Artem Rostovtsev, a guide of the 7 Summits Club from Nepal: The second small group from the 7 Summits Club Everest expedition (Ekaterina Kalabukhova, Artem Rostovtsev + 4 Sherpas) has reached its goal. Early in the morning on the first day of summer, we climbed on the top of Mount Everest.  We had to endure a little, a little more than a week, bad weather in Camp-2 at an altitude of 6500m. But we managed to hold the strength. The weather after that gave only one and a half fine days, which we took advantage of.

Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club from Nepal: Greetings from the Everest 2021 team from the slopes of Chomolungma! For the last few days, we've been completely out of touch with the outside world.  We found high-altitude acclimatization along the famous slopes of Mount Everest: the Khumbu Icefall, the Valley of Silence, the Lhotse Wall... We've been everywhere more than once. The team has fulfilled the acclimatization plan - we have a high-altitude overnight stay in the third camp (7100 m). Now we go down to rest.

Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club from Nepal:  News of the Everest-2021 expedition. Huge greetings to all! Over the past three days, we made an important acclimatization rotation and consolidated our success with an overnight stay in the Camp-2 at 6500m. There is no way to bypass the Khumbu icefall on the way up and down, there is only one way. And this path changes every day, the glacier creeps about a meter a day, and sometimes the seraks fall... While we were climbing, everyone was a little worried, but everything went smoothly. Overnight stays at 6100 and 6500 are a credit to us, and now a well-deserved rest in the base camp.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The "Everest" group of the expedition of the 7 Summits Club "Everest-Lhotse 2021" postponed the acclimatization rotation due to the movement on the Khumbu glacier

Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club from Nepal: Last night we planned to go up to Camp 6000 and the next day to Camp 6400. That's just the plan with the rotation exit failed, as late in the evening the Khumbu icefall moved a ... read more

 Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club from Nepal:  Last night we planned to go up to Camp 6000 and the next day to Camp 6400. That's just the plan with the rotation exit failed, as late in the evening the Khumbu icefall moved a little. The prepared route was partially destroyed and required repairs from a team of Icefall Doctors.

As a result, we did not go out at night, but already in the light and just with an introductory task. We only looked at the icefall, tried it a little, and then returned to the camp. At night, we go according to yesterday's plan, already knowing a little what awaits us.

 The group "Lhotse 8516" led by Lyudmila Korobeshko also goes up tomorrow. Today they held ice classes, and after lunch they rested and prepared for the upcoming exit.

Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club, Everest 2021 Expedition, from Nepal: Lobuche is a mountain, the Eastern peak of which is 6119 meters high. To climb it on the way to the Everest base camp, it was in our plans. But it turned out that the weather made its own plans without coordinating with ours. Yesterday we went up to the assault camp, where we were covered with snowfall, instead of the predicted strong wind. The snow continued early in the morning, and we had to postpone the ascent. Until better times. We went downstairs. And now it's winter all around. We have the main goal ahead - Everest.  In the meantime, we have a plan to arrive at Everest base camp tomorrow.

Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club: Greetings from the Everest-2021 group! We woke up today with a beautiful view of Ama Dablam and hit the road. It seemed that it would be cold, but the whole day was again cloudless and the sun was shining. Again, the beautiful majestic Himalayan peaks were shown from all sides. To be honest, I'm tired of answering the team's questions: "What mountain is this? And where is this mountain? "By the way, a few words about our team. So far, in general terms. The team consists of 15 people, three guides, 8 climbers and 4 climbers. Representatives of 4 countries: Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Israel and Uzbekistan.

Today we spend the night at an altitude of 4920 m, in Lobuch. Before dinner, we went to check out just above 5000 m, at the same time to look at the base camp of Everest, from afar.

Artem Rostovtsev, a guide of the expedition from Nepal: Greetings from the Everest-2021 group! We are climbing higher and higher, at the same time closer to Everest. Today we passed an endless number of panoramic points with views of many mountains, including Mount Everest. But Everest was usually hidden behind cloud cover. Opposite, views of Ama Dablam pleased us almost all walking day. The weather changes like usually in the mountains, suddenly and dramatically. But so far it is predictable:  it is good until lunch, then – precipitation start. Precipitation is still wet, not snowy, so we try to move in the first half of the day. Today, on the way, we looked into the Tengboche Monastery, someone to take a look, someone for the blessing of our expedition. Tomorrow we will continue our route "higher and closer".
