Sergey Larin, guide of the 7 Summits Club:  The group "1078", on July 17 at 7:25, climbed the highest point of Europe. We left by ratrak at 2: 00, and at 9:45 we already went down to the refuge.

Although only one participant has been at altitude before - on Aconcagua, and the second –f or the first time in the mountains.

Nikita Slotin, guide of the 7 Summits Club:  Two groups of the 7 Summits Club left the base camp today and went up to Camp 1. We loaded our belongings on horses and confidently moved towards the Travelers ' Pass. When we climbed the pass, we sent messages to our dear and beloved ones, because further communication may be unstable. We had a delicious snack, arranged a photo hunt for marmots and moved on! The picturesque trail, the huge scale of moraines and glaciers amaze the imagination. And with all this beauty, we did not even notice how we got to the camp, where we were already met by Volodya Kotlyar's group. And, of course, we appreciated the scale of the mountain!

 All participants feel well. Tomorrow, according to the plan, there will be a day of rest and preparation for going to the Second camp.
