All greetings from Cape Town from Abramov and Korobeshko!

The 7 Summits Club  plans to reward climbers on the "Seven Summits", that is, the highest peaks of all continents, a special sign of honor. What will be the order of awarding, we will inform later. Now we offer you to look at the list of summiters from Russia plus those of whom we consider "our". Citizens of Russia in this list are 38 people. And they all, somehow, climbed in the programmes of the 7 Summits Club. With the exception of the first – Fedor Konyukhov, who also was in our group climbing Everest, but after the completion of the program "Seven Summits".  We are proud to note that, apparently (accurate statistics have not yet been restored), Russia is in second place in the world in terms of the number of climbers to the highest peaks of the continents. And this is the merit, first of all, of our 7 Summits Club!  We are proud!

On November 24, the leaders of the 7 Summits Club 7 Peaks Alexander Abramov and Lyudmila Korobeshko visited the opening of the exhibition of painting Vasily Nesterenko. It was a pleasure to meet legendary veterans of the national mountaineering Vladimir Shataev, Boris Korshunov, Yuri Tinin, our old friends Alexander Yakovenko, Sergey Bogomolov and Vladimir Suviga.

  "Better than the mountains can only be mountains..." this famous phrase called his new exhibition people's artist of Russia Vasily Nesterenko and it immediately gives us an idea about the theme of the exhibition.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  The exhibition presents his works made over the past 10 years after expeditions to Elbrus, Sayan, Altai Mountains and Kamchatka. The exhibition will give visitors an idea of the unique regions of Russia, the love of which the artist sings in his paintings.

The film is about the climbing route Mishorsky caves. Even in the fog it was spectacular!

Watch Vadim Khairullin's amateur film.  The passage of the climbing route (multi-pitch) Mishorsky caves. Fog, of course, greatly prevented to make high-quality shooting.  But still there is information about the route, it is clear that it is worthy to be considered one of the best in the Crimea.

 

 

Such diversity is nowhere on the Crimean climbing  routes, and the caves themselves are an amazing object.  We will wait for new, better shootings…

Today Alexander Abramov and our Ecuadorian guide Edgar Parra climbed the highest peak of Ecuador Chimborazo 6310m (the highest mountain in the world, if measured from the center of the Earth).

Today Alexander Abramov and our Ecuadorian guide Edgar Parra climbed the highest peak of Ecuador Chimborazo 6310m (the highest mountain in the world, if measured from the center of the Earth). As the ascent was accomplished without acclimatization, was one night at 3500, it went hard. But, nevertheless, we ascended to the main peak of the mountain, which is an hour from the Western peak. On this day, all the other teams turned back. Now we're going to climb  Cotopaxi.

Namaste!  Our group "Monkey Bite" today reached the end point of our base camp trekking program Mardi Himal (4200 meters).  From there we went down to the valley of the Mardi Khola river.

Now we are in the hotel at an altitude of 1900 meters. We leave for Pokhara tomorrow.

Indonesia. Papua. Expedition Carstensz-2018. 

 After a sudden successful summit the day before yesterday, we can only ask the weather to give a second chance - the opportunity to fly early from the base camp down to Timika. Didn't happen yesterday. We waited walking  to the next valley and rest.

Today, all the stars have developed in our favor, even the helicopter pilot took a chance and got a group of turns between the clouds. We were worried, but in the end we are all at the bottom level.

And now we are preparing to celebrate the climb and congratulate new sevensummiters.

 

Congratulations with Seven Summits!
