The guide of the 7 Summits Club Sergey Avtomonov reports from Turkey:

  Today we went to acclimatize to the assault camp 4200. Not everyone could make it, but we fought! It turned out to be not quite an easy walk for half of the group. Today it became clear how we will go to the top!  We lost one participant who decided to stop climbing and go down to the hotel. Everyone else reached the camp. Not quite fresh, but they got there. Then we went down, and everyone felt much better. A hot shower and lunch were waiting for us at the camp. And it helped to pass into yourself! We plan to get some sleep and go up to spend the night in the assault camp. The weather favors us, we hope it will continue to be the same!

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Sergey Avtomonov reports from Turkey:

Greetings to all from the slopes of the sacred mountain! Today we finally gathered together in the city of Dogubayazit. We collected all the remaining things, distributed souvenirs, waited out the downpour and moved to the slope! While we were walking, the rain started several times, we got a little wet. But then the sun came out and dried us out. About four o'clock we arrived at the camp. We settled in tents, had lunch and rested.  In the evening we had a little wine and are trying to agree on the name of the group. There is no final decision yet. Tomorrow we will go to the assault camp for acclimatization. The weather is promised to be good, so they should not get wet.

The Guide of the 7 Summits Club Sergey Avtomonov reports from Turkey:

The group "Masha and the Bears" climbed the summit of Mount Ararat. Not quite a full team, due to bad weather, but Masha has reached the top! Everyone is alive and well, everyone went down to the city, rested after a hard climb and winter weather. On the night of climbing at the top, the forecast did not come true and the wind was up to 50 km per hour, aggravated by snow and lack of visibility. After the descent, we were caught by hail in the assault camp. And then we went down to Dogubayazit. And we spent the night at the hotel. Then we visited the palace of Ishaq Pasha, then we went to the city of Van, swam in the lake and got to the hotel. And in the evening we celebrated the ascent and the end of the program.

Now a new road has started working. The walk has become a little less, the camp is only 7.5 kilometers away.  We walked slowly with a tea break, a little faster than 4 hours. Everyone feels great. On the way, we chatted and looked at the beauty of the Ararat Valley. Tomorrow we will go to the assault camp for acclimatization. There's still snow there, so we dress warmer.

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Sergey Avtomonov reports from Nepal

 All namaste from the Letter U group! Today we spent the day at the lodge.  We adjusted our equipment, took what was missing at the rent office. Then we went to practice with jumars and ropes. We have mastered the technique of rope climbing. We will have a lot of them on the ascent. Then we learned how to use descent devices. After lunch, we did a workout on how to walk on ladders lying through cracks! There is a feeling that we are preparing for Everest, but no - this Island Peak is so interesting this year!

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Sergey Avtomonov reports from Nepal:

 Hooray! The Drink team group made an ascent on Mera Peak. We tried not to get drunk too much and we could! There was no communication for two days.  During this time, we reached the assault camp 5800. We slept at a new height for everyone in tents. In the morning, we went out to climb, views of Mount Everest Lhotse and other eight-thousand-meter Summits opened. While we were going up, the weather was frosty, but clear. And on the descent the fog tightened and we were looking for a way between the cracks to the camp. On the descent from the assault camp, it snowed with a thunderstorm, which turned off the Internet in the whole district. And in the morning we safely went by helicopter to Lukla, where we continue to rest now. We're splitting up tomorrow. Part of the group is flying under Island Peak.  And part of it is in Kathmandu to rest and fly home.

The Drink team group reached the loggia in Khar – at 4900 meters. We walked slowly in good weather and with a light breeze. We had lunch and then went higher, to acclimatize to a height of 5100. Tomorrow the plan is to make a final check of the equipment, conduct classes on the use of jumars and the rest of our toys. And in the evening we decided to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Dynamo club. Therefore, instead of beer, we drink rum today and justify our name!

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Sergey Avtomonov reports from Nepal:

The Drink team group from the approaches to the Mera Peak! Today, a strategic decision was made not to drink rum before climbing summit. So far, only beer and that - on a limited scale. We reached the village of Tagnak 4200m today.  On the way we visited a Buddhist monastery. It feels like they have already acclimatized for this height. A deeper sleep has come to many and rest begins to bring more pleasure.  Tomorrow we go to the last lodge before the climbing part.  Then only up and up to the top. Today, Mera peak is already hanging over us and makes it clear that this is not a simple mountain!  All namaste!

A guide of the 7 Summits Club Sergey Avtomonov reports from Nepal:

The Drink team is in touch! Today was a simpler day. We woke up in Thuli Kharka, slowly gathered and began to traverse towards the village of Khote. First, through the snow and rocks, the path led us to the descent into the coniferous forest. We stopped there for lunch in the loggia. When we went out, the weather turned a little bad and a light rain began to drip. We were lucky the rain was light and we almost didn't get wet.  We reached the Khote village. In the loggia where we stayed for the night, there is a shower and a coffee machine! We have taken full advantage of these benefits and are resting.

Super-guide of the 7 Summits Club Sergey Avtomonov reports from Nepal:

The group "In search of papaya" is in touch. Yesterday we had no communication, so the news for two days. Yesterday we traversed from Shrekharka to Yak Kharka.  This is almost a kilometer of difference, but the height has not changed much. A beautiful warm day with a light breeze and beautiful views. We tried not to strain ourselves too much and recover from the tedious ascent to Lake Tilicho. We got there quickly, we were in the camp by lunch.  Rested and slept well. Today we moved to the upper camp of Torong Pedi.  We reached it in 3 hours, slowly. The altitude is already felt, although it is much easier to walk after the lake than if we had immediately climbed here. Today, according to the plan, an early dinner and at 5 am exit to the Torong pass. I hope the weather will be good and we will easily cross over to the other side.
