Nastya Kuznetsova, guide of the 7 Summits Club from Turkey:

 Today there was the first acquaintance of the team with Ararat, we hope that it is mutually pleasant! Ararat has opened and appeared in all its glory! We reached the starting point at 2200 m and then climbed in 5 hours to the base camp at 3200 m. According to the plan, we will spend 3 nights here - 2 nights before the assault and 1 after the assault. In the base camp this season, there are innovations - electrification of the camp and tents, beds in tents, a shower and the novelty of the season-a samovar (a hookah will not surprise anyone). Greetings to all from Turkey from the slopes of Ararat! Guides Boris Egorov and Anastasia Kuznetsova.
