Alex report: Hello! Yesterday, May 25, our second team (all members and guides) also reached the summit of Everest. The weather was not very good. There were many people, too many. So we could not go down immediately to the camp ABC, as we usually do. The team spent the night at the camp an altitude of 7700 meters. Now we slowly continue to descend to ABC. We're good ... and perfectly. I will try to dictate names of summiters. First two Ladies: Iwona Zadarnowska from Poland and Natasha Matusova from Russia. Now on: Alexander Abramov , Sergey Larin , both for the sixth time, Dmitry Ermakov, Alexey Boutin ... Who else ? Igor Stolyarov, Vladimir Voronin of Ukraine, seven Sherpas and Ravil Shamgulov, a Canadian citizen. I hope no one has forgotten.

It was difficult climb, very difficult. But actually we were lucky with the weather. Because when the number of 100 people in one day started, if a hurricane or some snow, then some people would have remained on the mountain. That's right. In our expedition all climbed the top:

14 members 3 guides and 14 Sherpas.



All except those who left us after acclimatization due to illness. I mean Kostya Ugriumov and Patrick Butler from Ireland.

Now we are all on the North Col , but it is still too early to celebrate ....

 

Alex Abramov from Everest: SUMMIT! Our first team was on the top at 7 a.m.

Surnames : Vasya Kernitsky, Zygmunt Berdyhovsky from Poland, Derek Mahon from Ireland, and Russian - Anton Seleznev, Sergey Dmitriev, Denis Abuev, Vlad Lachkarev. All now in the process of descent from the top…

And the second team goes to meet them from the camp of 7700, hopefully tonight to make the same heroic feat and go down alive and healthy. Goodbye!

Lyudmila Korobeshko from an expedition to Greenland in the peak Gunnbjorn. Yesterday, May 13 we made another ascent. We all climbed the second highest mountain in Greenland - the peak Dome. Ascent was much more difficult than climbing on Gunnbjorn, because we went straight from the base camp to the summit, from 2200 to 3700 m. The weather was surprisingly cold. That is, the tent was minus 20, and actually at the top it was minus 30 or lower. We went around 12 hours on the ascent and descent. However, the descent was fast and pleasant: skiing on virgin snow .

Tomorrow, May 15, it should be a plane for us. If all goes well, May 15, we'll be in Iceland. Goodbye!

Our team sits at the base camp and it looks like another 10 days the weather will not good. Forecast gave a good weather on May 27, may be. Of course, if the monsoon not comes.

We tried to have fun, watch movies etc. Billiards Championship of camp is in full swing. Maybe we'll go down to catch trout. Natasha and Sergei cooked Russian salad and fried potatoes.

In general, this year the weather does not make us happy: on the top constantly there is strong wind 100 km / h and more. Sherpas team have not fixed the ropes and said that until May 25 they could not do it.

The main thing that our mood is GREAT !

Hi! Lyudmila Korobeshko from the expedition to Peak Gunnbjorn in Greenland. We did it! We went to the top of Gunnbjorn, the highest summit of Greenland and just few minutes we came down here to assault camp. The ascent was interesting, very beautiful, we were lucky with the weather. However, there was a lot of snow, so we were relatively slow. As a result, it took 6 hours on the climb up. But, in general, nothing to regret, excellent view, a lot of beautiful pictures we made. And for the way down we spent an hour and a half, I guess. Because when we passed steep sections, put skis, and after only 20 minutes we arrived to the camp. Overall, every people liked this climb. Tomorrow we go back down to the base camp. And we still have two days of , think about what to do with them. Best regards!

Hello! Ludmila Korobeshko reports from the expedition to Greenland, to peak Gunnbjorn. Today it was a very difficult day, we went from the base camp to the high camp. It is from 2300 to almost 3000 meters. Actually, the idea was to try to climb from bottom to the top. But it's good that this idea was refused. Because a lot of snow we climbed slowly. We were loaded by sleigh, completely lifting the camp and all this carrying on himself. The march took nearly 7 hours, we come up from the base camp to the assault camp. Very hard day. But, nevertheless, everything is all right. We have set up camp here, and tomorrow we have to go on climbing. Have a good day! I hope tomorrow to call from the top!

Hello! I just sent the group at the airport. As you know, we have completed the program . I hope all the participants of the group liked - I have not heard a different opinion. Deep snow on the ascent added complexity. Plus, the low height of the upper camp - the day we climbed 1700m. But we were lucky with the weather. Not that it was perfect weather window, so-so - windows, but very timely. And on the climb, we do not overheat, and on top none of us was blown away .

At the top of the whole team was together, anyone on the way was not lost. Summit: at 01:00 p.m. local time, date 06.05. Due to the snow cover - downhill was fast .

Our team:

Nizhankovsky Roman,

Nyzhankivskaya Olga,

Have a good day! Lyudmila Korobeshko from an expedition to Greenland, on Gunnbjorn. So, today we were able to arrive at this world's largest island. Although the weather turned bad, we arrived at Constable Point (this is the nearest point that is already in Greenland). Despite the clouds, we made an attempt to fly farther on Twin Otter. And the pilots were able to overcome this cloudy .

Here we pitched our base camp. True, Mount Gunnbjorn we can not yet see. Our base camp is located at 5 kilometers far than usual one. And in another valley, where we see two other, quite beautiful peaks, Dome and Cone. Basically, everything is fine. However, the weather is cold enough, in the evening we were frozen. After 7 p.m. it bacame very cold, almost like in Antarctica. Probably somewhere minus 15, minus 20. But we do not lose heart, warmed up in our tents near burners.
