Two groups of the 7 Summits Club climbed for acclimatization rotation on the Pastukhov Rocks. They slept in different refuges and climbed in different ways and at different times.  May Elbrus showed itself in all its glory: it is a bright sun, and the wind with snow grains, and clouds, and frost. From the Rocks of Pastukhov (4600m) climbers could see the Western and Eastern peaks and the saddle between. After admiring the magnificent panorama, all people went down to rest in the camp.

Hello from Bolivia! Our group successfully mastered the altitude of 3200 meters in La Paz and today moved to the legendary lake Titicaca. On the lake we stopped to visit the family who helped Thor Heyerdahl build boats for his expeditions. When you imagine how these boats went across the ocean, you realize that this was fantastic.

Our next target was the island of the Sun.

We took a boat to the island of the Sun. Forty minutes on the beautiful Titicaca and after a traditional lunch we walked the first small but very beautiful trekking to our hotel.

A sunset we met at the observation point with a beautiful view…

Our very long day ended with a wonderful dinner.

 Artem Rostovtsev, guide the 7 Summits Club:

 The team returned to the base camp. The strategy of successful ascent is the same for all: consistently rotation after rotation to get used, as far as possible, to new heights. And then rest at base camp. So the day before we got used to the height of the Advanced camp (ABC) at 6400. We also got acquainted with our team of Sherpas, and conducted training with them using fixed ropes.  And now we will observe the forecasts and may have to speed up the climb to the North Col. It is exciting!

Alex Abramov, expedition leader of the expedition:

 Today our team rested in the Base Camp.  Official representatives of the Tibetan mountaineering federation came to us and took money for the arrangement of fixed ropes way. So far, the route is not equipped, even to the North Col. They say that avalanche danger exist.

 Life in the camp went on as usual: shower, massage, bar, visiting. The neighbors played Rugby, which was the first time here. And we were learning a new invention: “Sherpa rope”. So we called a short link between the membert and Sherpa. It was my idea to improve security. Now the responsible Sherpa will be connected to his member with a 3-meter rope.

Greetings from Ecuador! Today at 07.30 am local time we all  together  reached the summit of Chimborazo, 6310m!!!  Hurray!! It was difficult. There is a fairly steep and long ice slope on Chimborazo. We had to go out at 00.00 (and get up at 22.30), because by lunchtime avalanches, rockfalls and very often thunderstorms, wind and blizzard. But we did it! And then we went down first to the upper camp at 5350 m, then to the hut at 4850 m, got on the bus and we are in Quito at 2900 m! Crazy day, the team - well done, thanks to the weather, all well done! We can rest at last. With you were guides Viktor Ershov and Edgar Parra.

Construction of a Luxury camp near Everest continues.  We are sure that the best camp on Everest will be built by the arrival of our team. We have developed a new kind of kitchen. It is equipped better than kitchens in restaurants of Kathmandu.  Kitchen is done in the tents form a semicircle, with hardwood floors.  There are made extractor fan, freezers, storerooms. And now we've built wooden floors in all the public tents.

 Need simply to see! Now in the Base camp from Tibet there is a constant electricity 24 hours, so all this has become possible.
