The Everest Blitz is not about a speed record! But you will be able to get acquainted with the record holders

 How fast can you climb Mount Everest? This general question is divided into two. How fast can you climb from the base camp to the top?  And – how quickly you can climb to the top from the beginning of the expedition. We are talking about records, and not about them. The program of the 7 Summits Club "Blitz" is not about records. This is expediency and rationality. One of the solutions to the problem: "there is a desire to climb Mount Everest – there is no way to spend two months on an expedition"…

 

 

And the record holders… You will be able to meet them at the base camp. Karl Egloff and Marc Batard plan to set new achievements for 2022, and for Sherpa Kami Rita, records are the main job.

 

 

Proposals of the 7 Summits Club, Everest Expedition 2022. Leader Alex Abramov.

 

This is American Roxanne Gonzalez Vogel.

Her record is unofficial. Perhaps one of the climbers could prove that he was on the expedition for a shorter period. For example, someone flew over from another eight-thousandth and already acclimatized went to the mountain. Or someone even lives in the Khumbu Valley and, after leaving home, only stopped at the base camp for a day. Records of the shortness of stay in the expedition are still a novelty.

 But Roxanne (Roxy) showed the whole world the action of a program similar to our "Blitz". Even much shorter - 14 days from home to home in California.

 (1) The program is available for well-trained people. Roxy has been doing sports all her life, professionally - sports nutrition. She runs ultra-marathons at a competitive level.

 (2) The program is available for those who already know their body's reaction to altitude. Roxy has been climbing for many years. She went, in particular, to Denali and Aconcagua, dozens of routes in the mountains of the USA. And just before Everest, Roxy visited South America, where she climbed three five-thousand meters in Ecuador in five days and on Ojos del Salado in just five days (from home to home).

 (3) But the most important thing is that the program includes long-term training at home. The training consists of regular prolonged sleep in a specially equipped, so-called hypoxic tent.  Nitrogen is pumped into it by a special generator and an atmosphere similar to high-altitude conditions is created.

 

 

Alex Abramov on the air about the Everest expedition and the Blitz program.

 

 

 

Record holders, who can be found at the base camp.

 Kami Rita will be 52 years old, he has climbed to the top of the World 25 times.

 

 

Karl Egloff aims to set speed records on all the "seven summits".  There are four of them in his collection: Aconcagua, Denali, Kilimanjaro and Elbrus. An Ecuadorian Swiss or Swiss Ecuadorian hopes that nothing will prevent him from fighting time on the slopes of Mount Everest this year.

 Marc Batard

Karl Egloff intends to break the record of this Frenchman. In 1988, Mark ran from base camp to the summit of Mount Everest in 22.5 hours.  Several Sherpas walked much faster, but they all used oxygen tanks. And the Batar climbed without the use of additional (artificial) oxygen.  The 69-year-old Frenchman returned to Everest this year to find and equip a way bypassing of the Khumbu icefall.  Already in the mountains he celebrated his 70th birthday. And in 2022, he plans to officially open this path and climb to the top again without oxygen. And thus set an age record for oxygen-free ascent. It belongs so far to the Italian guide Abele Blanc - 55 years old.

The group of the 7 Summits Club is already at the base camp of the Vinson Massif. And the "stash" was found in full!

Artem Rostovtsev, super-guide of the 7 Summits Club from Antarctica: Hello, Seven Summits! This is the White Continent, Artem Rostovtsev. We arrived at the Vinson Massif base camp and have already managed to settle down. Moreover, we dug up equipment and food buried in the snow two years ago. It was all found quickly - literally in five minutes. Thanks to the one who correctly set the coordinates. Some delicacies were left over from the last time. We'll be having dinner soon. In general, the expedition has begun. Wish us good luck! Now the weather is favorable. We'll start going up slowly tomorrow.

Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club from Punta Arenas: Expedition on the Vinson Massif, while from Fin del mundo, aka the edge of the world, is in touch. According to the plan, we have to fly to Antarctica tomorrow. We are waiting for the promised news from the pilots of the aircraft, and they took a break for 1-2 hours to make a decision. What makes us worry a little. We are in full readiness, all the freight forwarding is packed, weighed, delivered.  We would like to fly tomorrow and calmly act according to the plan.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The first Antarctic group of the 7 Summits Club arrived in Punta Arenas

Artem Rostovtsev, super-guide of the 7 Summits Club from Punta Arenas: Antarctic programs of the 7 Summits Club begins. Ahead we have 4 expeditions on the Vinson Massif, an expedition on the Sidley volcano, an expedition The Last Degree to the South Pole on skis.

The advanced small group has already gathered and is located in the windy city of Punta Arenas, a free translation into Russian is "the edge of the earth". Before the arrival of the group, we managed to find and prepare the expedition equipment, purchased and are preparing products for shipment. An exciting moment: will it be possible after a two-year break to immediately find the equipment left and buried on the slopes of Vinson? Therefore, we have to duplicate it. In any case, it will all come in handy during the season. Every day in the morning we do a PCR test, everyone should get to Antarctica "clean". And we begin to hold our fists and occasionally pray for not always stable weather at the beginning of the season. The flight to the White Continent is scheduled for November 26th, let it be so. Greetings from the ends of the earth from the guide Artem Rostovtsev and the team!

Lilia Fedorova about climbing Orizaba, the highest volcano in North America, 5636 m, Mexico

I made it!!! I can't even believe it myself! Mount Orizaba (5636 m) is taken!!! I returned from heaven to earth (from Mexico) and finally had the strength and time to tell. On November 6, starting at 2 a.m., our team of 11 people, led by ... read more

I made it!!!  I can't even believe it myself! Mount Orizaba (5636 m) is taken!!! I returned from heaven to earth (from Mexico) and finally had the strength and time to tell. On November 6, starting at 2 a.m., our team of 11 people, led by the super-guides of the 7 Summits Club, climbed Mount Orizaba from a height of 4700 m.

It's very cool to be above the clouds. Nature is majestic, powerful and magnificent, and you are a grain of sand. It is difficult to convey in censored words how hard it was, mountain sickness (although we were acclimatized from November 1), a very long, steep, hard snow climb (we walked with a rope, in crampons with ice axes). Even experienced climbers said that physically it was easier on Elbrus, because there was a place to sit down to rest.

When I realized that I could no longer lift my legs, I asked them to drill me into the snow with an ice pick and pick me up on the way back, but - it is impossible, they said there is not much left, we need to walk!

 I got to the top only thanks to the guides, namely:

- Sergey Larin, who was always there, managed, supported and helped, while he managed to keep trek of the whole team;

- Julio, the local guide, who took my backpack;

- and also to the spouse who started all this, provided and prepared;

- to the daughter who said, "Mom, you have to walk";

- and to everyone I love!

 I don't know if I'm ready for such madness yet?  But I had to get out of my comfort zone, everyday life and shake myself up. I was somehow offended by the phrase: "There are a lot of smart people, but there are few brave ones"!

Sergey Larin, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Mexico:

Yesterday our group drove to a height of 3100m, to a comfortable base on the slope of La Malinche. On the way, visiting the famous Cholula Pyramid. Today we went to the acclimatization climb. The task of climbing to the top was not set, however, 8 out of 12 people successfully climbed La Malinche (4420 meters). The rest of the participants also did a good job, gained more than 1000 meters. This is a good result for an acclimatization exit. At this time, the second guide of the team, Boris Egorov, went up to the Orizaba base camp to prepare everything for the reception of the group for the next ascent.
