The idea of a trip was born for a reason. Nikolai Wasilewski, my great-grandfather, in the body of Russian troops was in the Persian land, fulfilling the mission of a military doctor. 100 years later, I had the opportunity to be in the Persia, now Iran, to drive on the same roads, see the same city, as great-grandfather, only this time mission is completely different, the ascenst on the highest volcano of Asia. Demavend (5671). The ascent was not so easy, altitude sickness didn't let go until the last rocky areas, a strong smell of sulfur, and at the very top of poisonous posts sulphuric steam escaping from the ground that give you extra power.

 Really happy that after 100 years of being in this region, you can feel piercing through time between generations and to dedicate the ascent to the great man Vasilevsky Nikolai Vasilyevich!

 PS: I Hope that all the missions in the near future will be only peaceful and informative.

We started our climb early in the morning and approximately 8.30 we were at the final station of the Mont Blanc tram called Nid D'aigle (2380m). In front of us waited 7 hours of climbing through Refuge de Téte Rousse (3187m) to Refuge du Goûter (3863m) from where we would have to climb all the way to the top of Mont Blanc (4810m).
It so happened that not long before leaving for Chamonix, our program got an "easier" program because of an issue with overbooking at all shelters. But they did not take into account the fact that the 7 hour ascent (for professionals it takes five) and the attempt to climb to the the summit on the same night is a very serious test for an office manager and student. In my opinion, our chances of climbing to the top equal approximately 20%. After we reached the rock ridge (with a difficulty level of 3) along which we climbed for about 4 hours, We thought about every step we made and hoped that we got to the Refuge du Goûte. At the shelter, we had supper and went to bed around 9 pm. It is hard to sleep at such altitudes because you can feel your heart beating through your throat. You have to force yourself to fall asleep and at least slightly fill up your energy. We are going to wake up in 2 a.m. We are waiting for an even more serious test!

In April 2017 a small group of 7 summits Club under the guidance of Olga Rumyantseva traveled to Ecuador.

The goal was, of course, volcanoes. But also important was the acquaintance with the original lifestyle of Equatorial countries, that President named Lenin. Weather conditions did not allow the group to implement all plans. But there are a lot of impressions.

 

 

 

 

 

Valery Rozov becomes first to ever BASE jump 6,768m Huascarán in South America

Valery Rozov has successfully completed the highest BASE jump in South America in his quest to leap from the highest suitable peak on every continent on the planet. The expedition was organized by the 7 Summit Club.

 

The Russian took five days to climb Huascarán in Peru, which stands 6,768 metres above sea level, often doing much of his ascending during the night in cooler temperatures when the ice congeals.

 

Climbing the technically difficult and dangerous south summit, known for ice and snow avalanches, he made it to the top safely.

 

 

He then took off 50m from the absolute peak, landing at an altitude of 4,800m and having dropped some 2,000m into the valley, freefalling in his wing suit for one-and-a-half minutes.

 

He officially conjured up the idea of the Seven Summit project in 2015 but is only now just making it public.

 

Rozov, though, began it, of sorts, in 2009 with a jump from Elbrus in Europe followed by one from Ulvetanna, in Antarctica, the following year.

 

In 2015, he leapt from Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, and last year took off from the 7,700m high Cho Oyu, Asia’s biggest suitable BASE-jumping peak.

 

“The idea of the Seven Summits project popped into my head right after my 2015 jump off Mount Kiliminjaro,” he explained. “So, I keep working on my idea to BASE jump from the highest points of all the seven continents. Every jump is, above all, a challenge to me.”

 

To complete the magnificent seven, Rozov still has BASE jumps to tackle in Australia and North America.

 

Base jump heights:

2009 — Elbrus / 4,650 m (Europe)

2010 — Ulvetanna / 2,650 m (Antarctica)

2015 — Kilimanjaro / 5,460 m (Africa)

2016 — Cho Oyu / 7,700 m (Asia)

2017 —Huascarán / 6,725 m (South America)

Day 1 (1020 m) with Savva Kalashnov

Chamonix met us with heavy rain and low clouds. But even in this weather you could see the mountain range that was rising up into the clouds and beyond. The clouds were covering the majestic beauty, but even then the view was amazing! The weather forecast for the next three days wasn't very promising. Our instructor Roman said that the cyklone turned to be pretty scary in higher altitudes, it's snowing like it's winter up there. Because of this, our program was altered to make the aclimatisation easier. By the looks of things, everyday we will decend to Chamoni× except for the last day before the final stretch. We'll see, people say it's easier to reach the summit that way. We spent this evening walking around in Chamonix, eating and buying/renting everything we needed for the climb. The city went to sleep 20.00, all the stores closed and only restaurants continued to attract us with their smell. But they couldn't lure us, we are already satisfied and tired...

See you tomorrow!

 

Day 2 (3295 m)

Training has finally started! It was awesome! The weather has finally cleared to reveal the sun, it was beautiful! We took the lift to 3295 meters, put on our "armor" and took a stroll up Glacier d'Argentière For the first time it was more than enough. While hiking up, we saw how a French climber fell down into a crack in the snow. He was walking and suddenly disappeared into the snow! We couldn't get the camera out to film his fall but we filmed how he was being rescued. Everyone was so calm, like it was normal business, when someone disappeares into the ground like that... And that's why you never should go into the alps alone. If your technique is good and you trust your comrades, mountaineering is an awesome hobby... But if not, it can be very dangerous, mountains don't allow errors! @ Chamonix, Mont Blanc 3842m

 

Day 3 (3842 m )

I barely have power to write this today! Today was a very productive day, this day started in Aiguille du midi 3842. The walk was completed with good spirit and almost without altitude sickness. We descended from the mountain happy and tired. We also had a lot to do in the evening. Tomorrow's ascension to Reduce du Goûter 3863 is going to be at least twice as hard as today's walk. And the challenges that await us during the night on the 29th of July are scary to think about! We set clear goals in front of us and fight. Our motto is "bravery and stupidity" 😜😬 See you tomorrow! @ Aiguille du Midi

Lenin peak base camp (3800). Meet at the end of the table, just having down from the summit of Lenin peak and had 25 first ascent to this peak, Boris Korshunov. This veteran of nearly 82 years (born 31 August 1935), it is a unique 9-time "Snow leopard".

At the time, Boris participated in biological programs of the Institute of Space Biology and Medicine for detection of possibilities of the human body. In particular: the tolerance of man -60°C in a light suit, with vigorous blowing. So you want to wish to each of us in his 82 preserved health the Snow Leopard, zest for life and active life position!

Guide of the 7 summits Club in the Elbrus region Andrey Berezin: Today there was a busy day for the group "Masha and bears". In the morning Elbrus showed his temper and wind reached gusts of 50 km / h. Therefore, we applied the method of transportation of the yacht techniques, namely the tacks! After a while the wind dropped to 30 km / h as the forecast promised. And we immediately felt better and ran. On the way, we fixed ropes for safety of us and other groups. In the end, we reached the top at 10.15...

Hello! Alexander Abramov from the expedition to Lenin peak, from the camp at 4400. Our whole team feels good. Tomorrow we are going to go to the camp at an altitude of 5300 meters. It will be the first real climbing day with crampons and ropes. Weather, frankly, is not good. Today is the first time I saw the summit of peak Lenin. And it is now again closed. Well, after lunch usually is snowing. Even with the thunderstorm. But we will hope for the best. While acclimatization – it is no worry. In a week when we go climbing, we'll see. All is good here: a lovely camp, great food. We all like to treat us just fine. Well, in General, everything is fine, don't worry. Photos can't send as a call via satellite. Mobile communications are not working. The mood is great, the team is good and it is called "ninja Turtles" because we go slow, like turtles. All bye everyone! Until next communication, I hope with 5300!
