We have already written about this wonderful book and noted that the author did exactly what he wanted. Well, the presentation was held in form, which, of course, was also pleasing to him. In the form of a meeting of friends!

Once again pay tribute to the author and his assistants: the book, in the form of the album, is 100% successful. This happen not often.

 

 

 

So, the presentation was held on Saturday 4 April at the Museum of Senkewich...

 

 

First of all there were author’s fellows from a trek to the South pole, just friends, also active members of the 7 summits Club: Dmitry Moskalev, Vladimir Lande and Yuri Taidakov. Andrey Belov represented the heroic crew of Il-76 linking the Antarctic base with the mainland.

 

 

 

 


In addition, Luba and Victor Nikolaevs were here, that all the well-known authorities in the field of mountaineering. And other nice and lovely people. The atmosphere was relaxed and informal, helped by the cozy atmosphere of the Museum and high quality alcohol.

 

 

There is no doubt that no one has to regret that visited the presentation. There was much that is so appreciated by the participants of the polar travel - human communication, not in extreme conditions. Everyone heard what they wanted to hear and could get autograph of the author on own copy.

In the spotlight was also the President of the 7 Summits Club Alexander Abramov. He was being very busy with preparation a new Everest expedition, but managed to find the strength to make a short speech. Again, thanks to the alcohol, it proved to be relatively successful.

 

 

The 7 Summits Club also represented a world 7 summits record holder Lyudmila Korobeshko (Director of the Company) and professional polar Explorer, our manager Anastasia Kuznetsova.

 

 

This is Drambuie – a leading drink of polar explorers, Irina Klimova has taught us that wisdom with humor…

 

 

All expedition and presentation photos can be viewed in the large gallery of Jubilee expedition. All 226 pictures, which 46 are from the presentation, and are placed at the end.

For more than 10 years of experience in the Everest region, Alexander Abramov and 7 summits Club have formed a great team of staff, mainly composed of persons Sherpas nationality. These are our true friends, who love their work, friendly and always willing to help. Of course, there were different cases in different situations, sometimes misunderstanding, there have been mistakes. One thing is clear, every year the team is working better and better. Thanks to our Nepalese chef Mingma Gelu Sherpa!

We have only good news. Mingma Gelu, our Nepalese Director, will go with our expedition to Everest. For this purpose, he got rid of the headmaster's belly. A few years Mingma was limited his work to office and base camp, and is now returning to the mountain. He had 8 successful summits of Everest, his sister Laki – 6 summiter. And she, too, returns to beat her record for number of ascents among women.

 

 

 

 

Meanwhile, Alex Abramov is thinking how he will be seen in history. The film crew will soon arrive and will start to work. Apparently, with the villainous beard, typical of the bad guys in Hollywood movies, Alex did not want to be captured for posterity. Better to be as good looking as the Dalai Lama. The benefit in Kathmandu – you can be shaved for a penny, they even forget about the strike, when the client coming.

This site propose fairly short and concise statement of the facts from different areas of knowledge. Elbrus is described briefly and in half of the cases with errors and inaccuracies. However, the final part of the text pleased us. Here facts are basically correct and the name of our leader Alexander Abramov rightly inscribed in the history of the mountain.

http://factualfacts.com/world/mount-elbrus/#__scoop_post=b5eabce0-d7e5-11e4-8a30-001018304b75&__scoop_topic=4009301

“1997

Russian Alexander Abramov guided a ten man expedition, where a Land Rover was driven to the peak. It took 43 days to accomplish this goal, but there were a lot of struggles that had to be overcome. They had to change tyres and utilize winches to pull the vehicle up and it was a continuous cycle of ascending and descending the mountain to retrieve replacement parts that had got damaged. After a lot of sweat and tears they finally reached the peak on September 13, 1997. The Land Rover was abandoned after an attempt down, when they lost control. They later returned to fetch it, but found it too difficult. It still sits in the same spot today and can be seen by other climbers and adventurers”.
