Oleg Pimenov climbed Mount Everest as a member  of the first group of  the 7 Summits Club. He published a collection of photos on Facebook, that we remade in the report ...

 

 

 

 

We decided that the best window will be on May 20-21

 

 

15th May we come in midlle camp. Everest was clean

 

 

On the morning of the 16th Everest began to smoke.  Getting worse...)

 

 

16th of May. In the advanced base camp (ABC) there were classes on the basics of survival. The technical part of the oxygen equipment and work with it

 

 

In the palm there is your life. Regulator. Wear near your  heart!

 

 

May 17th the familiar path to the saddle of Mount Everest to 7000m. Ahead - a string of Chinese expedition. Ropes on top yet not fixed. All hopes for Chinese

 

 

North Col

  

 

On the morning of May 18 the Chinese have moved to the top of ...

 

 

We go after (for the Chinese)

 

 

Centered under stones  there is our advanced base camp – yellow spots

 

5 and a half hours, it took  the way to the camp 7,700.  Without oxygen it would  be all 7-8. Someone put in a poor tent

 

 

Here I am at home. 7700m. Behind, our goal looms

 

 

May 19th morning Sherpas moved to put the last camp. We have further 5 hours of relaxation

 

 

I admire climbers  by the window

 

 

It blows, however. Abramov said that the weather was perfect. Although sometimes difficult to resist

 

 

 

Traces of the past

 

 

That last camp 8300. The summit meets with flags

 

 

Everyday life above the clouds. All a bit nervous

 

 

The start is scheduled for an hour in the morning on 20 May. We skip ahead only Chinese. They go out at 11 pm. Breakfast

 

 

Half an hour later we reached the crest. The first stage of 8564m passed in the night,  not noticed, green shoes covered with snow. IPhone had  made 2 photos of second  step and had cold.

 

 

View of the third step, a pyramid and Chinese

 

 

Stylish design

 

 

Go along the ridge. Abramov said that it is just a walk.

 

 

The oxygen plan was to climb with two cylinders, and  one for the descent. One cylinder at maximum flow gives life for 4 hours. Before the third step  we  are changing the first balloon

 

 

The third stage and slow Chinese

 

 

 

We have passed the third step, 8710m. In front of the pyramid. With Irena Kharazova

 

 

A snowy field in front of the pyramid. With Vladimir Kotlyar and Roman Reutov

 

 

I go on the field ...

 

Fixed or non-fixed ropes

 

 

 

My Sherpa Mingma, he was on Everest 3 times from both sides

 

 

On the Everest  better  to climb at night. Pyramid

 

 

Sometimes it blows. A bit....

 

 

With acrophobia  it will be hard on Everest. Pyramid, 70 meters from the top.

 

What's the first thing you need to do at the top? Smoke break (Sherpas)

 

  

So how it looks. 8830

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Group photo. 8848m - with Irena Kharazova

 

 

In the background, a group of climbers is coming from Nepal. 8848m

 

 

Guides, video operator and my friend makes a proposal to his girlfriend. 8848m - Vladimir Kotlyar

 

 

Abramov think, in what direction to go down, Tibet or Nepal. Lyudmila Korobeshko and Alexander Abramov

 

 

Like the portrait. 8848m

 

 

No higher point is on the planet. - Vladimir Kotlyar

 

 

 

We rest under the roof - with Alexander Abramov and Ludmila Korobeshko

 

 

Everest crest

 

 

Fixed rope on the crest

 

 

Changze, the northern peak of Everest.7680m

 

 

A short rest on the descent.   No sleep here - the greatest risk  not to wake up

 

 

Saddle or 4th camp on the horizon

 

 

Yet we have to descend from the saddle. To stay alive and healthy, you need to go down to the 4 day go up to 8848 down to 6410m. If the ascent took 6.5 hours, descent – 11! Without food and water - with Vladimir Kotlyar, Alexander Abramov and Ludmila Korobeshko

 

 

At the bottom of the North Col. By tradition, the climbers on Everest left here poles - Ludmila Korobeshko

 

 

 

Well, 18 hours later I'm in advanced base camp

 

 

May 21th - it is  too early to relax to us . There was a run 23 km on the glacier to the base camp. Savings oxygen cylinder on top to be my sail -   with Vlad Moroz

  Andrey Parshin has shared pictures from Armenia. At the May holidays, he was able to climb one of the peaks of Aragats - South. The weather was not always kind to guests.

Now the entire team of 7 Summits Club successfully descended from the mountains and now is preparing  packs.

 Tomorrow, on the 25th we leave by cars in Shigatse and the day after (May 26) we plan on the flight from Lhasa to Kathmandu.

 

And now for an hour to relax and to take stock:

27 people on the top of Mount Everest!

15 members and guides + 12 Sherpas.

Several Russian and World Records! About its - below ...

 

 

Decisions on the graphics  were  difficult this year. Weather did not allow to take unequivocal decisions. Always it was snowing and it seemed that the monsoon has arrived. But the state of the route for the ascent was terrific. All the rocky areas and sloping rock slabs were covered with a thick layer of snow and firn. This allowed the speed of movement along the entire route to be the fastest.

And, nevertheless, we note that the long experience of leadership helped us to choose the best two days for climbing. That led to such a great success!

 

 

Summiters of May 20:

 

Abramov  Alexander (7 times)

Korobeshko Lyudmila (3 times) woman,

Kharazova Irena woman,

Moroz Vladislav,

Reutov Roman,

Pimenov Oleg,

Kotlyar Vladimir (all – Russia),

and a woman Lakpa Sherpa, USA - Nepal (7th time at the top of Mount Everest)

plus 7 Sherpas.

 

Summiters on May 21:

 

Hannah Noel (8 times),

Hannah Lynn (2 times), woman both – Northern  Ireland,

Sergey Larin (5 times),

Provalov Denis (2 times),

Demyanenko Igor (Russia),

Kochanski Janusz (Poland),

Yalovchak Tatiana, woman (Ukraine),

Plus 5 Sherpas.

 

We have once again proved that the 7 Summits Club team was not only the biggest and well secured on the North side of Everest, but also the most experienced and most successful. 15 of the 16 members of the expedition reached the summit. One participant climbed up only to 8500 m, for health reasons.

And most importantly, that all are alive and healthy, cheerful and happy, and all remained friends.

 

The leader  of the 14th expedition on Everest  of the 7 Summits Club

Alexander Abramov

 

 

 

Record achievements of the expedition:

 

** Lhakpa Sherpa - the first woman of the 7th seven times ascended Mount Everest.

 

Alexander Abramov and Ludmila Korobeshko - the first married couple, three times to climb Mount Everest.

 

Noel and Lynn Hannah - the first married couple to climb Everest by two routes.

 

Ludmila Korobeshko – new record of Russia and Europe in the number of ascents on Mount Everest among women.

 

Alexander Abramov - the first Russian in the 7th time to climb Mount Everest.

May 20th, 2016, 8 a.m.  Nepal time. The Flag of the 1st Russian women's Everest expedition raised above the highest peak of the planet.

Two climber of our women's team were able to climb to the top - Ludmila Korobeshko and Irena Kharazova. Liana Chabdarova is not reached about 300 m vertically.

 

 

The last days before the assault she was on analgesics, overcoming back pain. On the night of the assault, it became clear that if the whole team will go at the pace of Liana, the successful achievement of the summit can be jeopardized. Liana was able to take a courageous decision not to delay the group and turn back from the ridge.

 

On the day of a successful assault on the top of May 20, all participants descended in the evening into the advanced base camp ABC at 6400.

May 21th the second group of 7 Summits Club climbed to the top - under the direction of Sergei Larin and Noel Hanna. Today, May 22th, after almost some rest all members descended to the base camp at 5200  (some people are still on the way and will come in an hour or two).

All members feel well. Tomorrow, May 23th – for celebration. May 24th, we hope to go in the direction of Lhasa and 26 May  to fly to Kathmandu.

 

 

Space. We are at 8700 m, passed the third stage.

It is about an hour before the top.

The yellow-blue trousers - it is Irena Kharazova. She clearly knew that the Cosmos begins after the Second Step (a key part of the route) - here every man  is for himself, no one can save ...

Only after passing the SecondStep and approaching the Third, she accidentally discovered with horror that is already more than an hour in space, cruel and merciless ...

 The only thing she begged her Sherpa - in the event of her death, he did not leave her body there, among other bodies. So he will found the opportunity to bring the Sherpa team and to pull down her body.

Thank God - she is now healthy and very happy sitting in BC and enjoying life :)

 

 

As promised, we  took at the top of Everest a small icon, which we gave Fedor Konyukhov, blessing our expedition in Moscow before leaving. More Fedor said that he will continue to pray for us. I think, also thanks to his prayers, we all went well.

 

By the way!

Luda became  the record holder of Europe in the number of climbing Mount Everest!

 

 

She is also the only woman in the world twice to finish the program "Seven Summits".

 And with Alexander Abramov - the first three times the couple ascended Mount Everest!

Lying in the Base Camp in a sleeping bag  it is easier to think than at 7000.

 

What's happening? Yes, as usual, the Chinese pulled with a fixed ropes. The Weather is snowing. The route has more than 1 m of snow. Wind is weak. It does not blow away the snow.

 

We rest in the lower camps. Yesterday there was a concert of guitar music and singing. Move for cinema. They took as participants go to bed. What else to move?

 

At the Base Camp and other camps in the abstract there are several Ukrainian girls, each of whom wants to climb Mount Everest. But they have feeble chance. And girls are slender,  gaunt already by waiting. Our Tanya is full of strength and desire!

 

In general, all are alive and healthy. And ready to storm.

 

It is kaif - in the morning to lie in a tent and philosophize. ))

Lyudmila Korobeshko: Our impulse to move sharply upward was stopped by snow and the lack of a fixed ropes. But this, in some sense, the audit showed the willingness of absolutely all the participants for the assault at any moment.

We now have probably the most difficult period of the expedition.  First of all psychologically – it is waiting with so many ever-changing introductory. The weather forecast  changes daily (or more accurately, no end of snowfall). Normal and good window is not visible.

 Information from the Chinese changed about when they will finish fixing ropes to the summit. So there are many reasons  to be fidgety. We are encouraged by the fact that no one in our team use it. Everyone understands that patience– it is a  part of successful expedition.

Almost all participants had been ill, stopped to wash (to not get sick again;), everything getting thinner and tanned, we got used to each other.

Today we go to the Middle Camp to 5800. While as on the trip, but we'll see ...
