Alex Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club, guide of the group from Mexico:

Today, the team of the 7 Summits Club ("friends of Fyodor Konyukhov") reached a height of 5100m in a hurricane wind. The wind had a speed of 75 km per hour. All night the wind tore the tents at 4600. And in the base camp, all the tents just flew through the air, broke half of them. Dust clogged everywhere. Tomorrow, the team plans a second assault attempt. Wish us luck!
