Alex Abramov, expedition leader: Today we held a Puja at the Base Camp. The entire team has consecrated equipment and souls that must climb Mount Everest. After lunch, we had a very useful lesson on the glacier on walking on the fixed ropes and stairs. The day after tomorrow, we planned the team's first climb  to Camp 6400. We are waiting for 50 stairs and 5 km of fixed ropes.

We use helicopters to transport fresh food and equipment from Kathmandu. Today, for dinner, the cooks baked us trout in foil. In the evening, we had a bard concert at the bar. All participants are very happy with the camp. We don't even want to leave it for climb.

Alexander Abramov from the Everest Base Camp: Today and tomorrow we finish building our base camp. It turns out beautifully. Good job, Sherpas! They are constantly working with a pickaxe and crowbar, breaking the ice and covering it with stones. The camp turned out to have a view of the summit of Mount Everest. By the way, the top is visible only from our camp. Because it stands slightly below the others.

Alexander Abramov from Everest Base Camp.  Yesterday, from Namche Bazaar, in 20 minutes, I and Lena Abramova, the manager of the base camp, flew by helicopter and landed right next to our tents. The Sherpas were happy to see us. We managed to check the sites of our camp, standing on the glacier. And then, under my guidance, we put up a large tent dining room eight meters in diameter.

Today we put up a bar of two American tents, ten sleeping tents, and a fence around our camp. We slept well. Our tents are as tall as a man. That is, two meters high, with an insulated layer and beds. Therefore, on the bed in a sleeping bag, covered with a blanket, it was very comfortable to sleep.

The first group of courses of the 7 Summits Club in preparation for climbing Mount Everest, Denali and in Antarctica has completed its work. On the final day, the team made an attempt to climb to the top of Elbrus. Due to the poor weather forecast, it was decided that it would be possible to limit the ascent to an altitude of about 5000 meters. The strong wind made reaching the summit too risky, and the conditions were quite harsh. See what the participants say about the course.

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.
