Artem Rostovtsev, the 7 Summits Club guide:  Georgia. Kazbek. Meteorological station. 3600m. We have a plan and we stick to it. And the weather adapts to us. Today we moved from the refuge Altihut3014 to the Kazbek meteo-station. It was not enough. And after lunch we went up another 300 meters to the chapel. The extra walk was only a pleasure. Tomorrow we will walk to the glaciers, work out, deal with the equipment, so that no technical issues remain. And the next day, when we plan to reach the top, everything will pass smoothly.

 Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club:

  Hello! Alexander Abramov from Alaska, from the Denali expedition.  Once again I remind, we have 10 Russian members and three American guides. Of our ten members we also have three guides of the 7 Summits Club and I, Alexander Abramov, as the head of the expedition. Today we are at a very good pace dragged loads from the camp 8000  to the camp 11000. That is, it was a height difference of almost one kilometer. We walked with heavy backpacks for four hours and forty minutes.  It's fast. Then we went down to the camp at 8000. The camp is in a beautiful place here, very warm, even hot at times. But we know that after a while all this, of course, will end. Tomorrow we will move our camp from 8000 to 11000 feet. We will also spend two more nights there.

 The weather is good, but promise deterioration.  All, Bye!

Andrey Berezin, the 7 Summits Club guide: the night was snowy. By the time we reached the saddle, there was a new snowfall. While we rested, gained strength, there were doubts whether to go further.  But then it began to clear up. When we started climbing the Western summit, the weather was getting better and better. As a result, at the top we were in complete calm and almost without clouds in the sky.

Two groups of the 7 Summits Club (guides Alexander Dorojukov and Andrey Berezin) reached the summit of  Elbrus with a difference of less than one hour. Congratulations!

Today they climbed the Pastukhov Rocks, to a height of about 4800 meters.  There they met with each other and made common photos.  Guides, Andrey Berezin and Alexander Dorojukov believe that all groups are ready to storm Elbrus.

Salom az Tehran!

On June 15, at 11.30, “Teheran-19” team stood at the top of Demavand. We got it  in exactly 7 hours, as planned. Weather us favored,  this was the best morning over the past 3-4 days. In the upper third, we froze a little from the strong wind, but got the stored down jackets, and the problem was solved. Cloud whirl near the top turned out to be emissions of sulfur dioxide, it makes an impression! ... Well, that West wind will carry the greater part of the accumulations to the side…

 And the top!...

 

 

 

 

We chose the option to go down by  snowy slopes, using stashed crampons. It's faster and safer!

 

 

 

On the same day we ran to the bottom, to the mosque, and from there - to Polur at 2200 m. It was hard, but we really wanted to be down.

 

 

We spent a night in Polur, and in the morning we received traditional congratulations and certificates from the Federation of mountaineering of Iran.

 

 

And famous photos of red poppies!

Today we opened a new rocky route called "Alex" on Mount Shan-Kaya in Crimea.  Our guide Sasha Marinkevich and his team equipped, probably, the easiest route on, probably, the most difficult rocky face of Crimea.

The route leads  along the left ridge of the mountain. The difficult of the pitches  is up to 6A-6B. Probably an even simpler route  named "Lucy" will be equipped by the next fall. Thank you creators!

Guide Valery Myasoedov from Iran.

Today, on June 11, “Tehran-19” group climbed Tochal peak with a height of 4000 m within the framework of the acclimatization program for Demavend.

 

The day before we went up to the shelter along a picturesque path along the Darband river. The rise was simple, three hours do not even have time to enjoy the views.

And the most important view was waiting upstairs, on the terrace of the shelter, from where, from a height of 2800 m, you can see the whole huge 13 million Tehran, playing with all the lights in the dark.

 

Our guide Mahior never ceases to surprise us with his care. Everything here is worked out to the last detail, not a minute of delay, cook delicious, constantly join the exquisite Iranian cuisine.

 

In the morning we went to the top of Tochal, on the road talking with many Iranian tourists, for whom climbing Tochal is  an usual walk.  We climbed at a good pace for 4.5 hours, which shows the serious attitude of the group for climbing Demavend.

 

Our Russian flag was popular. Friendly Iranians lined up to take pictures with our flag.

 

In the evening we were invited to dinner by our guide. And ended the evening with a brief visit to the mosque.

Thank you Mahior and Negin for a wonderful evening! Tomorrow begins the most important part of the program, we move to the town of Polur near Demavend and begin preparations for the ascent.
