On Earth, there is a lot to be surprised! For example, Greenland. The title, "green earth" - in reality "white". Ice kingdom for hundreds, thousands of kilometers. The world's largest island, which could be considered as a separate continent draw. After all, it is nor America nor Europe. Now are we able to fully publish a photo gallery from Lyudmila Korobeshko. Admire! - 182 pictures!

 

The first and unique expedition of the 7 Summits Club in the distant and mysterious, cold and snowy Greenland. It was from 7 to 17 of May 2014. Although in 2011 the two Russians have already visited the highest peak of the Arctic Gunbjorn (3693m), this expedition can be a lot of time to apply the epithet "first". The first in the history of Russian mountaineering team of climbers in the amount of 5 people. The first Russian woman on the highest peak of the Arctic, the first ever simultaneous lifting of three Russians on Gunbern. Russian first ascent of the second highest peak - Dom (Dome) 3682 m ... The list could go on, but for now we invite view photos of Greenland ...

Alex Abramov and Luda Korobeshko came to Elbrus region for work and fun. Tomorrow they will celebrate Women's Day on March 8. Our local office is preparing for a new season that starts from May Days. For two years we use for Mount Elbrus our favorite Refuge – LEAPrus...

 

 

Our programs:

Elbrus by classic route, 8 days

 

Elbrus climb with traverse from south to north, 8 days

 

 

 

In 2013 Italian architectural firm LEAPfactory has constructed a new energy-efficient hotel on the southern glacier of Mount Elbrus, in Russia's Caucasus mountain range. Generally considered the highest peak in Europe, Mount Elbrus has a summit of 5,642 m (18,510 ft). The hotel in question is located 3,912 m (12,834 ft) above sea level, hence its name: LEAPrus 3912.

 

 

Depending on your point of view, Mount Elbrus could be considered the highest peak in Euro...LEAPrus 3912 features a 8.6 kw photovoltaic system and a solar thermal system, both comple...The modules boast 46 beds, a living area, restaurant area with kitchen, toilets, reception...The hotel has an expected lifespan of 50 years.

 

 

The hotel has a total area of 139 sq m (1,500 sq ft), and comprises four prefabricated modules, which were constructed in Italy before being shipped over to Russia and deposited on the mountainside by helicopter. The modules were then assembled and made operational over a few days in July. They boast 46 beds, a living area, restaurant area with kitchen, toilets, reception, and staff accommodation. The hotel has an expected lifespan of 50 years.

Given the remote location, and the expense and technical difficulty of receiving supplies, it makes good sense to ensure that LEAPrus 3912 is as energy-efficient as possible, and LEAPfactory did indeed install a range of technology to bring this about.

LEAPrus 3912 features a 8.6 kWp photovoltaic system and a solar thermal system, both complemented by a standard gas-burning generator, efficient LED lighting, and an underfloor heating system that's designed for low-temperature usage.

An efficient ventilation system helps mitigate heating requirements, and a sewage plant designed for high-altitude usage has been installed that promises almost 100 percent recycling of human waste. The hotel also sports an integrated system that melts the ample quantities of snow to supply water to sanitation services.

The energy-efficient tech is managed by an energy monitoring system, that in turn is regulated by a computer that can be remotely controlled via satellite.

LEAPrus 3912 was constructed for the North Caucasus Mountain Club, and opened for business last month.

The organizers of the "Piolet d'Or" contest surprise all and delight us. They changed all formats of determination the winners. This year, two experts made a large list of climbing, which they liked. And a big jury had already chosen three winners.

Among them, and our St. Petersburg friends! CONGRATULATIONS!

 

 

April 9-12, Chamonix – Courmayeur awaits them for a pleasant trip, without a usual nervous tension. Most likely, French will not change their minds, as for "Mistral".

That's what we wrote last December, congratulating a guide and coach of 7 Summits Club Alexey Lonchinsky to obtain "Russian Golden Piolet": "Congratulations to our tour guide, coach and friend, a wonderful guy and a wonderful athlete Liosha Lonchinsky! Deserved victory! All the others were also good, worthy contenders. But experts still knew things when adjudicated. Now it is up to the French (world) Piolet d'Or! "

Vladimir Kotlyar climbed another two volcanoes in Ecuador

Guide 7 Summits Club Vladimir Kotlyar reports from Ecuador:

For 4 days we had to go two peaks: Ilinitsa North (5126m) and Cotopaxi (5897m)! On the first day of spring in 6 a.m. we left for the summit Ilinitsa North, whose height is 5126 meters above sea level. We started from a shelter Nueve Horizontes (4700 m). At nine in the morning we were at the top, climbed up in three hours.

Cotopaxi (5897 m) - this is the highest active volcano on earth. March 3rd we reached the summit of this snow-ice giant, sometimes slightly "smoked". Climbing started from a shelter at an altitude of 4800 meters above sea level in the morning. After half an hour of walking, we had to put on crampons.

But the most vivid impression were at the top, because it was not just the highest point with stunning views of the surrounding space. The top decorated by an unusual giant crater which is smoking little by! This crater is 800 meters in diameter and 300 m deep! It's really impressive, so take my word (and better check yourself).

We came down before lunch, plunged into the car and drove to Baños! We deserve a rest!

Now we proceed to the Galapagos ...

Marina Nagel (Germany) and Gennady Puzankevich (Belarus) climbed up to the Uhuru Peak, the highest peak in Africa, Kilimanjaro massif, on the program of 7 Summits Club. Natalia Lavretzkay also was with them in the expedition, but she did not reach the top. The usual route, but it was not quite normal ascent. The fact is that Gennady did it in slippers on his bare feet. Not for the sake of records, not to impress someone. He always walks barefoot and followed his tradition on Kilimanjaro. Mountain shoes were in a backpack.

Gennady Puzankevich – in general, is an outstanding person, with a unique profession - he taxidermist makes stuffed animals. But the main thing - the whole way of his life on nature and his own style in all...

 

Belarussian taxidermist Gennady Puzankevich lives in his house in the town of Zhodino, some 50 km (31 miles) east of Minsk, Gennady, one of the most well-known taxidermist in Belarus, has produced some 7000 birds and animals for domestic and international clients during his 40 year-long career. His private collection numbers some 250 birds and animals.
