Greetings to all from Kirovsk from the participants of the mountaineering school in Khibiny!  Today, the “Khibinian Prusiki” team made its first ascent on Takhtarvumchorr by route 1B grade through the Geographers Pass.  The route was completed simultaneously in ropes. The weather was pleasing from the very morning: frost and sun!  The members got a lot of emotions and practiced simultaneous movement in ropes and teamwork.

Tomorrow is a rest day according to the plan. In the first half of the day we will conduct theoretical classes. And also — today is an excellent forecast for the Northern lights! We're leaving in an hour to catch it!

Super-guides: Alexey Lonchinsky, Ratmir Mukhametzyanov.

Super-guide of the 7 Summits Club Olga Rumyantseva reports from Tanzania:

Greetings to all from Tanzania from the group “Chronic climbers”!  Today our team finally came up with a name, and also got to know everyone who works with our group: porters, cooks, guides.

But before the introduction ceremony took place, we went through a long but very beautiful climb from the first Machame camp to the Shira Cave camp. From the area where trees grow, we went up to where there is nothing but bushes with picturesque moss. And then the bushes ended.

The ceremony of acquaintance was held with incendiary dances and songs. Tomorrow we have a big crossing over the Lava Tower.
