March 7th. There is one road from Baranco camp to the top, but you can choose options. Go immediately to the Barafu assault camp or with an intermediate overnight in Karanga camp. We are following the second option. It’s more reliable and more likely to reach the top. And the beginning of both paths is the wall of Baranko, for some reason everyone is scared before, and "difficult - good" after. We passed. We reached the Karanga camp with the slogan“main thing is not to get tired”, and before the rain.

 

 

 

March 8th. The group climbed to Barafu camp. We have everything according to plan, at night the team goes to the top, we plan to be at the highest point by dawn. That's just the weather is rainy. But precipitation does not affect our progress in any way.

Take a break from the gray everyday life and see the new photo gallery on our website! The amazing world of Antarctica through the eyes of a Mongolian woman climber. 130 great photos from the expedition of the winter of 2016. We hope that looking at it, you will understand one thing: that living a life without visiting the Ice Continent is wrong. And look at our offers,  the 7 Summits Club - the leading operator on the Russian market for organizing tours to Antarctica.

The most famous Mongolian  woman climber Gangaama Badamgarav, in the company of the 7 Summits Club, is known simply as Ganga, published a cool selection of photos on Facebook.

Mountain climbing in Mongolia copied the structure of the Soviet counterpart. Therefore, the Ganga bears the proud title of Honored Master of Sports of Mongolia, in her early climbing career she went through all stages of training and received the title of master of sports and instructor. Ganga was born in the countryside in a large family. Her father was an educated person and, in addition to his usual rural work, he was also an accountant in a local cooperative. The girl strove for knowledge and went to study at the University of Ulan Bator with a degree in Microbiology. And almost simultaneously at the age of 20 she began to engage in mountaineering. At the beginning of the century, a national program was announced in Mongolia - climbing Mount Everest. There are many good climbers in this country, but the Gangaama was not lost among them. She became the first woman in the country, climbing first Everest, and then all "Seven Summits".

And she parted with microbiology. She received a second higher education - coaching. Now Ganga runs his own company, works as a guide, trainer, instructor. She conducts active public work. And receives well-deserved state awards.

"Seven summits" Gangaama Badamgarav:

Elbrus - 2010.

Everest - 2011.

Kilimanjaro - 2012.

Denali - 2015.

Aconcagua, Carstensz and Vinson - 2016.

And plus K2 in 2018!

Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club: Hi 7 Summits! Last evening and night there was some unusually windy and rainy weather.  It pour a lot, blew hard. In the morning, all calmed down. We go according the plan further, we had lunch near the Lava Tower. And we hope that during the night everything is blown out and spilled out, and there will no longer be bad weather. We climbed the Lava Tower, had lunch, and already went down to the Baranco camp. As before, we eat well, sleep, and gently acclimatize.

Yesterday we reached the camp of Machame, rising at a pleasant, not fast pace - without crowds of climbers and without rain. Both last points surprised. Today, according to the same surprisingly comfortable program, we moved higher to the next camp, 3800m. We gently acclimatize, eat well and walk.

Hi, 7 Summits! The next expedition to the summit of Kilimanjaro begins. We are following our favorite route of Machame. On the eve, some kind of tremendous amount of precipitation fell, even a little washed out roads. And today is the sun. And the forecast for the coming days is rather optimistic, which is what we hope for. Hakuna matata!

 

 

And the other day we ran the Kilimanjaro marathon (someone half marathon), which traditionally takes place on the last Sunday of February.

Alex Abramov, Prezident of the 7 Summits Club:  So, the season at Aconcagua 2019-2020 ended. The Russian camp of the 7 Summits Club proved to be the best in action. The season was great. We had 7 groups. Of the 63 members, 58 reached the top. 6 guides and 2 Sherpas worked with groups. We worked out the technology of providing sleeping bags in the Colera camp at 6000m.

Two Sherpas worked on the mountain with 5 groups. We set up big tents in the Base Camp Plaza de Mulas. All participants lived one at single tents. We enjoyed life, drank wine, danced. And at the same time, we successfully climbed to the summit. Everyone returned alive and healthy, and happy. Everyone returned home as real heroes.

Artem Rostovtsev, the group guide:  Hi, 7 Summits, from the climbers of Kilimanjaro! Today the weather was atypical. We even suspected a blizzard of it. 12 of 13 members of our team climbed in difficult conditions on the highest point of Kilimanjaro - Uhuru peak. We started climbing by the whole team, but, unfortunately, not everyone reached the mountain. Feeling weak, one woman decided to turn around at an altitude of 5550 meters. Now we have already started the descent from the assault camp, all with our own feet. Fatigue of course, but the joy of a fulfilled dream gives strength.

Sunny greetings for everyone!

Today our path ran through lunch on the Lava Tower, we had to get 850 meters. And then a picturesque descent led us to the camp of Baranco. Everyone feels well. From tomorrow, we go only up.

Sergey Avtomonov, super-guide of the 7 Summits Club from Argentina: Here is a team of guides of the Russian camp of the 7 Summits Club on Aconcagua - Alex Abramov, Andrey Berezin and Sergey Avtomonov. Today we spent a night at the Nido de Condores camp.  At night, a snow storm began, many were afraid to fly away with tents. But nothing happened. In the morning we decided to go down to the base camp of the Plaza de Mulas to rest there before the assault and wait for the good weather. On arrival at the camp, we learned that some of the tents were torn or even flown away, we were lucky! We hope that soon everything will normalize, and we will go on an assault.
