It is a multiple champion of Russia on mountaineering in technical class Alexander Lastochkin. Together they plan to climb the highest point of the Mount Kenya- Batian (5199 m) . They will have to climb a fairly hard rocky route .

December 1 Vitaly flew to Mexico, where the goal of his ascent will be the highest volcano in North America -Mount Orizaba. If everything will be normal, immediately after the descent, he crashes in Chile, where is his final object of Seven Volcanoes. This is the highest of all the volcanoes in the world Ojos del Salado.

 

The first of volcanoes for Simonovich was Kilimanjaro in 2011. There is a chance that Vitaly will be the fastest man in the world who have completed the program Seven Volcanoes . And, because not so long ago Vitaly Simonovic has successfully completed the 7 Summits in two versions : with Carstens Pyramid and Kosciuszko, he could be the fastest on the sum of two programs: the 7 Summits and 7 Volcanoes .

Good luck!

Hello ! Our team sends greetings to all from the top of Mount Wilhelm, the highest peak in Papua New Guinea. Here we went up just 3-5 minutes ago, took pictures with our beloved flag, and are now beginning to slow down. Weather, thank God, improved, and will give us the opportunity to go down without accidents .... The team is: Oleg , Gregory , Michael , Vladimir, Vyacheslav , Lyudmila and Alexander. That is our cheerful company. Now we have to descend down. We walked up about 8 hours, and plan 7 hours to go down, because there is such a slippery road. The slippery, covered with dirt and grass rocks. That's it! I hope everything will be fine. So long! Hello everyone !

Lyudmila Korobeshko : Greetings from sunny-rainy city of Mount Haggen, it is Papua New Guinea!

Here from morning to afternoon sun bakes and in the afternoon downpour begins and continues till the morning.

 

Today at 9:00 am the team arrived. Two days of continuous flight were little tired, but people kept well. The first step, of course, medicine.

 

 

After all, tomorrow at 5 a.m. there will be a start on mountain in the pouring rain and cold. We must somehow get warm. A warming agent (alcohol) is only in a special kazimats type of concrete with wire and guard the perimeter, released by coupons ... We got it.

The guys found a wealth of climbing experience. They gladly shared their stories of climbing on Mount Kazbek, Elbrus, Ararat, Kilimanjaro, Cotopaxi, Aconcagua, Orizaba. Were even on the tops of the rarely visited as Huyten in Mongolia and Tajumulco in Guatemala.

But such a strange country, they said, they see for the first time.

Early tomorrow we shall go. Let's see what the feelings will be after returning from a three days of shower climbing in the tallest volcano of Australia and Oceania – Mount Giluve. Now the boys were firmly outlined a dip in one of the highest lakes ....
