Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club from Nepal:  News of the Everest-2021 expedition. Huge greetings to all! Over the past three days, we made an important acclimatization rotation and consolidated our success with an overnight stay in the Camp-2 at 6500m. There is no way to bypass the Khumbu icefall on the way up and down, there is only one way. And this path changes every day, the glacier creeps about a meter a day, and sometimes the seraks fall... While we were climbing, everyone was a little worried, but everything went smoothly. Overnight stays at 6100 and 6500 are a credit to us, and now a well-deserved rest in the base camp.

Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club from Nepal: Last night we planned to go up to Camp 6000 and the next day to Camp 6400. That's just the plan with the rotation exit failed, as late in the evening the Khumbu icefall moved a ... read more

 Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club from Nepal:  Last night we planned to go up to Camp 6000 and the next day to Camp 6400. That's just the plan with the rotation exit failed, as late in the evening the Khumbu icefall moved a little. The prepared route was partially destroyed and required repairs from a team of Icefall Doctors.

As a result, we did not go out at night, but already in the light and just with an introductory task. We only looked at the icefall, tried it a little, and then returned to the camp. At night, we go according to yesterday's plan, already knowing a little what awaits us.

 The group "Lhotse 8516" led by Lyudmila Korobeshko also goes up tomorrow. Today they held ice classes, and after lunch they rested and prepared for the upcoming exit.

Olga Rumyantseva, guide of the 7 Peaks Club from Bolivia:  The program of the new group of the 7 Summits Club in Bolivia has begun. Today our team "HolaTeam" got acquainted with the sights of La Paz. We started our tour with a place called "Moon Valley".  In La Paz, there are unusually few tourists, so all the museums are mostly closed. But there are a lot of people on the streets. Music is playing, everyone is walking. After the Moon Valley, we visited the historical part of the city. Then we went to the local market, where they sell vegetables and fruits, and to the witch market, where they sell various potions.
