Alex Abramov, a leader of the Everest expedition:

Today, finally, we got to Lhasa and settled in the cool Intercontinental hotel. We need to give people a rest from the expedition life, it was difficult to live under field conditions for 40 days. A little about outcomes. We conducted an expedition in 39 days. This is probably the shortest of the Everest expedition for 10 years. The experiment was a success and showed that it is possible. Just do not economize , let more oxygen.

After all, all problems on the high altitude are from the lack of oxygen.

 

In our expedition there was records and remarkable achievements. And some of them we pointed out today.

 

Janusz Kochanski – world record of 126 days on all 7 summits.

 

 

Eugene Kravt successfully completed the 7 summits project.

 

Aznaur Akaev – 3rd Balkar climber who became a summiter of Everest.

 

Valery Tebiev – the first since 1995 Ossetian mountaineer who climbed Mount Everest.

 

Daniil Briman - made the ascent in sporty style.

 

Andrei Starikovsky, the first Russian American Professor on Everest.

 

Other heroes: world women record holder Lhakpa Sherpa, Oleg Savchenko and Alexander Sidyakin have already left home.

 

Sergei Larin – 6th time on the summit of Everest.

 

Alexander Abramov – 8 times – a new record for Russia and the CIS.

 Oleg Savchenko, Everest summiter in the team the 7 summits Club, a former Deputy of the Duma of the Russian Federation:

 Yes, we managed, as promised, to preserve fully but  the one body. This is the body of Lihteneker Marko from Slovenia. All dead climbers that are on the slopes, they are in different poses. I was just horrified. I thought when they announced this action, I saw pictures in internet but it was not so impressive. It's a terrible sight to see people who are 20 years, 40 years in that condition, with that expression on his face, with which they died. And we have not much time but did it.

 I am very grateful to the Sherpas who accompanied us, that they agreed to help us. According to their faith, they are forbidden to touch the dead bodies. I went in one group with Alexander Sidyakin, my friend and Deputy of the Russian State Duma. We were accompanied by two Sherpas.

 

  

We also managed to cover the "famous" green boots. Everyone knows that at the level of 8 500 meters... (said with heavy breathing - approx. ed.)... Sorry, I now the air is not enough... In 1996 there died one Indian climber Tsewang Paljor, he just lay down to rest and froze to death. His body had frozen into stone. He had a green climbing boots. And all the climbers began to determine the height to talk about the green shoes. This is the mark of 8,500 meters.

 We were able to do some semblance of the grave, covered his body with stones. Now there is no this reference. I think it's better to use gadgets for navigation than dead body.

 Another body of a climber from Ireland we tried to pull out, but were unable. He hangs on the ropes at the altitude 8600 meters. When we have been trying,  I have "flown" the glove, I ended up frostbitten hands. And then it was impossible to continue.

  Most importantly, all of the climbers in base camp have supported our initiative. It is about 600 climbers of all nationalities, from all over the world. From South Africa, India and to North America. Moreover, it was supported by the official Chinese…

 Marko Lihteneker (1959 -2005) was one of the first foreigners who took part in the ascent to Everest in the expedition of the 7 summits Club under the leadership of Alexander Abramov. He and his partner Viktor Mlinár positioned itself as an experienced, strong athletes who wanted  to make a quick ascent before to the top goes the main mass of climbers. And not to use the services of Sherpas.

  Marko was a member of the national team of Slovenia for ski-mountaineering and marathon runner, there was no doubt about his physical condition. And his friend Viktor had no doubt that there is something wrong in the fact that his comrade  goes behind. Just Marko all the time had small problems with the oxygen equipment he set up. Mlinár was afraid of frostbite and so I decided to go without delay. Be with them, someone from the Sherpas,  a misfortune most likely could have been avoided. Lihteneker died on the descent from the summit of Mount Everest, a problem with the oxygen equipment apparently played a major role in this. The frozen body of  the Slovenian climber, hung on ropes at a height of 8800 meters, more than 10 years the terror of the rising climbers. And now the body is covered. Hope for a long time. Will check in a year.

Alexander Abramov, leader of the expedition, from camp 8300.

 Our entire team at 8300. Already above Cho-Oyu. In General, as this is our 4th outing, everyone is feeling great. All parts of the route: base camp – middle camp, middle camp – ABC, ABC– 7000, 7000 – 7800, 7800 – 8300 we passed exactly  in 3:45. All! I'm scared that we will do tomorrow. Again 3:45 to the summit?

Now the weather at 8300 is windless. And the forecast is the same. It seems, we caught a beautiful night for climbing.

 One thing upset. It looks like tonight or this morning, one climber died five meters below 8300. It is still unknown from which expedition. But he went without oxygen. It seems the dead man is just lying around the trail.

May 14. Yay! Hooray For The 7 Summits Club!!!! There is the first ascent on Everest in 2017!

This is the team of the 7 Summits Club:  Nima Dorji Sherpa (9th time on the top) and the Female World record holder Lhakpa Sherpa, climbed Mount Everest 8th time!!! According to her story, the weather was terrible. Fixed ropes were inundated with 50 cm of snow and climbers had to pull out  it from under the snow. Near the summit there was a very strong wind and as a result Lhakpa has moderate frostbites on both cheeks.

Our second team under the leadership of Sergei Larin now  is preparing  to summit climb in the camp ABC 6400 m.

The group under the leadership of Alex Abramov  (first team) went from ABC  back  to the Base camp at 5100 m to recover and after 2 days again to start for the summit.

 The weather on Everest is now not good:  waist-deep snow and heavy wind. From the Nepalese side there is no one summit. From our side we have just a team of Sherpas who fixed rope to the top, a small team from India and our heroic deuce, headed by World record holder - Lhakpa Sherpa...

Artem Rostovtsev, a guide of the 7 Summits Club:  

For All, Nepali Hello! After yesterday's ascent on Mera Peak, today we successfully evacuated by helicopter to Lukla. Most of the team immediately flew to Kathmandu and then home, the program is completed. Others, who think it is not enough, went for a walk towards Namche and beyond. And the one, who loves to run, was lucky to see over both days Everest from two different angles: yesterday – from Mera Peak, today from the view point above Namche Bazaar.

Alex Abramov, the leader of the expedition from the North Col camp:

Day 21. May 7. The Expedition of the 7 Summits Club Everest-2017.

 

In the morning our whole team was ready to quickly run to the North Col for acclimatization. But then from the heaven came the order came to organize Puja. All expeditions have a mortar, but we do not. Therefore, only 9 am for Nepal time we were able to get out of ABC in the direction of the North Col, 7000 metres. The team was in good condition. Sometimes, though, the criticism sounded in the address of the leader: why go fast, why stand, why not stand, why not go… Difficult to satisfy all 12 people. But I think I managed – experience of old-school.

 

And here we climbed to the Saddle. Immediately it began to snow. Generally, there is snow falls afternoon every day. Now the wind is almost off, but the crazy snow is predicted for all next week. On the North Col at 7000 meters, we have a cook. And large tent with tables and chairs is installed. Thanks to this comfort, members feel more free. There is even a tent as a toilet. In short, we have a full camp. We all sleep surprisingly  good and excellent. In the morning, the Sherpas got coffee in bed. Now we have a long way down to the base camp. And tomorrow is a Holiday on May 9. We want to organize a Super-Party, which has already become traditional.
