Andrey Berezin, a guide of the 7 Summits Club:

Greetings from the Elbrus Region!  Part of the group was able to change tickets and make a second attempt to climb Mount Elbrus.  Let me remind you: the first attempt was stopped at an altitude of 5300 meters due to the high avalanche danger. The weather forecast was favorable on the weather Internet resources. In fact, the weather was not what the weather sites said. Tonight a large number of people startede. But in the end on the route to the top we met only a few people. Wind, snow, fog and frost are our companions of this ascent.

 

 

Bottom line: we're on the top! Elbrus climbing season is open!

 From April 15 to May 5, the team made three acclimatization rotations: 5800, 6400, 7000 m. All 17 members climbed the Northern Col of Everest and spent a night there in severe weather conditions: wind up to 90 km/h, avalanche-prone slopes, snow up to 0.5 meters. Dozens of other expedition tents were torn by the wind. For the 7 Summits Club 100% tents  were without any loss. All this thanks to the experience of guides Sergey Larin, Artem Rostovtsev and wise intuition of Alex Abramov  - it is his 20th expedition on 8000 m mountains and attempt for  the 10th ascent to the top of Everest.

Tomorrow morning all 17 members going on rest for 3 nights in the village  of Tashijong to a height of 4200m. And May 9 our expedition invites all 160 people from the base camp of Mount Everest  to celebrate Victory Day!!!

Olga Rumiantseva, a guide of the 7 Summits Club:  Hello from Bolivia! Today, our group climbed  a very beautiful Mount Huayna Potosi. Weather at first did not please and even we had doubts whether we will be able to make the ascent according to the plan or have to use the reserve day.  But despite the snow storm that broke out in the evening on the eve of the climb, by night the weather gave us a small window, which was just enough to climb.

The route has changed slightly since I was last here. Now you do not have to go to the top by the terrifying ridge. You can see it only from the top. But the route of climb did not become less interesting. And beauty is still in place.

From tomorrow we will start a fascinating cultural entertainment program.
