On August 16, a large group of the 7 Summits Club under the leadership of Alexander Abramov arrived in the city of Van. On the first day, the group visited local attractions and took a tour on the lake. August 17, after breakfast with overlooking  the lake of Van, all went together to the city of Dogubayazit. There they changed vehicles and reached the start point at 2300 m. The cargo was sent on horseback, and the members climbed with stops for photos and acclimatization to 3,300 m, where the first camp is located. All the people were distributed to the tents and had a "candlelit" dinner. Then they discussed plans for tomorrow, and the acclimatization rotation on 4200 meters is planned.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Everest 2013. The highest ever BASE jump and Summit

 Valery Rozov group of 11 people was working in the expedition of the 7 Summits Club. Among them, his constant companions for the most extreme expeditions: Alexander Ruchkin, Thomas Senf and Sergey Krasko. The group was acclimated, has prepared the site for a touchdown and a shooting on North Rongbuk glacier. Time was short, and Valery decided to jump at the first opportunity, on May 5 of 2013.

And it was a complete success - the highest ever BASE jump!

  We are proud that this new achievement of the outstanding Russian athlete was made within the 7 Summits Club Everest expedition under the leadership of Alex Abramov.

 

      

 

Red Bull:

The Russian extreme sports star Valery Rozov has made the highest ever BASE jump after leaping off Mt Everest from an altitude of 7,220m. Rozov made the jump on May 5th after almost two years of planning and training.

The ascent began on the Chinese side on the famous north route. Rozov had selected a spot for his leap at an altitude of 7,220 meters. It took him four days to climb from base camp to the jumping location, assisted by a team of four Sherpas.

At precisely 2:30 p.m. local time on May 5th, with temperatures at -18 Celsius, he jumped. Because the cliff at the top was not very high, the initial moment in the rarified high altitude air was extremely precarious.

Initial moment the most critical

Rozov needed more time than usual in the thin air to transition from freefall to flying. But after that he flew for nearly a full minute at speeds of about 200 km/h down the north face before landing safely on the Rongbuk glacier (5,950m).

  

  

  

Thank you, Red Bull !

Alex Abramov from Everest base camp: Today, May 8. The whole team  came down to the Base Camp. Today, 14 people - Valery Rozov and his team and a team of climbers on Changtse left for Kathmandu, and then to go home. Now, only 10 climbers on Everest and 4 guides were left in the camp.

Sherpas will continue to set the upper camps. Weather forecast is disappointing, it promises a hurricane for 11-12 and 14-15 of May.

So now we are getting ready to go down to 4200 to rest.

 

 

 

 

Alex Abramov:  After 3 days of rest down in the valley we are back in the base camp. It was  avery important part of expedition, we should  be fit. Many were hurt by a throat, there were other problems with health. Now all it seems in norm, all are ready to climb. The weather forecast promises daily decrease in a wind.

Sherpas are working to equip camp with all necessary. They promise that the first group will be able to go up to the North Col at May 16.

Now we were divided into 2 groups. The first will try to reach the top on May 19, the second – on 20th.

Here is our plan.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the world there are many ideas to surprise mankind. Among them, it is possible to carry a record of difference of height of climbing up to mountains and descent down in a cave. Now it isn't known who is a leader in this category. A guide of the 7 Summits Club Denis Provalov is trying to become the first. His plan - 11000 meters was declared few years ago. On Everest he can reach 8848 meters. In the cave – Kruber's - Voronya Denis was already at a depth of 2140 meters. In the sum – 10988 meters. It will be impossible to climb higher than Everest. And it is possible to go down, probably, still more deeply. On 12 meters it is so precisely, because his colleagues already reached 2170 meters (world record).

Today Denis Provalov will start for a climb ofMount Everestfrom the base camp.

25 июля 2020 года в составе большой группы Клуба 7 вершин юная художница Юлия Демина совершила восхождение на вершину Эльбуса по программе «Блиц». Горная тема - одна из ведущих в ее творчестве, что неудивительно, ведь она опытная спортсменка, чемпионка России по горному туризму. Свежие виды на горы Кавказа вдохновили ее на новый цикл работ. Некоторые из них она сделала прямо у убежища перед штурмом вершины. Юлия отдала их своим товарищам по скалолазанию. А теперь она приготовила подарок убежищу «Национальный парк».
