Svetlana Kotlyar, Coordinator of the Mountainering School of the 7 Summits Club in Khibiny:

Greetings to all from the Khibiny Prusiki team! Our mountaineering school is in full swing! We continue to learn the basics of mountaineering!

Today was the most eventful day! In the morning we went to rock classes in the "City gap". It is very convenient that here in Kirovsk, all the locations we need are literally within walking distance.  Our instructors Alexey Lonchinsky and Ratmir Mukhametzyanov told the members about various types of embedded elements: stoppers, eccentrics, friends, hooks, anchors.

We learned to put points on the terrain and assemble stations on our own. They also continued to work out the descent and ascent along the fixed rope. We finished the lesson by teaching self-arrest on the slope with the help of an ice axe.

After dinner, we listened to a very relevant lecture about avalanche danger in the mountains, because the Khibiny is the most avalanche-prone area in our country.

Now we are resting and preparing for tomorrow's climb on route 2A!

Super-guides: Alexey Lonchinsky, Ratmir Mukhametzyanov.

Coordinators of the school: Svetlana Kotlyar, Daria Sivova.

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

News from the Chronic Climbers group. Today we moved from Camp Barranco to Camp Karanga.  To do this, we needed to climb the Baranko Wall. Climbing this wall invariably causes a lot of emotions. At first, looking at the wall, everyone asks the question "how to climb it?", and then they climb, watching with surprise a string of porters who overcome the wall with luggage on their heads.

After overcoming the wall, we had a tea party, before which we sang a little and even danced, despite the height of 4,200 meters.  And then there was a beautiful walking to the Karanga camp among beautiful trees and intricate volcanic forms. Tomorrow we have to move to the Kosovo assault camp.
