Vladimir Kotlyar, a guide of the 7 Summits Club:  adventures of Russians in Papua begin!!!! We got to Jayapura after long and painful seats in planes and airports. The Papua met by the heat and the greenery. Such a contrast after the Russian frosty winter….

 This time we have made a special program – it starts immediately in the Papuans-cannibals, so that participants better acclimatize and get used to the world of Papuans.

Passed this stage, they will be admitted to the subsequent ascent to the highest point of Australia and Oceania - Pyramid Carstensz.

 Members of the expedition:

 Irina Zisman (great Amazon, recently returned from South America and Antarctica with Vinson and Aconcagua in his belt);

Irina - beauty Ambassador at the Seven Summits

 George Sadetsky (who has already climbed Everest and Vinson);

 Mikhail Kornev (just few days as ascended of Orizaba with Sergei Larin).

On March 2, Alexander Abramov and Lyudmila Korobeshko showed themselves to the St. Petersburg audience. At the invitation of our friends from the company "Red Fox" they performed in the store Planet Sport. The lecture was originally supposed to be dedicated to the speed record set by team Alpari, headed by Lyudmila Korobeshko in 2012. But Alexander Abramov at the last moment introduced the topic adjustments. "Seven Summits in seven weeks. The impossible is possible" - at first I thought that it was some kind of joke. But listen for yourself (in Russian):

On March 1th, the hall of the 7 summits Club was crowded. Our small room could barely accommodate all those wishing to attend one of the leading national authorities in mountaineering Ivan Dusharin. Vice-President of Federation of mountaineering of Russia, "Snow leopard", a three-time Everest climber, a writer, an outstanding organizer, a wise and sympathetic person.   The theme of his lecture: "The legendary ascent of the impregnable K2." In 1996, the team under his leadership, composed of Togliatti climbers and reinforced by several strong athletes from the regions of Russia, made a bold attempt to storm the second highest peak in the world. K2, or Chogori – mountain of beauty and treacherous, not every year it allow mountaineers to reach the summit. Here and that year it gave the mountaineers only a small chance. And for the success they paid an expensive price. You can learn all that from the recording of the lecture, which will appear on our youtube channel on Monday or a day later.

Nastya Kuznetsova, guide and Manager of Club 7 Vershin:

News from Tanzania, from the group of Nikolai Sokolov.  And some more information on the end of the season on Kilimanjaro.

 Yesterday on March 1th Nikolay Sokolov's group went down from the mountain and returned to civilization where they were waited by a shower, a festive dinner and pure warm bed. Everyone was tired, but satisfied and happy. According to them everything was cool, but suddenly hard!  On the slopes they had to work out in full, but immediately it is clear that all the efforts and careful preparation were not in vain.

 I would also like to note that for this season January / February 2018 (2 months!) with the 7 Summits Club, more than 100 people climbed the highest peak of the African continent!!!!

And HORROR! We even miss our bronze medals of the 7 Summits Club “For climbing Kilimanjaro”, which we sent to Tanzania for the upcoming season. We offer our deepest apologies in advance to the groups that have successfully reached the summit and are now going down for the imprudent mistake on our part. But, of course, all participants will be awarded.

Every climber will be invited to the ceremony in person!

Our old friend Boris Egorov returned to the team of coaches of the 7 Summits Club. As the record-holder of Russia, and maybe Europe's, speed climbing on El Capitan's Nose route, he joined the training of the team preparing for Yosemite climbing.

 

Boris Egorov: Last weekend we held the second cycle of training before climbing on El Capitan.

Climbing technique, high-speed races on the wall, practicing in belay skills and even a little exercise with ice tools. The guys are training hard for the ascent.

Just 2 weeks ago, we showed different ways to climb up the rope, and last weekend they, with ease, climbed 100 meters, dragging the load!

The team of Japanese mountaineers, who climbed to the highest summit of Antarctica mount Vinson under the leadership of Alexander Abramov, included one unusual person.  Unusual appearance it could cause a question, whether everything is in order with her head.  Don't worry, it's all only a game! But the game is not amateur, but very professional.  Ayako Imoto is a real star of Japanese television. Moreover, the star is in comedy plan, professionally trained and with experience as a comedian on television for more than 10 years.

 

 

In 2007, she started working with a team called Sekai no hate made itteq, which means I couldn't figure out exactly. But judging by the videos, their range of interests is quite wide. With regard to Imoto, she was given the image of a naive girl in a popular apparel: mix school uniforms and sailor. And most importantly, distinctive feature – a strange and  hard painted eyebrows. Over time, another feature of her specialization was determined. The plot of the program was based on adventures in different natural places, contact with animals, people of different cultures. Humor was side by side with serious stories.

 

 

In 2009, the television team together with Ayako made a successful expedition to Africa with the ascent of Kilimanjaro. After that, there were born "Napoleonic plans" - and why not "seven summits"? In 2011, with great difficulty they climbed Mount Aconcagua and began to prepare for Everest. In the fall of 2013, they successfully climbed to Manaslu. And the next spring the team went to Everest, from the South, of course. It is known that that year almost everything, except one Chinese woman, stopped ascension after the tragedy which carried away lives of the whole group of Sherpas. Imoto also wanted to continue the assault on the summit, but the leadership decided to bring this issue to the vote of the viewers. And the majority turned to the expedition to stop. Apparently, the second attempt will be soon. After Everest, Ayako went to the other two key peaks of the project: Denali and Vinson. Will she end the project with Elbrus? In any case, Welcome to Russia!

Sergey Larin, a guide of  the 7 Summits Club from Mexico, the third Day. 23.02. Acclimatization ascent to the top of  La Malinche, 4450 m. We left the shelter at 3000 m in 7 a.m., after 6 hours we were at the top. Local guide Julio accompanied us. And also a dog who earned a sandwich for climbing to the top.  After the descent we moved to a hotel in Tapana, closer to Orizaba.  Everyone is tired, yet it was a climb up  to 1400m in height, and only on the third day. Tomorrow it will show, I hope, that we will recover completely.

Hello, Seven Summits! There's a broadcast coming in. We did it, we stand at the top. Valery Myasoedov, Svetlana Tatum and Vladimir Kotlyar are on the highest point of South America at the top of mount Aconcagua.

For me and Valera  it is a double celebration. We ended the season with a successful third ascent to this beautiful mountain. So, wait for us soon at home! All hugs, kisses, miss you and love!

Olga Rumyantseva, guide and manager of the 7 Summits Club, our representative in the international women's expedition to the North pole:

 First, any one of the team certainly did not expect such training.  The whole day of the snow storm. Other groups who find themselves in nature, were evacuated by rescuers. The road was closed. The tent broke.  We could move freely only on all fours and very brief. Inadvertently raised shovel leads to a decrease in this situation. We dig up, holding the tent, the rescue was not required. In general, it was a good training. . Hopefully on the way to the pole we did not encounter such mess...

Hello Seven Summits Club  and everyone who watches our video diary! Ku-ku! We are at the top of Aconcagua with Cyril.

The weather is perfect!

We caught this weather window.…

Five and a half hours and we're on top.

Kirill is an animal, simply. The fire horse.

Weather... I’ve never been in such weather on this mountain. Honestly word! Warm, no wind at all. I mean, we got the perfect window. Now we are going to go down, because in a few days I may make a re-ascent. We should get some rest tonight.
