A guide of the 7 Summits Club Valery Myasoedov reports from Iran:

Our whole big group of different ages, of different characters, but united by one goal, successfully reached the top of Mount Demavend yesterday! The ascent was not easy. At first, everyone was rocking, walking at a slow pace, then, as they say, they woke up, gained cruising speed.  The second half of the climb was faster, which is quite rare. Just before the summit, a strong wind blew, not at all according to the forecast. He raised sulfur dust so that many people's eyes watered, but we overcame this discomfort as well. Almost simultaneously, with a difference of 15 minutes, the whole team pulled up to the top. Congratulations and a traditional photo shoot. But our young participants Misha and Sergey, who were 14 years old at the time of the ascent, received special compliments! How they worked on the route! How they grasped comments and tips on the go!  Well, it's just incredible, at such an age, and such efficiency, and dedication!

  The day turned out to be very difficult, almost a day on feet.  We agreed that we would strive to go down as low as possible on the day of the ascent, and if possible, then to Tehran. And we were able to do it! At three o'clock in the morning we checked into the cozy rooms of Espinas Palace, the best hotel in Tehran. A well-deserved finale of a difficult day and the whole program as a whole!  Today there will be an award ceremony and a farewell dinner at the Milod Tower, the best panoramic restaurant in Tehran. Guides Alexander Spirin and Valery Myasoedov.

News of the Elbrus region from the Plan Vulkan group. Well, what can I say, the vulcan plan has been successfully implemented.  After several days of bad weather, our group went out to climb that night. The weather forecast was not confirmed at night, instead of the expected strong wind, we were climbing in complete calm. After dawn, the weather began to deteriorate: clouds were replaced by snowfall and wind along the top. On the descent from the top of Elbrus, we had to shockingly hurry. We have coped with this successfully.  The result: several days of waiting and 100% ascent of the group. The guides of the group are Andrey Berezin and Dmitry Semenov.

News from the slopes of Ararat! Today we moved out of the hotel in the city of Van towards Ararat! With excellent views, we reached the foot, went on foot to the base camp. By the middle of the way we were caught in the rain. We were lucky and for some time we waited out the downpour in a tent with the Kurds.  There we were offered tea and a light snack of cheese and tortillas. As soon as the rain stopped, we went out to the camp.  But we didn't have time to reach the camp without rain. Not far from it, snow and rain began to fall and we finally got to the camp, frozen and soaked! It was difficult, but we managed! Tomorrow we go out for acclimatization to the assault camp and hope for the favor of the weather!

Climbing Damavand. Assault day of the 7 Summits Club team

Details about the ascent of Asia's highest volcano Damavand (included in the 7 Volcanoes project) from the guide of the 7 Summits Club Valery Myasoedov.

 Summit day is the most difficult one. Here, in addition to good acclimatization, motivation and strong-willed qualities play an important role. A late start at 5.30 am justified itself, a strong gusty wind would complicate the ascent in the early hours. We went out without lanterns, we took a leisurely pace, comfortable for all participants. Friday is a day off in Tehran, there were many local climbers on the mountain. When they see foreigners, they greet them, it was nice. We went smoothly and steadily, which is important.  The second half of the climb was completed at approximately the same pace as the first. And in less than 7 hours, almost simultaneously, all the participants reached the top! Strong-willed qualities also proved to be on top!

 We went down the climbing path, crampons and ice axes were not needed. But this does not always happen, it was the decision of the Iranian guides. On the descent, everyone was tired, but the desire to run down as soon as possible and go down to Polur, to a comfortable 2.200 m, was even stronger. As a result, there was further descent to the mosque, moving to Polur, and we are in relatively comfortable conditions. And after taking a shower, everyone noticeably moved away and cheered up, still a set of 1400 m and a descent of 2600 m on their feet is a decent load for the day!
