Hello everybody!  It is Vladimir Kotlyar,  a guide of  the team of Brazil's "Family Gribel." Today we went with the purpose of acclimatization to Pastukhov Rocks. Despite the fact that the weather is persistently repeated in principle "entertain, but drink!" and do not go anywhere. But anyway - we have collected will in a fist, and went upstairs.  There was a hard snowstorm,  showering  a dense snow, looking more like a rump.  In general, we came back happy, tired ... Now here we will rest a little bit and go to dinner. Well, still, tomorrow we have a day of rest. Well, we start it now. Adios!

 Public Speaking Ukrainian Summiter of Everest, expedition member of the 7 Summits Club, Tatiana Yalovchak visited Moscow. She paid tribute to the teachers in mountaineering Sergei Kovalev and Elena Kovaleva, who now live and work in the capital of Russia. Surprising  it took place almost in the form of a dialogue with the audience, which is not often. We can call it a success and a credit to both sides. The audience was curious, and Tanya spoke easily, but at the same time emotionally and honestly.

 

You are free to listen to excerpts of her speech

 

 

Subjectively, we note four points:

 

(1) Tatiana has been climbing for about 8 years. She went into the mountains as an amateur. It  is her climbing teacher Sergei Kovalev, who suggested the idea - to become the first Ukrainian Everest woman summiter. On his initiative and this meeting took place.  Many Thanks!

 

(2) From the beginning to the end of the expedition Tanya felt as a child.  It means full service, excellent living conditions and the best provision -  full opportunity to be focused only on their own physical condition. Quality of service 7 Summits Club praised.

 

(3) From the first to the last minute, Tanya had no doubt of success, never appeared  the idea that you can give up and retreat.

 

(4) At the urging of Alex Abramov, Tatiana decided not to make the race for the "Ukrainian championship" with another contender - Irina Galay. Tatiana went to the summit climb a day later to  avoid someone's haste. After all this haste would not only prevent the summit ascent, but also lead to more dire consequences. It's  some kind  of a moral victory of Tatiana Yalovchak.

 

(5) And there are no plans connected with the mountains. Rest, watch football at the European Championship, to get married and give birth...

 

Happiness to you Tanya! We will be still hoping to meet on a mountain trail.

Hello! This Vladimir Kotlyar (a guide of the 7 Summits Club), climbing program Elbrus  with a Brazilian group of Gribel family. Today we made acclimatization to region of  the Refuge of  Eleven. We spent time training with ice axes, crampons, tumbled  in the snow. It was fun, cool!  Now we are down to Terskol to spend here one more night in the warmth and comfort. With a warm shower, a white toilet, I do not know what else ... a delicious meal, which is prepared by chef. Well, in general, we're leaving tomorrow already on the mountain, with refuge overnight stay. All the best! Bye!
