Nikita Slotin, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Nepal:

Greetings to all from Chukung, from insatiable climbers Roman and Anton! After climbing Mera Peak, they decided to try their hand at Island Peak. And today they quite succeeded! Big eyes were not only from the views of Makalu, the Southern Face of Lhotse and the Northern slopes of Ama Dablam, but also from the technical difficulties on the route! 250 meters of fixed ropes at a height of 6000 made me tense up. The snow on the rock shelves, from which there was room to whistle in the dark, made me nervous! But the guys coped with the task by 5+ and the ascent was successful. And the guide once again managed to work out the technique of the "short rope" and remember a lot of techniques! Everyone alive and well is now resting and enjoying the spring snowfall in the Himalayas.
