 This morning, the ascent on the summit of Mount Everest was made by members of the 8000 Club group Adrian Ahritculesei (Romania), Denis Grachev, Sergey Mikhalev and Konstantin Simon. Now this group, together with Viktor Volodin, spends the night in Camp 2 at an altitude of 6500. Alex Abramov's group went up to the assault camp and was already supposed to go on the ascent. Dmitry Moskalev also went up to the assault camp. But he has a different aim and a different camp. He must go out to storm the summit of Lhotse. Good luck to everyone!

On May 8, 2024, a historic chess tournament was held at the Everest base camp, which was attended by professional chess players and amateurs, climbers and walkers, Russians and Nepalese. It is very important that the competition was held according to all sports rules, under the close supervision of professional referee Sergey Moiseev. The parties had a very strict time limit, but they were not only recorded, but also broadcast over the Internet. All possible difficulties were overcome, and in the end we got an event that we at the 7 Summits Club have the right to be proud of.

The Arctic stage of the record-breaking Transglobal Car expedition has been successfully completed. The participants reached Greenland

The 7 Summits Club congratulates our friends and comrades from the Transglobal Car expedition on completing the Arctic stage of their record-breaking route! We remind you that one of the authors of the idea and initiator of the project is the President of the 7 Summits Club, Alexander Abramov, who took part in the first stage – a run through the northern regions of the United States. He was not allowed to enter Canada in a sneaky way, canceling his valid visa right at the border without reason.

   The Arctic stage began on February 8, when the team left the Canadian town of Yellowknife. On February 22, the expedition left solid ground and entered the ice of the Arctic Ocean. A team consisting of 13 people went on a route on all-terrain vehicles "Ymelya". On April 6, the North Pole was reached and the expedition turned south towards Greenland. On May 10, the shore of this largest island in the world was reached. Further along the way, our expedition was accompanied by the Danish military, who demanded non-stop movement to the final point of the Arctic stage of the Nord Station military base. April 11 was the final day. In 80 days of a unique, record-breaking crossing, the expedition covered a distance of 6141 km.

 

 

 

  Vasily Shakhnovsky, the final message of the Arctic stage of the expedition:

As I expected, we were forbidden to take photos and videos at the base. They collected passports and conducted a full-fledged search of cars for weapons. Vaudeville developed in parallel with our departure. The police insisted that we leave Greenland as soon as possible. As a result, in exchange for agreeing to leave today, they will help us with putting the cars in order.

  In the end, 6 people are leaving today: Badulin, Safonov, Zaitsev, Andrew, Gavrilov and I. The remaining six are Elagin, Vankov, Ershov, Obihod, Dubinin and Larin. They stay for one day, put the cars in order and put them on conservation and fly to Svalbard tomorrow. There will be no photos of the base. But I want to say that the order here is perfect. Despite all the fears, in the end everything was agreed. We are sitting now, waiting for the plane.

  We took off safely and landed in Svalbard two hours later.

 

We stopped to take a collective photo against the background of Yemelyas.

The 7 Summits Club has always been at the forefront of the technical development of the Everest base camp. The first attempt to conduct Internet broadcasts from a high-altitude base was carried out back in 2006. These are already legends. A new step has been taken this year. High-speed Internet has reached not only the base camp, but also Camp 2 at 6600. We get an absolutely television picture from the base camp. A fantasy that has become reality.

Ivan Dusharin was an amazing man. He is always friendly and considerate, and at the same time an outstanding organizer, an authoritative leader. An engineer-inventor, a technician, and at the same time the author of books full of poetic attitude to mountains, to nature, to the fate of man. He has never been among the stars of mountaineering, but any athlete can envy his achievements.

 The 7 Summits Club has always been proud of its friendship with this outstanding man. And especially by the fact that he worked for us periodically as a guide.  We also remember our joint ascents of Mount Everest, Ojos del Salado and Vinson. And, of course, our joint record-breaking campaign "Seven Summits - in less than a year”, in 292 days. This is still the record for the speed of climbing all the highest peaks of the continents by one team. Only singles walked faster.

The Transglobal Car Expedition continues despite the fact that one of its leaders, Alexander Abramov, had to leave it for a while due to the lawlessness of the Canadian authorities.  On March 21, the team covered 63 kilometers across the ice of the Arctic Ocean and got 55 kilometers closer to the pole. Now there are less than 700 km to the North Pole! The expedition set up camp at 83 degrees 47” north latitude. Fuel supplies are expected to be received from the air here.

 In general, the pace of progress has been stable over the past 10 days, thanks to the ice reconnaissance service. Only a couple of days were hampered by the lack of visibility and ice hummocks. One day there was a need to stop for a small repair. In general, cars do not fail.

The Transglobal Car Expedition continues despite the fact that one of its leaders, Alexander Abramov, had to leave it for a while due to the lawlessness of the Canadian authorities.

March 1–5, 2024

We've left Resolute, Nunavut, the last community on our route before the North Pole. It was hard. We have to have everything we need for two to three months! But we are ready.

 166km achieved on the way to the North Pole, which is a really good pace. A few bits of difficult ice, but we think our satellite and radar images are helping a lot.

 March 6–10, 2024

We had interesting days working on our vehicles with the windbreak of the abandoned Isachsen weather station. We took breaks by exploring the buildings, but of course leaving everything intact as we found it. We also took a terrific trip a few km away to see a C-47 that crashed in 1949 with all eight on board suffering only minor injuries. A haunting but beautiful icon in the white desert.

 Then we got our first real taste of pack ice and open leads. There was a good amount of ice chipping to make a route over the pressure ridges, then we got to an open water lead that we were planning to cross - getting the boat ready - but it opened so much wider and so quickly that we elected to look for another route.

The Transglobal Car Expedition continues despite the fact that one of its leaders, Alexander Abramov, had to leave it for a while due to the lawlessness of the Canadian authorities.

 From the Diary:

February 28-29, 2024

We were prepared for big challenges on the ice, but by good planning from our ice team and great images and data from Siku.org, we were able to navigate to relatively good flat ice with only a handful of difficult pressure ridges.

 On the Day 50 we've covered just over 200km incredibly fast. We had to cross a couple of large pressure ridges including with the fording ladders - a really technical challenge.

 However, we made it to Resolute Bay in early afternoon on February 29. We will spend a couple of days here in the lodge doing small repairs then head north. This will be the last community we will see for about two months until we cross over the North Pole and get to the south end of Greenland. There were great days with some very smooth ice and only one small mechanical issue. The team stopped northwest of King William Island near the coordinates where the Franklin Expedition ships were beset by ice for two winters and eventually abandoned in 1848. We observed a moment of silence for the lost 129 men and flew the Explorers Club flag.

On February 22, at 14: 00, the Transglobal team of 13 people on all-terrain vehicles "Emelya" started from Cambridge Bay in the direction of Resolute Bay and further to the North Pole. Thus, began the Arctic stage of the Transglobal expedition. The team mastered the technique, overcoming the first kilometers of the route in difficult conditions, with strong winds and almost zero visibility in the white haze. They had to do some maintenance on the trailers along the way, but overall, everything is going well. The satellite image shows that gray, uneven ice awaits ahead, which means slow driving. We inflated the tires manually to prepare for icing.

The first stage of the expedition was by car and ended in the settlement of Cambridge Bay in the far north of Canada. Here the team received a warm, cordial welcome - the local authorities staged a real celebration. The cars from here set off on their way back, and the expedition transferred to Emel's all-terrain vehicles.

The Transglobal Car Expedition continues despite the fact that one of its leaders, Alexander Abramov, had to leave it for a while due to the lawlessness of the Canadian authorities.

The Canadian town of Yellowknife has long been a landmark for the expedition. After all, it meant the completion of the first stage of the global journey, the "USA – Canada" stage. Here, in the last great stronghold of civilization, the team spent more than 10 days. It was impossible otherwise, it was necessary to thoroughly prepare for the most difficult and problematic part of the entire super route, the "Arctic" stage. In Yellowknife, in particular, they bought a large amount of frozen fish, traditional for polar travel.

The team left Yellowknife on the morning of February 8th. After about 100 kilometers, the trees finally disappeared, the expedition came into the untouched tundra. There are no roads here anymore. They drove a little more and set up camp just in the middle of a snowy desert. This was the beginning of the second stage.

In the following days, the target was the village of Nunavut. The cars got stuck in deep snow several times, and we had to use winches.

There were sunny, beautiful days in the Arctic tundra, and by evening the temperature dropped to -32 °C. All participants are in a good mood – the main team is heading to the meeting place with Yemeli's team. On February 11, the expedition crossed the Arctic Circle. It's very serious.…

Which is more suitable: 3 by 20 or 2 by 30? The man seems to be in the prime of his physical and intellectual powers. That means two by thirty. On the other hand, there is youthful enthusiasm, lightness and indefatigability on the face. How can all this be combined with the number 60? Yes, it's just a start to new records, to the title of "most-most" in another "weight" category. We wish our captain new victories, ideas, desires and opportunities! Good luck, heavenly mercy, weather on request, happiness in all respects!

Andrey Muravyov, a participant in several of our programs, sent us a message from far away Australia. There, by climbing Kosciuszko Mountain, he successfully completed the "Seven Summits" program, climbing all the highest summits of all continents. The 7 Summits Club cordially congratulates Andrey and wishes him good luck in achieving new goals!  For example, why not complete the "Seven Volcanoes" as well?  Or add some eightthousander? Andrey is an entrepreneur and traveler, a native and pupil of Buryatia, who now lives in Moscow. We hope that his career as a "collector of summits" will continue with the participation of our company.

 Andrey Muravyov from Australia:

Yes, I decided not to delay and finish the project "Seven Summits - Seven Continents" this year. Mount Kosciuszko, the highest point of the continent of Australia, is located here.

And even though the Mountain is the most technically simple and not high (2228 m) of the entire "star seven", now it is very difficult to just get here, taking into account the circumstances. I climbed the first peak of Kilimanjaro in Africa in 2017.

Accordingly, seven summits of all continents of the world have been reached in seven years; it seems to me that this will be a good result.

Congratulations on the International Mountain Day! Friends, love adventures, give yourself vivid emotions, love nature, go to the mountains! And let's do everything to preserve the beauty of the mountains for us and for our descendants!

 We keep calling you to the mountains! The 7 Summits Club is always ready to help you organize mountain trips around the world. Follow the updates of our programs.  Mountains should give us the happiest moments of our lives, and giving people happiness is our mission!

   If possible, leave the mountains clean after you!  And in general, do everything possible to keep the mountains a territory of freedom, a territory where you can meet with pristine nature, a place of joyful meeting with friends, a place you want to return to, where you want to bring children, where everyone will be happy!

 

 

 

 

The International Mountain Day on December 11 was established by decision of the UN General Assembly in January 2003.  Every year, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) at the United Nations, responsible for this holiday, determines the themes of the year.

 

 

International Mountain Day 2023

Restoring mountain ecosystems is the theme of this year's International Mountain Day on 11 December.

This theme was selected to fully include mountains in the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration 2021–2030, co-led by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN and the UN Environment Programme. The Decade is an opportunity to draw together political support, scientific research and financial resources to significantly scale-up restoration and prevent further degradation of mountain ecosystems.

 

Mountains cover around 27 percent of the Earth's land surface and host about half of the world's biodiversity hotspots. As the water towers of the world, they supply freshwater to an estimated half of humanity. Mountains are home to an extraordinary range of plants and animals, and to many culturally diverse communities with different languages and traditions. From climate regulation and water provisioning services, to soil maintenance and conservation, mountains are key to our lives and livelihoods.

 

Yet mountains are suffering from the impacts of climate change and unsustainable development, escalating risks for people and the planet. Climate change threatens the flow of water, and fast-rising temperatures are forcing mountain species and the people that depend on these ecosystems to adapt or migrate. Steep slopes mean the clearing of forest for farming, settlements or infrastructure can cause soil erosion as well as the loss of habitat. Erosion and pollution harm the quality of water flowing downstream. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, up to 84 percent of endemic mountain species are at risk of extinction, while populations of a range of other montane plant and animal species are projected to decline and face extinction.

 

The recent biodiversity agreement of the 2022 United Nations Biodiversity Conference – which pledges to protect 30 percent of the Earth's lands, oceans, coastal areas and inland waters by 2030 – provides an impetus to revive and protect mountain landscapes.

 

The UN General Assembly also recently proclaimed 2023–2027 "Five Years of Action for the Development of Mountain Regions" in its triennial resolution on sustainable mountain development. Its objectives are to attract grant assistance and investments for mountains, develop "green" economies and technologies, create mechanisms to strengthen cooperation between mountainous countries, and develop science and education in the field of sustainable mountain development.

 

International Mountain Day 2023 is a chance to increase awareness about the relevance of mountain ecosystems and call for nature-based solutions, best practices and investments that build resilience, reduce vulnerability and increase the ability of mountains to adapt to daily threats and extreme climatic events.

In the coming months, we will prepare communication materials in all six UN languages, which will be available here.

While "Restoring mountain ecosystems" is the suggested theme for 2023, countries, communities and organizations are welcome to celebrate IMD through a theme that is more relevant to them.

What can you do?

  • Check out the International Mountain Day social media kit for resources that can be shared widely across your networks.
  • Join the conversation on social media using the #MountainsMatter hashtag. Pass on some of this year's key messages or take a photo of your favourite mountain and share it with us and your friends.
  • Organize or participate in activities that celebrate mountains, including virtual presentations and events, photo competitions, art exhibitions and hikes.
  • Promote your planned event by officially registering it on our gallery of events happening around the world.

 

 

Sergey Bogomolov on the results of the expedition to K2. Chronicle, impressions, analysis. Part 1. How I was convinced

It all started with an August 2022 video message to me from Alexander Abramov and Fyodor Konyukhov.

They were then "sitting" with a group of climbers on Mount Damavand in Iran. And, as usually happens, there was a conversation about the 14x8000 program, its implementation in the world and in our country. It turned out that I had been the leader of this program for 21 years and there was "no one close", but at the same time I had "stopped" high-altitude mountaineering since 2016.

 They called for "shaking up the old days", making another attempt to climb K2, and took over the organization and financing.

 

 

I replied to him: Alex, hello everyone! I am glad to see and hear! You don't let me live up to my age!

Yes, let the young people be puzzled by the question and solve it! It's so cool!

And I'll bend over there and fuck who needs it! I will also make a negative image for Russia! Hugging everyone!

 

 

In previous years, there were also conversations on this topic, with the same Abramov, with the famous athlete and guide Sergei Baranov. Sergey, addressing me, said - Listen, now mountaineering has become not the one that you "walked". Everything has become easier, go ahead, and I'll find the money.  But the brakes were "sitting" inside me and I refused.

 But this time Alex convinced me - Listen, Serega, I saw how some girls could not overcome the Baltoro glacier, walked, "died". And then I find out that they climbed K2! The mountain has changed, everything will be fixed, you will be helped by Sherpas to carry the cargo, plus oxygen. This year (2022) 180 people did it!

The last phrase especially impressed me.

- How is it, did they put an "elevator" there!?

I was all in doubt and decided for myself that I needed to "check" my body. Judging of the Kazbek races was scheduled for September. And I decided to make a full-fledged ascent to the top from the Karmadon gorge along the standard route 2B of the difficulty category.

We spent the night from October 13 to October 14 at the Khvaltish Hotel at an altitude of 1613 meters. It is located on the shore of the Gergebil reservoir. So far, only the first steps have been taken here to improve this promising place. We had dinner and breakfast in glamping dome tents near the hotel. There's nothing wrong with the food here. In the evening we were pleased with dancing by our friends! And in the morning there was exercise, breakfast with coffee and a long journey... Dagestan is bigger than you think. This picturesque, hospitable republic largely consists of objects of interest to tourists. You can spend a month here, but you won't see everything. This is true. But we simply did not consider it possible to ignore the oldest city of the Russian Federation, the millennial Derbent. Of course, the walls erected in the sixth century are impressive. Yes, indeed. We had a wonderful guide who courageously coped with a large group surrounded by hundreds of other tourists. At the end we had a very hearty meat lunch with fragrant local wine. And back to the buses – to the airport…

There we said goodbye to our Dagestani friends. I really want to see them again and visit Dagestan again.

The highest point of the Gunib district is the Mayak (Lighthouse) Mountain with a height of 2,352 meters. Today our team passed the traverse of the massif, visiting the famous Gunib tunnel on the descent. It was punched specifically for the passage of Emperor Alexander II in the 60s of the XIX century.  As a result, we got about 20 kilometers with a height difference of up to 1 kilometer. The weather was great, everyone in the group walked at a different pace, but steadily. We admired the grandiose views of mountainous Dagestan, saw soaring eagles under us. Many thanks to the local guys who accompanied us and showed us the right way! All the participants of this climb were just happy with how they spent that day!

On this day, we were accompanied by beautiful weather.  After high-quality morning exercises (thanks to the guide Evgeny Fedyunin) and breakfast, we went on an excursion to the abandoned village of Gamsutl. A wonderful path led us to the ruins of a once large settlement. For lunch we moved to the modern village of Choh. Then we visited the observation point, from which the artist Aivazovsky painted the famous panorama. And a visit to the Saltinsky Waterfall. Local canyoning was quite a worthy end of the day. Thanks to our Dagestan partners, the organizers of the tour! Thanks to all the participants!
