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

Today is the most colorful day of our entire tour! Endless slopes of scarlet poppies! At the end of June, they bloom even brighter and open above the Mosque to a height of 3,300 m. We didn't look at the time, everyone was keen on the photo shoot, which is why we came to Borgoh-e Sev almost an hour later. We didn't regret a bit, it happens once in a lifetime, to visit Iran and capture the period of flowering poppies. In the camp, as always, the best "rooms" were occupied for us, a delicious soup for a late lunch and the national dish lyubie-polo and bahlava for dinner completed this colorful day. Tomorrow, a short acclimatization to 4600 m and preparation for the ascent.  Guides Alexander Spirin and Valery Myasoedov.

Andrey Berezin, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from the Elbrus region:

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.

A guide of the 7 Summits Club Sergey Avtomonov, reports from Turkey:

Today Ararat has shown us its strength! During the day we saw all the manifestations of bad weather: strong wind, snow, hail, rain - but still we climbed to the top in very poor visibility! Then there was a long descent in an ongoing blizzard and without visibility! With difficulty we went down to the upper camp and made a strong-willed decision to go down to the hotel today! Then a few more hours of descent to the first camp, there we took a little breath and another 8 kilometers down, in places in the rain, watching a thunderstorm! But now we have reached Van and are resting in a hotel, not in tents!
