Alla Mishina: Matterhorn is conquered! This fantastic mountain is MINE! We've been here in the refuge an hour, and I can't  stop drink water and cry at the same time. Just tears pouring down - how tired I am. 13 hours of battle! There is no strength at all. Many climbers turned from the middle. Many guides have stopped  their "tourists", but my guide did not give up. This was our common feat. He's great! Thanks to the 7 Summits Club, You fulfill  dreams!

 Philip is 13 years old, he is football fan of “Manchester City” since birth, knows all the players and most legendary “battles”. And this is it for the average story, because Philip conquered Mont Blanc today and his victory he dedicated to the favorite football club and his school – Fettes College.

 

 “We heard about mountaineers at school, but after the story of Greg Mortenson (Three Cups of Tea), I obtained a new dream – to meet the dawn at the altitude of 4000 meters. This victory I dedicate to the coolest team of sportsmen, who prove to us with every game that whenever it is impossible – then it is always about new possibilities!”

Roman Venediktov together with guide of the 7 Summits Club at 6.25 am  was on top of Mont Blanc. The second member of the blitz program, who due to health (too short acclimatization) was recommended a lower object, also was not left without a summit.  The replacement of Mont Blanc was found on the Italian side of Mont Blanc. Good weather favored all climbers today.

 Today cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko with the company goes for acclimatization of the White Valley traverse. Their group moved through the tunnel to Italy, where they rose to the station Helbronner on the cable car. From there they went to the hut Cosmique, at the foot of which held snow and ice classes.

Super blitz program: Elbrus, with artificial oxygen.

17.08. Arrival in Azau at 18:00.

18.08. Obtaining equipment rentals,  cable car  for a shelter 3900 m at 11:30.

19.08.  Start at 2:00.  Departure for the ascent by snowcats. Summit at  7:00. Descent to Azau at 11:30. Transfer to the airport at 12:40. Departure from Mineralnye Vody at 17:40.

 

Mountaineer - Jamil from Baku. Before that, he was on Kilimanjaro, where after 5000 he did not feel very well. Plus lack of free time. So Jamil decided to order our oxygen program.

 

One oxygen cylinder was used completely. All went well -  without headache and ailments of the climber. A little physical fatigue on the way down. And the weather matched the forecast, the wind was strong and cold, but the climber with the oxygen  did not froze. However, little grabbed the skin on the cheeks next to the mask, as usual.

 

For those who continue to fight for the purity of mountaineering, despite the thirty-year development of commercial mountaineering in our country, I want to add. This climbing we  do not consider as mountaineering sport. The participant does not consider himself a climber. Those who go to Elbrus without oxygen, we did not consider as goats. Moreover  we applies with large respect, especially to those who goes from Azau with large backpacks.

Guide Sergey Larin.
