Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Pakistan:
Today is July 15th. Broad Peak. Pakistan. 8056 m . Having successfully carried out acclimatization, we went down from Camp 2 to Base Camp on the 13th. It is on the 13th that Volodya Kotlyar, who performs a secret mission on K2, has a birthday. Two base camps, Broad Peak and K2, came to congratulate him. He turned 34 years old. The limit of youth that he had set for himself. Now adult life begins. Volodya, a great voyage for a big ship!
The weather in Pakistan does not allow us to think about the future yet. All the slopes were covered with snow. The snow has fallen even in BC. We are all sitting in tents. We read books, watch movies, make love. Who has what opportunities....

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

News of the expedition on Broad Peak: The weather in Karakorum is over, everyone is waiting

Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Pakistan:
There is no Internet here, neither satellite nor mobile. The whole sky is overcast. It's raining. Luda and I spent a night in Camp 2. And today, under the roar of avalanches and the howling of blizzards, we were able to descend to the base camp of Broad Peak. Today is July 13th. Since July 17th, everyone here expects good weather. I have a different opinion. The weather in Pakistan this year is not encouraging. There are still no fixed ropes to the top of Broad Peak. And on K2 in general, ropes were hung only up to camp 3.

 

 

 

 

Alexander Abramov and Lyudmila Korobeshko came to the base camp of expeditions on Broad Peak

Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club, from Pakistan:
We came to the base camp of expeditions on Broad Peak. This is already good news. The bad news is that so far not a single person has climbed Broad Peak. Today, Furtenbach's team has already gone home after an summit attempt. It ended a little above Camp 3 due to the large amount of snow and no fixed ropes.
It looks like Lyuda and I came just in time. Everything is just beginning.... By the way, the food here is excellent. And the camp is very comfortable.

News from the group "Forward to the past" from Iran from the summit of Damavand, 5670m. Today the team, consisting of 11 participants and 5 guides, heroically ascended on the summit. A lot of impressions. The weather was great. We were lucky.  We started around 7 am. There were clouds of sulfur near the top, because this is an active volcano. And at 19:30 all the participants went down to the shelter. The whole team is happy! This year, the 7 Summits Club has many groups in Iran. The people here are wonderful, the attitude towards us is excellent. And the mountain is great. Come here! Guides Alexander and Denis Abramov.

Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club, the group's guide, reports from Iran:

This morning we woke up and boldly moved towards the goal of our acclimatization hike: the Tochal Mountain 4000m.  The top has been reached. And then the weather turned bad, it almost snowed. Therefore, a quick descent to Tehran was necessary.

But in Tehran, two fully cooked sheep were waiting for us. And a toast for the successful ascent. True, everyone was clinking glasses with what they could: juice, ayran, water and delicious non-alcoholic beer.

Tomorrow we will move to the hot springs, to warm clogged muscles and joints battered by climbing.

A new program of the 7 Summits Club of climbing Demavend has started today in Iran. Two Abramovs will be guides: Alexander and Denis (son). The command is called "Back to the Future". The team members and I walked through the "hot spots" of Tehran. These are the markets, the palaces of the Iranian shahs and ended the evening with dinner on a TV tower.

Everyone is delighted with the country. Especially from beer with 0.0% alcohol of lemon and apricot flavor. Generally, in Iran, the people are wonderful, the food is very tasty.

Tomorrow, according to the plan, we have an acclimatization ascent to the mountain Tochal 4000m and an overnight stay at an altitude of 3700 m.

Yes... now we live in the best presidential hotel in Tehran.

 The expedition is coming to an end. The entire program of acclimatization and climbing Mount Everest was completed in 30 days. It's fast. Firstly, it is an experience of organizations.

We are already in the Camp 1 at 6000 m. We walked fast, someone for 8 hours, I - for 9.5. The first time the group went 13-19 hours. This is probably the result of acclimatization, although the path does not feel easier. Heat. Not a little wind. I want to sleep now, but it's hot everywhere. It was a good lunch, we are waiting for dinner. I'm going to take a nap, tomorrow the move to the Second camp. We have satellite Internet with us. Expensive, but we are in touch.
