A guide of the 7 Summits Club Andrey Berezin reports from the Elbrus region

News of the Elbrus region from the group "Shine Sparkle".  A large friendly company began to acclimatize and prepare for the ascent on Elbrus. In the plans of the training program, we have climbed to a height of 2700 m today. Autumn abruptly came into its own.  The heavy rain and the sharply falling air temperature reminded us that the first autumn month had already arrived. Tomorrow we are going to the refuge National Park, where we will continue to acclimatize. Guides of the group Andrey Berezin and Alexander Dorojukov.

 And we also celebrated Denis Dmitrov's birthday today.

The 7 Summits Club joins the congratulations!

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Valery Myasoedov reports from Iran:

The fourth day of the program of the group "Recording in the library" on Demavend.  So to speak, we cross the equator... Leisurely packing and moving to the Mosque, a place also called Gusfand-Saro. On this day, it resembled a turbulent flow, numerous groups were going up and down, the approaching end of the season and good weather attract and motivate additionally. A traditional photo at the mosque and the ascent to Borgoh-e Sevvom, the only shelter on the mountain, also known as the assault camp, translated from Persian as the Third Camp, at an altitude of 4200 m. Why the Third One at once, and where the First and Second are, is a mystery... Delicious soup for a late lunch, and for dinner... stuffed chicken… How Narges-khanum, our chef manages to cook such dishes on the mountain, is the second mystery... Everyone was perplexed and delighted. Over dinner, we discussed the program of the next two days.  Tomorrow there will be a simple acclimatization rotation 300-400 m above the assault camp on the way to the summit and preparation for the ascent.

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Sergey Larin reports from Nepal:  A new project “8000. Guide”. It begins with the expedition on Manaslu (8156m) and continues along the list, which, as you know, includes 14 items. The first participants have already arrived in Kathmandu. There are 5 people in the climbing group with me and one person with a permit to the base camp. The climbing permit has just been received. I signed the papers on 10 sheets. It seems that the monsoon has not completely left Nepal yet. Such weather is common for September. But the ascent on Manaslu is carried out at the end of September, Because, despite the abundance of precipitation, it is still warm at altitude and not such strong winds.

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Valery Myasoedov reports from Iran:

Greetings from Iran from our group! The second day of the program and immediately a test of strength. Climbing Colon Bashtak, 4120 m, 700 meters of climb. It was hot, it was dusty, but the group in full under the guidance of our permanent Iranian guide Mahyor went to the top. A small, but still an achievement.  Our team of Iranian guides is the best on the mountain!

  In the photo from the top with us, it would seem, an outsider. In fact, this is Mehdi, our regular driver, a very friendly and caring person. He also goes to the mountains sometimes, has been to Damavand more than once. And here, too, he decided to join us on the ascent. That's the kind of team we have - guides, drivers, and cooks, all people in love with the mountains.

 We went down more cheerfully. We were waiting for a hotel with single accommodation, with hot water, after such a dust! On the way, we bought half a shop of local fruits - watermelons, peaches, figs, which became a wonderful dessert for a delicious and plentiful dinner at the hotel. We deserve it!...

A guide of the 7 Summits Club Andrey Berezin reports from the Elbrus region:

News of the Elbrus region.  Today, our group made an ascent on the Western peak of Elbrus. Autumn has already come into its own, which means that you can't expect good weather. The wind along the summit exceeded 50 km per hour. Therefore, the photos at the top were mostly in a safe sitting position. Also, because of the wind, it was not possible to unfurl the flags. Now the whole group is at the refuge, packing their bags and preparing to descend into civilization.  Guides Berezin &Dorojukov.

 

 

 

 

 

 

A new group of the 7 Summits Club has started its journey. And immediately set a record – bungee jump from the Milod Tower!

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Valery Myasoedov reports from Iran: A good even date is September 1, the first day of autumn, the beginning of the school year, and we have the beginning of the program on Damavand! Tehran met us, as always, ... read more

Гид Клуба 7 Вершин Валерий Мясоедов сообщает из Ирана:

Хорошая четная дата 1 сентября, первый день осени, начало учебного года, а у нас начало программы на Дамаванд! Тегеран встретил нас, как всегда, жаркой погодой +36 днём, но мы были к этому готовы. А как мы промчались через все этапы паспортно-визового контроля, дух захватывает! 40 минут с момента приземления, и мы уже получили багаж. Вот что значит правильная организация процесса!

 

 A quick transfer to the hotel and four whole hours to rest and sleep in the morning, lucky so lucky! A sightseeing tour, part of which took the exchange of money. There are a lot of exchangers, but they have surprisingly little money, a seasonal problem with cash. A traditional visit to the Golestan Palace, the residence of the Iranian shahs - mirrors, carpets, stained glass windows, oriental flavor delights and amazes.

 

 

Lunch at a cafe serving "dizi sangi", a rich stewed vegetable stew with lamb. And the serving is also unusual, be sure to visit and use!

 And the highlight of yesterday's program... drumming... This is a banji jump from Tehran's tallest building, the Milod Tower, 435 m high.

There... see the platform?..  the height of the platform is 280 meters.

 

 

One of the members of our group is the legendary Mikhail Panov, the owner of numerous records, who has 520 jumps in all corners of the planet. He got carried away with bungee at the age of 63, and now at 69 years old and does not think to stop there.

Mikhail developed this idea of jumping from the Milod Tower, and, of course, we supported him. Two more members of our group, two Valeria and the tour guide Fatima joined him.

 

 

 Many thanks to Mikhail for the idea, for the motivation, we hope it will continue and attract fearless participants to visit both Iran and Damavand in the future.

 And it wasn't the end of this super-saturated day. Then there was a welcome dinner at the Milod Tower restaurant, just one floor below. Tired and satisfied, we got to the hotel and literally collapsed in bed, such a day will remain in memory for a long time!

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Olga Rumyantseva reports from Morocco: Hello everyone! That's the end of our adventures in Marroko. On the last day we moved from the hot red Marrakech to the ocean, to the blue-white city of Essaouira.

But before we got to this city, on the way, first of all, we finally saw the legendary Moroccan goats that graze, climbing argan trees and eating their fruits and leaves.

A tree strewn with goats like apples is a very unusual sight. Secondly, we stopped at a beautiful winery - a small piece of France with an African flavor, where we looked at the process of wine production, and then tried their best samples.

 And finally, we arrived in Essaouira. Essaouira is the ocean, it's sand, it's white and blue houses and blue fishermen's boats, a big fish market and an old fortress. Here you can wander around the old town for hours or sit on the beach looking at the ocean. You can also swim (which we immediately did), but not for long, because the water is very cool.

 The most active of us went to learn kite surfing. We just walked around the city until the evening. This is the end of our trip, which gave so many bright and diverse impressions.

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Olga Rumyantseva reports from Morocco:

Hello everyone from Morocco! Yesterday we had a very busy, even oversaturated excursion day. Early in the morning, before leaving the hospitable Ouarzazate, we visited the most famous Kasbah Al Ben Hada, where various famous films were shot.

We wandered among the ancient walls, looked at where the Gladiator movie was filmed, looked at how they make drawings from tea and saffron.  After that we drove towards Marrakech. On the way, we saw how the legendary argon oil is produced.

As soon as we arrived in Marrakech, we immediately went on a walking tour of the city. We visited the most iconic sights: Bahia Palace, Madrasah, Majorelle Garden. We walked through the ancient streets. And only late in the evening, fed up with impressions, finally rested at the hotel. It turned out to be a wonderful eventful day, which opened up to us Marrakech from a new side.

Greetings from Iran from the slopes of Demavend, from the team of Fedor Konyukhov! 

Today we say goodbye to the mountain and return to civilization. The night after the assault (our third night in the shelter) this time passed calmly and quickly. We went down to the camp with the mosque in three hours, said goodbye to the mountain and plunged into the bustle of the city again.

In the evening we had a gala dinner with congratulations, hugs, kind words, best wishes and plans for the future. At the suggestion of Oskar Konyukhov, Alex Abramov and Fyodor Konyukhov wrote memorable words and wishes to all participants on the permits issued to each participant.

For example, our beautiful girl Bayan, an Iranian guide, Fyodor Konyukhov wished to climb Mount Everest, and Alex Abramov set a date when it should be done! Tomorrow, part of the group returns home, the other part continues its journey through Iran.

Until new meetings and Summits!
