Nastya Kuznetsova, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Turkey:

Greetings from the slopes of Ararat!  Today there was a day of acclimatization. We climbed 4200 m to a high-altitude camp, from where tomorrow, according to the plan, we will go to the assault. The weather was favorable - the sun and a light breeze. Upon returning to the base camp at 3200, which already seems to be a resort, first there was hail (short), then rain with a rainbow and at the end of the storm with lead clouds passed by and disappeared behind Ararat.  After the descent, we prepared for tomorrow, crampons to the shoes, learned how to walk on crampons, passed a master class on tying shoelaces. At dinner, we tasted delicious dishes of Kurdish cuisine: juicy lamb, baked vegetables on coals, ayran, fresh vegetables. Your Boris Egorov and Anastasia Kuznetsova, with warm greetings from Turkey!
