Hello! Alexander Abramov calls from the best, perhaps, in the Elbrus mountain, refuge-shelter named LeapRus. Today our team reached the summit of Mount Elbrus. This is the team Vitaly Simonovich. It consisted of 11 members and 4 guide. As a result, three guides and eight members reached the summit. One of the guides pulled down three women from this team.

And the weather was terrible, on top we spent literally two minutes. Generally, in principle, in this weather you should not go up. But there was a great desire to raise people and to introduce them to climbing.

And we went down to the shelter just in 3. 30 p.m.. With that, we started climbing at 4 a,m,. That is, it is practically 12:00 it lasted. Once again, a strong wind in the afternoon, closer to the top, the snowfall began. Visibility was about 10 meters, and can be less. But it is only in the area of ​​the top, below the saddle was all fine.

The guys all are happy, everyone is happy, thank us. In general, everything is fine ...

Tomorrow we have in the Terskol village, our office organizes, holiday season closing for the guides. Invited all our members climb Elbrus.

And I will say that the shelter LeapRus - this, of course, some fantastic tale. I can not believe that we live here. That all, good-bye!

The group went to the Western summit and safely, alltogether we descended on the North side of Elbrus. The weather doesn't indulge us panoramas, all in the clouds. But still nice - this is a native part of Elbrus for me, after all. All the best!

Hi 7 Summits! This is Artem Rostovtcev transmiting information from Chamonix. Today we happily went to the top of Mont Blanc. We - this is my group, which operates under the "Classic of the Alps" program. And a group of Sergei Larin, whose program was only for Mont Blanc. The weather was "on the brink", but we all had best time to go. On the descent the wind was such that it was possible to fly over the crest. But we do everything perfectly, it's okay. All are alive and well. Now we are in Chamonix - a lot of impressions. We have one more free day that was redundant. Once again, greetings from Artem and Sergey!

Irina Klimova and Igor Grishkov successfully completed the program, climbing to the tops of the Greater and Lesser Ararat. It was the first ascent of 7 Summits Club on the top of the Lesser Ararat, previously closed to climbers. According to the climbers: Little Ararat - separate top, and not the object for acclimatization. "... About 12 km across and up to 1600 meters. In addition, there is no path and you must climb vertically, on scree. " Hike on Lesser Ararat took 11 h (7 h up - 4 h down).

"The guides were great (Nuri and Musa). Organization at the highest level, all impeccably and professionally, and it's also very warm and friendly feel at home !!! Musa - an excellent guide and an extraordinary man. Thank you so much for the organization and for the recommendation of the guides - a good guide is the key to a successful climb! "

Good evening! This is Oksana Kotlyar, a guide of the 7 Summits Club. Our program climbing Elbrus, with traverse to the north, has been successfully completed. Despite the harsh weather conditions, we did it! The guys competed for the mountain. We walked up the knee-deep snow, made ​​a trail. A strong wind hit in the face, the snow was pretty much and zero visibility. There were doubts whether such a risk? But reaching the top, we realized that it is worth! Wind dispersed the clouds and we saw the power and majesty of Mount Elbrus. All the best!

Hello! It is the guide of 7 Summits Club Denis Provalov. Today, our group made a successful ascent to the summit of Mount Elbrus West Peak and 11 people descended on the northern side of this beautiful mountain. Heavy enough route, despite the fact that the weather was just awesome: sunny, no wind. In the morning, probably at four or five it was still cool, and then it was warm, wonderful. The result - 11 people descended on the north side, and three of our team - down to the start point, to the south. We are all very happy. We are now located in a shelter in the North. All in a good mood. Tomorrow we continue the descent toward civilization, toward the town of Kislovodsk. We hope tomorrow to get out as early as 8 am and be at 12 hours on the next camp on the north side..
