Sunny weather continues to pamper us.

Today we climbed to the summit of Aiguille de Toule 3500. As planned, then we  had a little practice on the glacier and solidified in the previous days knowledge by great climbing.

The 7 Summits Club started the development and production of medals for ascents on each of “the 7 summits”. Today there was the first presentation of the medal for climbing Kilimanjaro. And practicing the ceremony of awarding the medals. Medals are awarded in a festive atmosphere by dressing on the neck of each participant. Medals are only given to the summit climbers. Its will be  not sold and not given. To every coin is issued a certificate signed by the guide. At presentation of the medal women made curtsey and kiss a guide. Men stand a thank-you on one knee. These rules must be explained by the guides prior to delivery. The certificate must be completed and signed by the guide.

Artem Rostovtsev, a guide of the 7 Summits Club:

 

Rainy greetings from Papua! We are again in Timika. In short, we flew to Sugapa, and then are unable to overcome obstacles in the form of representatives of the tribe of Moni on the way to the jungle. Some time groups of tourists weren't there, and, perhaps, some time, still will not. We spent the night in a police station  and in the morning were evacuated at the first opportunity. We'll go the other routes planned tomorrow to fly to the base camp under a Pyramid Carstenz by helicopter.

 

 

Negotiations, massive entry of Papuans in the police station, talks, again talks...
