Ending our trip on the program: "School of Survival in the mountains - the Crimea"

Today at 15:30 we finished to climb the route of "7 Summits" on Ai-Petri!

We were waiting for this moment for 3 years from the date when the Ai-Petri route was made in honor of our club.

The route is very cool, long, but our friends from Yalta equipped it with high quality and it is practically safe.

We are: Alexander Abramov, Luda Korobeshko (both from Moscow), Sasha Marinkevich and Sasha Noskov (both from Yalta).

Just in the process of training our team climbed on rocky mountain massifs Krestovaya, Koshka and Nikita. We climbed Routes: "Surprise" and "Shambala" on Uarch Kaya and Route "7 Summits" on Ai-Petri.

We are very happy and want to stay in the Crimea to live ... But we need to go back....

Hello! Luba Pershin from Peru. Today we returned to Cuzco from Machu Picchu. We had a very hard day, but very interesting. We climbed the mountain Huayna Picchu, which towers over the citadel of Machu Picchu. Not easy climbing, frankly, after trekking. But we were in the most beautiful location of Machu Picchu. Also we hike with our guide at the citadel. We looked at everything that we can. The weather was wonderful. None of raindrops. Although again I repeat, there is now deep enough wet season.

Hello! Today, November 3, 10 hours and 30 minutes of local time of the Seven Summits team stood a top of Ngugi Ngugi, as the locals call Carstensz Pyramid. Now we are at the base camp and have a lunch. I remind our composition: Father Alexander, his son Dmitri, Konstantin and yours truly - Sergei. As for Dmitri, his birthday is April 11, 2001. Our guide Poxy says he had led a 12-year-old American in August of 2009 *. But they did not go a trek and reached base camp by helicopter. So there is cause for reflection. Finally congratulations we will take when we were in Timika. This is approximately a Saturday. The return trip will also not fast. But we have already formed a new goal - is Bali. By! Sergej Larin.

* Jordan Romero climbed to the top of the Pyramid Carstensz September 1, 2009 at the age of 13 years and 40 days.

Hello everyone! Vladimir Kotlyar, climbing Mera peak. We just came down from the top. Now we are in the village of Khare. Of the eight participants, whose purpose was to reach the summit of Mera Peak, five coped with the task. The weather was wonderful, but it was very cold, very cold ... to be honest. But it was clear skies. Were visible Himalayan giants: Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu - it was all there, in full view. Overall, a fabulous picture. I congratulate all the participants on the ascent! All done! Everything was wonderful and beautiful. And now we begin the descent down to Lukla and return home. Well, all the best! So long!

Azerbaijan's famous mountain climber Murad Ashurly has died in the Himalayas.

The news of his death has shocked Azerbaijani sports community.


Ashurly, 42, made a successful ascent to the mountain Ama Dablam (6856 m) as part of a commercial exhibition of the Seven Summits Club along with eight other climbers. He went missing during the descent.


Later, one of the participants of the exhibition talked about the death of Azerbaijani climber.


Noel Hanna wrote in a social network: "The last 30 hours were the worst in my life. Yesterday morning at 9:30 am we went from Camp 2 on Ama Dablam, to descend to Camp 1. I went first, the rest of the group was behind me. I was coming down for about 30 minutes, and then this nightmare happened. I just finished the descent on the rope (a lot of old ropes and a new one) and went to the next, when the rope on which after me went down after my friend Murad, broke up. Murad fell down to 300-400 meters to the rocks and snow. We started the rescue work immediately, but the weather was very bad. Early this morning I brought his body out of the mountains to Kathmandu on a rescue helicopter. I lost my favorite partner-climber and my friend. My condolences to Olga and the entire family of Murad."


Murad Ashurly was working as a top manager of one of the leading telecommunications companies in the United States. He was a member of Azerbijan's Mountaineering Federation and experienced climbers.
In 2007, he successfully conquered McKinley the highest peak of North America. He was the third Azerbaijani to climb Mount Everest and Kangchenjunga, completing the Seven Summits challenge in 2013.
Murad was the cousin of Israfil Ashurly , the first Azerbaijani who climbed Mount Everest and Kangchenjunga.
