Good afternoon! Ludmila Korobeshko reports from the expedition to McKinley. We are now in Camp Ranger, at 4300 ... Today, June 30th, we have a day of rest. Yesterday we nade a depot, as planned in the assault camp. In fact, the day was quite heavy. We woke up early, but it was very cold at night, probably minus twenty. So we decided to wait for the sun, and only 11 a.m. we left the camp. Gone with fixed ropes and a little more along the ridge to Washburn’s Thumb. We returned happy but tired. So today the rest is very logical. In addition, the snow began at night ... We rest, look at weather forecasts and are already preparing for a summit bid. As soon as the window will appear, we will try to go upstairs to the assault camp, well, then, according the weather - on the ascent. All members feel good. Best regards!

We (Igor and I) climbed the top twice - on Friday and Saturday. Andrey did not reached the summit on a Friday and we decided to accompany him on Saturday. In general, the ascent is quite simple - the guides told us that we could go without them, there is only one road, so that we went ourselves. In terms of organization, there have been some delays along the route, but still within a few slow "Eastern" the passage of time. We like a refuge – it is very comfortable. All: electricity, water, toilet - at the highest level. Guides, Miriam and Mohamed, pleasant to talk to, but not really sportive .... Hotel became lower class than expected (breakfast was so-so), but it's still Iran. We liked that the head of the agency, Ali invited us to dinner at his home on Sunday. Very warmly welcomed, treated, showed how the Iranians live at home, meet their friends. We thank him for it!

Group members: Igor Gorenko, Andrey Prozukin Konstantin Ryzhak, Konstantin Smirnov.

Hello everyone! It is Vladimir Kotlyar, the new group began its work on the program "Climb Elbrus". Today is our first day of acclimatization. And now we are on our finishing point on the summit of Mount Cheget, at an altitude of 3500. The weather is bad, everything around is covered with clouds, hail and rain. But, in principle, something is visible. Here I am now, for example, I see a waterfall Girlish braids, the observatory, lake Donguz-Orun and the people standing around me. They feel good, they drink tea. And I think I will join them, because it will be warmer and more interesting.
That’s all... I go to drink tea. Adios!

Hello! There is Ludmila Korobeshko from the expedition to McKinley. Today we had a day of adventure, so to speak. And the Mount showed to some extent, a difficult character. It all started as usual on the plan, as we planned. At 4 am we went out and walked through Windy Corner, we went to the place of getting a depot. And as we walked quickly and vigorously, we decided to bring our depot even to the Camp Ranger. We dug in it and on the way back, near Windy Corner, a strong wind started ... and also started a blizzard, snow. And all this went on until the camp. With difficulty we have found in this blizzard our camp. We were happy that we managed to do. The weather turned bad and our plans may change, but we have time to spare. Bye!

Alex Abramov from Chamonix: Yesterday our team "survival school” in Chamonix moved to Italian side and rose to Helbronner station, 3350m altitude. There we were met by a snowstorm. That is to say, from summer to winter.

By lunchtime, the weather became better and we were able to hold classes on climb-up - traverse- descent on fixed ropes. Also as self-arrest and belay on the snow.

Then put up a tent, we have worked at overnight in tents in the snow.
In the morning the weather has finally deteriorated, however, our team still managed to climb the nearest “unnamed” peak.

We gave it a new name - La Pipka.

All members of the group agreed that, classes were great, it was very interesting and useful.

In the evening I moved to Valery Rozov, Andrei Volkov and Sasha Ruchkin. They warmed and lured me to go with them to one of the peaks south of Chamonix.

Wait for new messages!
