Tomorrow we will go higher, to the glacier, look at the situation, and at the same time we will acclimatize before the decisive summit day.

Artem Rostovtsev, the guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Mexico:

 The team "Never named themselves" climbed the volcano La Malinche at a brisk acclimatization pace. Everyone would like such a smooth, correct weather, as we had today - it wouldn't freeze and wouldn't overheat. We walked up and down in a tight group, no one ran away, we didn't lose anyone. The most tired on their return to the hotel found the strength to restorative swim in the pool. Tomorrow we will finally feel Orizaba, we will get to the Base Camp on its slope.

Hello everyone  Kazbek, Refuge Meteostation, is in touch. Namely,  the group "Dog's heart". Today we all visited the top of Kazbek.

We walked compactly, we were all together at the top.  That's just the plan to escape down to Kazbegi that same day failed, the mountain left no strength. Tomorrow we will go down and celebrate our success.

Summit! The group of the 7 Summits Club made an ascent to the top of Mount Kazbek

The guides Rostovtsev Artem and Spirin Alexander reports from Georgia:

Midnight greeted us with a clear, starry sky - so you can go! Breakfast, final equipment check. On the way! A chain of glowing lanterns stretched along the slope.   The hospitable Meteostation released us into the embrace of the dark silhouettes of the Caucasus Mountains. In the silence of the night we keep our way to the Gergeti glacier. Peacefully creaking with crampons, we take the first, confident steps along this majestic glacier, in the direction of the Maili Plateau. Here is the long-awaited dawn, our frozen limbs are finally thawing, warmed by the gentle rays of the morning sun.  We traverse a steep slope. We work in ropes.  Safely bypass seraks, continue to move to the saddle. The first harbingers of impending bad weather appear: snow flags on the top, clouds rise and thicken - we have a few hours of weather window left. 

Ahead is the most difficult section to go through and start the descent before the storm.  Everyone tried, but only four managed to stand at the very top.  And then there was a difficult, long and exhausting descent to the Meteostation. At some point it seemed that the mountain did not want to let go ... a strong storm wind, horizontally flying snow that hit the eyes (even under glasses) and swept the trail, visibility close to zero complicated the search for the right path, even had to use navigators to pass safely, the last part of the descent was complicated by deep softened snow on the trail. Wet, tired, but happy, we returned to the Meteostation that had become our home. Hot soup, a warm dry sleeping bag and a sound sleep - this is what we have been dreaming about for the last hours. Your favorite guides are Artem Rostovtsev and Alexander Spirin.

Artem Rostovtsev, the guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Georgia:

The first in 2023 expedition of the 7 Summits Club to Mount Kazbek from Georgia began. We did not immediately rush to the slopes of the mountain. We took a walk first in the vicinity of the Gudauri resort. Today we went to the top of Sadzele (3250m). And only in the evening we found ourselves at the foot of Kazbek. The most difficult thing for everyone in the team is the abundance of delicious Georgian food, while it defeats us.

Artem Rostovtsev, the guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Nepal:

The group of Cats reached the Everest base camp. They scared us with winds, snow, and the weight of the lift, but we got there. We entered the camp with a beautiful, shiny, light gait. They were even waiting for us. The climbers themselves were waiting for Everest. We looked at them enviously all evening, they will touch the top of Everest! But, it seems, they also looked at us with envy, we are already down tomorrow. For some reason, the team's guide ran around all the camps on the Khumbu glacier before dinner, there is a whole city there. And the summit of Everest opened up to us!!!

Artem Rostovtsev, the guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Nepal:

 Peace, labor, May! A column of beautiful girls after a hearty breakfast opened the morning May Day demonstration in the town of Periche. Under the falling snow. The snow was coming from the very clouds and clouds that have been hiding the beauty of the Himalayas for the fourth day. So under the snow and partly with the wind we went all the way to Lobuche. We are no longer used to it. No one is frozen or wet, the snow is dry. And in the lodges, as always, we are the brightest, cheerful and not tired. Base camp wait for us tomorrow!

Artem Rostovtsev, the guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Nepal:

The Cat team moved from Deboche to Periche. We left the forest zone, passed the 4000m mark. We like the trail, we go merrily, the views are only hidden behind clouds again - we have to imagine the mountains around, and not look at them. But it's not scary, and what we saw is very impressive. A little more and we are at the Everest base camp!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The group of the 7 Summits Club "Cats" moved to the village of Debuche

Artem Rostovtsev, the super-guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Nepal:

 News from the Cats group. This morning we left Namche Bazaar. We have to go to the Everest base camp, they are waiting for us there. A good trail with beautiful landscapes, we followed it to Debuche. It's just a little disappointing that all the majestic beauties of the Himalayas were hidden by dense clouds. They did not give Tengboche a chance to admire the monastery either. Unexpected rain and hail drove us to the lodge, where we spend the night. Tomorrow, according to the program, there will be afternoon precipitation from the sky again. But we hope not to get wet - they should not be liquid even after our arrival at the next lodge. Everyone feels good. We figured out how fast (or rather slowly) we need to move so as not to spoil our well-being and mood, as well as how to treat the slight impact of altitude on us.

Artem Rostovtsev, the guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Nepal:

We are in the capital of the Sherpas - Namche Bazaar. In the morning, there was exercises, a delicious breakfast, in general, everything was fine at Yeti Mountain Home, thanks to us. In Namche, we also stayed at Yeti Home. We walked here for about 6 hours, just in time before the rain, which went almost according to schedule. The highlight of today's crossing is the Hillary Bridge. We had a person in our team who was excited just by the mention of this bridge. But while we got to him, we managed to fight their fears less on numerous bridges. In general, we are in Namche, we feel good, the next item of the program is an acclimatization walk to the Everest view hotel.

- How to get to the Everest base camp?

- You should first go to Kathmandu airport, from there fly to Lukla, and best of all by helicopter. So the "Cats" team arrived early this morning. Then everything is standard - with your feet on the path towards the Phakding. No more on the first day. Everyone is absolutely delighted with both the helicopter flight and the walk along the trail, the views around are amazing. We didn't have time to get tired, so before dinner we worked up an appetite in a hill to a nearby monastery. And in general, we have a lot of fun.
