The guide of the 7 Summits Club Kristina Putintseva reports from Nepal:

Greetings from the band "Iron S"! We woke up in our Luxury—Everest-Bace-Camp, washed ourselves with warm water, drank freshly brewed coffee, had breakfast with a view of Everest and Nuptse.

In the morning, half of our group was sent by helicopter to recuperate in Namche Bazaar. The rest of the group began a leisurely descent to Lobuche for lunch.

We enjoyed the views of boundless gorges and dizzying peaks. We stopped near the memorials, honored the memory of those who stayed in the mountains forever. They speculated that the risk should be justified.  And the lower we descended, the easier it became for us to breathe deeply. We stayed in Dingboche. We wished a group of climbers on Island Peak good luck and good weather, and went to recuperate before tomorrow's trek.

Your super guides, Sergey Avtomonov and Kristina Putintseva.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The team of the Everest Club 8000 has successfully completed the second acclimatization rotation with an ascent to a height of 7100 meters

Svetlana Kotlyar, manager of the 7 Summits Club and a member of the expedition, reports from Nepal:

  Greetings to all from the team "We are just  tourists" of the 8000 Club! Our second rotation has finally ended and today after lunch we returned to the base camp! This time we overcame the Khumbu icefall 2 hours faster — in just 5 hours, which we consider a very good indicator of successful acclimatization. When we arrived at Camp 1 on 6100, the weather was beautiful and sunny. We managed to dry things and arranged a nap at this height in one thermal underwear — how much the tents warmed up.

 The next morning we had to postpone our exit a little because of the increased wind. But we reached 6400 in three hours. Our Sherpas greeted us with hot chicken soup, delicious baked potatoes and pizza.

   Yesterday was the most difficult psychologically and physically day for this rotation — the climb to 7,100. All night long, the wind ruffled our tents, preventing us from having a full rest. In the morning, gusts reached 45 km/h, then the wind subsided a little and we were able to get out of the second camp higher.

We walked under the wall for about two hours, all the time driven by the wind, which did not abate for a second. At the same time, the sun was shining all day, but it was very, very cold.

 It's nice that there were few people who wanted to spend Monday morning as actively — there were no queues on fixed ropes. We spent a lot of effort fighting the wind, but in the end we reached the desired level of 7100. It wasn't easy.

 At night, the tents were shaking again, making it difficult to sleep. In the morning we waited until the gusts subsided a little, and ran down to the Base Camp.

Boris Egorov, the guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Papua New Guinea:

Meanwhile, the group "Stars of boots" successfully climbed the highest point of Papua New Guinea. Wilhelm Peak 4509m. On May 8, almost all the participants stood at the top (one lady decided to save her injured knee).

The weather was perfect. On the descent we swam in the lake. It's so great when you have the opportunity to freshen up right after the mountain! In the evening, the ascent was already celebrated in the lodge.
