Meanwhile, the group "Stars of boots" successfully climbed the highest point of Papua New Guinea. Wilhelm Peak 4509m. On May 8, almost all the participants stood at the top (one lady decided to save her injured knee).

The weather was perfect. On the descent we swam in the lake. It's so great when you have the opportunity to freshen up right after the mountain! In the evening, the ascent was already celebrated in the lodge.

Meanwhile, the group "Stars in Boots" moved to the neighboring province in Papuasia. The road was a long jolt. But on arrival we were greeted by the whole village.  We were shown the traditions of choosing grooms and funerals with songs and dances. We live in a very cozy lodge with lots of flowers. We went on an excursion to see how salmon is bred. And for dinner we had delicious fish with vegetables from the local vegetable garden. We met an amazing hostess who was happy to answer numerous questions about farming and local life. In the evening we sat by the fireplace, laughed a lot and loudly, playing "contact". Tomorrow we will go to the base camp of Mount Wilhelm.

And finally the adventure in Papua for the next big group began. They called themselves "Stars in boots"!! The first part arrived yesterday, and we entertained ourselves with conversations and sipped wine. And the next morning, as if nothing had happened, we conducted a joint yoga practice. Today, everyone finally gathered in the town of Mount Hagen, had lunch, checked out local shops and moved to a comfortable lodge in the middle of the rain forest. We had an incredibly interesting circle of acquaintances. The team is big, 10 people, and I wanted to listen to everyone without stopping.

Boris Egorov, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Papua New Guinea:

Greetings from Papua New Guinea! Our cultural program continues in this country. The day began with a trip to a special place in the jungle, on a photo hunt for local birds. We were lucky to see an unusual feathered creature with a long, beautiful white tail, which is even depicted on the flag of PNG. After that we visited a new village, where we were shown how to cook the national dish mumu. To do this, first small stones are heated in the fire, and then vegetables and meat are laid in layers in the pit, interspersed with banana leaves. While the food was languishing in the ground, we watched the female and male dances and got acquainted with some of the customs of this tribe. Finally, after this, we tasted the food, delicious! Well, in the evening, chess and preference are already traditional.

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Boris Egorov reports from Turkey:

That's the end of the climbing program in Turkey. On the last day, Alexey and Zhenya and I scouted the distant canyon sector. It is a beautiful place near the sea.

We got what we wanted.

Boris Egorov, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Mexico:

Long-awaited news from Mexico. Yesterday at two o'clock in the afternoon our team climbed the last rope of the huge wall, it is called El Gigante.  It was an incredible adventure! Three and a half days of continuous vertical movement, three nights suspended on inflatable platforms. There were practically no places on our route where you could at least stand, they were hanging in safety systems all the time. The rock is very wild, there is no one around, we have not seen a soul during the entire ascent. But it turned out to be absolutely detached from everything in the world, there were only us, the wall and our multi-kilogram trunks, which we dragged up after us. There are only a few such ascents in the world, and even more so in such exotic places. (Even just to get under the wall, we needed local guides with machetes). Of course, this is not our first rock adventure with Alexey and Zhenya, but we are experiencing such difficulty and danger for the first time. And such an event will be all the more memorable. Guides Boris Egorov and Vladimir Murzaev.

Boris Egorov, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Mexico: 

And we continue to warm up on the rocks in the Northern part of Mexico. We came to El Potrero Chico precisely because there are a huge number of multi-pitches (long climbing routes).  And this is exactly what you need to work out the interaction on the wall and develop strength endurance.   Yesterday we quickly climbed a rather long route of 12 pitches. Alexey was in the lead all the way, and the guides only served the delays and enjoyed the views like tourists. After the descent, we decided to run to a small tower before the pile, it looks like we have a solid collection of such rock "spires". At this point, we believe that the preparation is over and we have a whole day of flights and transfers to get to the canyon with a big rock walls.

Boris Egorov, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Greece:

Hello everyone!  For two days, our team climbed in one of the most beautiful places in Greece called Meteora. There are huge pillars about 300 meters high, some of them are occupied by active monasteries. This whole natural and man-made complex is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The rock is a conglomerate, and quite fragile, it is necessary to climb carefully, since almost any stone can, if desired, simply be removed from the wall. An additional difficulty is that the belay on bolts is quite rare (5-6 meters between the points) and you can additionally belay only in rare crevices or by throwing loops on all the same protruding unreliable stones.

We made 3 climbs, and I managed to make one parachute jump from one of the walls.

Boris Egorov, a guide of the 7 Summits Club:  Hello to all from Elbrus! Today, the Wet Crampons team climbed to the highest point in Europe. The night before our assault, there was a thunderstorm and snow fell, so the ascent took place in not the most favorable conditions. Our participants were quite active, so we were almost the first among the groups to reach the top today. So, we trampled down fresh snow and made a trail. But it's nice that the not very good weather forecast did not come true, and we enjoyed the sun almost the whole way. Thank you to the participants for a great fast ascent! See you in the mountains!
