Guide and director of the 7 Summits Club Lyudmila Korobeshko reports from Pakistan:

June 17.  Hello everyone from Pakistan! The advanced troika of the expedition on K2, consisting of the leaders Alex Abramov and Lyudmila Korobeshko, as well as the expedition doctor Andrey Selivanov, flew from Moscow on June 16.

Early in the morning on June 17, we arrived in hot Islamabad. A few hours later, Alexander Abramov went straight to Skardu. From there, he will soon start moving to K2 together with our Sherpa team in order to prepare everything in advance for the arrival of the main team.

Andrey and I stayed in the capital to wait for the arrival of the whole group. We are making purchases, looking for hot spots to add spice to the future film about K2 and Pakistan!

For the first time in history, a chess tournament for climbers will be held in the spring of 2024 on Mount Everest. According to the organizers, the main part of the tournament will begin at the foot of the mountain (base camp), and its final will be at an altitude of about 8000 meters (South Col camp), without the use of additional oxygen. The prize fund will amount to 14 million rubles (app. 170000 USD), the winner of the competition, in addition to the cash prize, will have the opportunity to celebrate his victory on the summit of Mount Everest.

"This is the first tournament for climbers, which will demonstrate physical endurance and demonstrate the intellectual capabilities of the brain in extreme conditions.  The fourth and most dangerous Everest camp is located at an altitude of 8000 meters, and here the finalists will hold a match without access to additional oxygen. To maintain clarity of thought in intellectual struggle in such conditions, perhaps, will be the main challenge for the finalists of the Everchess tournament," commented the President of the 7 Summits Club, 12 times Everest summiter Alexander Abramov on the specifics of the event.  The initiator of the tournament was the summiter of Everest2023, the head of the company "Security Code" Andrey Golov.
