Hello! Andrei Berezin, a guide of Seven Summits, from Elbrus. Today we went to the Pastukhov Rocks. All did  it well, even excellent. In the morning we were pleased with sunny, clear weather. But by the time we reached the rock Pastukhov, the wind was blowing, wet snow started. On the rocks we sat, drank tea.

And then we went down already by the blizzard. Now there is sleet, somewhere near rumbling thunder and lightning hit. Tomorrow we have a day of rest. The Day After Tomorrow – climb Elbrus. Bye! Andrey Berezin.

Our friendly Club RRC team traveled to the Alps, to train and take part in races on the program SALOMON ZUGSPITZ ULTRATRAIL. http://zugspitz-ultratrail.com/

 It was a representative delegation of 37 participants and 4 trainers, among them were our renowned athletes, guides of the 7 Summits Club Artem Rostovtsev and Denis Provalov.

 

 

 

 The official video  of  the event

 

 

 Artem Rostovtsev:  Strong guys started for 100 km, for the weak  ones organizers offered an option of 60 km, it is - just for me. I was able to get away from the guys who end up 4th and 5th places were taken, they have some problems with the downhill  running, what I took.

I watched the future winners of the first rise, then they disappeared into the woods. But I stood on the podium with these heroes.

 

 

Denis Provalov took a very honorable 8th place in the shorter race (about 40 km).

 

 

 

Generally  the Club RRC worthy of respect! All run, all suffered, all were happy!

They were a group of 5-people, including a child of 13 years, successfully climbed the highest peak in Africa. It was not easy, but they have coped! Congratulations guys with their first summit and wish continued climbing.

 

 Comments and farewell climbers followed by Philippe Yalovega.

 

  1. Good equipment is very important! We need good equipment with membrane that protects you from wind, dust and moisture.

 

  1. Thin puff (the bottom layer under the membrane) for the assault enough.

 

  1. Good hiking boot that kept the ankle, it is necessary to Throughout the route (with the lowest camps).

 

  1. Sleeping need really good (at -15-20 in comfort)! This is veryimportant!

 

  1. We must always listen to the recommendations of guides: drink more water, go slowly, etc ..

 

  1. It makes sense to go after climbing to a glacier to do beautiful pictures.

 

  1. It is important to go to the assault and day transitions during that meet the sunrise is on the edge of the crater, and not on the slopes, and to have time to enjoy the surrounding views in daylight.

 

  1. The seven-day program climbing (with an extra day acclimatization) - is the salvation! Without much experience considered short program makes no sense !!!

 

 

Comments from 7 Summits Club:

"We always pay attention to the importance of the equipment and importance

implement the recommendations of the guides, but the final understanding, as a rule,

It occurs only on the route. Preparation is very important. "

 

"It is important to choose the ascent route on Kilimanjaro properly taking into account the experience of the participants of the mountain! It affects the chances of a successful ascent, the health of participants and the general impression of the trip."
