From Camp 2 to Camp 1 Eugene Voronov went by snowboard. We all were frozen at Camp 2 and tired as dogs. Only Eugene hovered over the steep slopes like a bird.

The real picture is as follows: the route we have mastered, all got up and spent the night at an altitude of 7100m. All are healthy and ready for a rest before attempting to assault. Now we have three nights to spend in the ABC at 5700m, and then go on the final climb.

The team:

Catherine Pozdeeva (Khanty-Mansiysk), George Kuzmin (Moscow, Russia), Anatoly Mensky (Tyumen), Cyril Muraviev (St. Petersburg) and Oleg Pimenov (Latvia, Russia). Leader: Alex Abramov.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Russian Mountaineering Legend Goes Missing During Mount Elbrus Climb

An well-known Russian-Ingush woman alpinist has gone missing on the country's highest mountain, authorities in the republic of Kabardino-Balkaria said last Wednesday.

Leila Albogachiyeva, the first Russian woman to have ascended Mount Everest from two sides, has been missing since Monday after she failed to return to the Terskol valley during her descent from Mount Elbrus, the regional Interior Ministry said in an online statement.

A team has been organized to scour Mount Elbrus — also the highest peak in Europe — in search of Albogachiyeva, but strong winds and heavy snow had hindered rescue efforts over the past two days, the ministry said.

The Leila's belongings (backpack, camera, poles, combi suit) were discovered by alpinists from the city of Nizhny Novgorod on the Eastern slopes of Mount Elbrus. Probably she left it to go to the toilet and slipped.

She had not provided her itinerary to Mount Elbrus' search and rescue team ahead of her climb, which also complicates their efforts to locate her, according to authorities.

 

 

The 7 Summits-Club: First in her nobody believed. In the team “Ingushetia on top of the world", it seemed, she was included for the statistics. There must be at least one person is a female! As she just went to the end, each time she was going to end, not giving a chance to her weaknesses. Iron will... Elbrus, Kilimanjaro, Aconcagua, finally, Everest. It seemed that was her limit. But it was followed by a second Everest, the plans were for third time. And much more... Climbing skill of her, of course, was not enough, as a knowledge, understanding. But it is unlikely to have played a role in the tragic incident. It's really a coincidence...

 

The last shooting Leila was made in the vicinity of the summit of Elbrus

 

 

According to the video camera it was recorded the 17th of September, at about 4 p.m.. Most likely on the same day, disaster struck.

Message to the rulers of the world are against the war. This is the story of a climb Leila on the summits of Elbrus

And now is the time to say Thank you to all the representatives of the 7 Summits Club. Anna Dymova, which quickly solved any issues. Andrew in the Location for your patience and tact. Three guides Albert, Alex and Sveta, which is more than all of us and patiently nursed hundred times explained everything. They are in the conditions of the weather had the right to deploy us, but they believed in us and we did not disappoint! And even the driver, by the way, who took us to the airport and back. Well done, went very quickly, but carefully. And, of course - personally to Alex Abramov, who are under the ridiculous pretext that time had not seen me, was on Elbrus at this time as it was by the time!

All this, despite the bad weather, led to the result: 8 of the 11 were standing on the top. Three women in the condition of strong wind and bad weather we barely persuaded to turn back from around 5400. Very they wanted to walk. I think this result is beautiful! But this is not all, maybe not most important - after all, 10 people have discovered a New World, a new dimension of relaxation, happiness achieved from.. Remembered tears of joy, finally...
