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
On the morning of May 18ер 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
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

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
