The Guide of the 7 Summits Club Alexander Dorojukov reports from the Elbrus region:

Greetings from the Elbrus region! Today, the group of the 7 Summits Club, which was called the "Wolf Quartet", began its acclimatization program. We walked on the "Refuge of 11", rolled in the snow, learned self-arresting with an ice pick. We also now understand why we need carabiners and incomprehensible ropes, which are always in the way. Everything is fine, we are working further.

This morning our team left the base camp and began the long journey back home. They will have to walk the familiar path along the Baltoro glacier to Ascole, the first settlement to which the highway approaches. We remind you that on July 27 and 28, two teams of the 7 Summits Club and the 8000 Club ascended to the top of K2 in the number of 8 participants, 2 high-altitude operators and 10 Sherpas. There are 20 people under the leadership of Lyudmila Korobeshko. The ascent took place in bad weather, with a poor condition of the route. A lot of material has been shot for the future film "The H Altitude Gene 2. K2". We are waiting for the heroes at home!

On July 29, the acclimatization of two parallel groups aiming for the Summits of Elbrus from the north began.  The first group (4 participants) chose an ambitious and difficult route "The Cross of Elbrus": a traverse from north to south with ascent to the Eastern and Western Summits. The working name of the team is "Deflated Cheeks", the main guide of the team is Alexander Avtomonov.

The second group (4 participants) chose the name "Four Comrades". The goal of the team is to climb the Eastern Peak from the north and descend to the north. The main guide of the group is Karina Mezova.

Yesterday, both teams walked to the glade of "Stone Mushrooms". A transfer to the base camp on the moraine (3800 m) is planned for today. Good luck and good weather to both teams!

On July 27 and 28, two teams of the 7 Summits Club and the 8000 Club ascended to the top of K2 in the number of 8 participants, 2 high-altitude operators and 10 Sherpas. There are 20 people under the leadership of Lyudmila Korobeshko. The ascent took place in bad weather, with a poor condition of the route. But we did it. The start was from the Camp-3, as the weather did not allow the route to be fully processed before the start. 

Nevertheless, the whole team of climbers reached the top.

This is a great achievement, since Mount K2 is the most difficult eight-thousandth mountain in the world. And this is the most massive ascent of K2 in the history of Russian mountaineering.

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

Hooray! Ararat let us in and let us go! Today at 7 am the whole team was standing on the top of Ararat!!! Despite the fact that it was not easy for everyone, but we got there quickly enough - in 5 hours! The weather pleased us, at first there was a light wind, and when we reached the top it ended and it gave us more time for a photo on the top. True, there were a lot of people, but this is a small problem. On the descent, the weather got a little worse, but it didn't change our mood. We were very tired during the ascent, so we descended slowly and carefully. As it turned out, not in vain. A member of the German team fell and injured his head while we were there. In the evening we went down to the base camp. We're spending the night here today, and tomorrow we're going to the hotel.

At 18:00, the first team left the third camp to storm the summit. Right in front of them is a team of Sherpas hanging ropes. There is a lot of snow. The Sherpas failed to set up Camp 4 due to bad weather. The season on K2 is very difficult. Weekly snowfalls. Short windows of good weather. Now the weather is average lousy. It's snowing at Camp 3. Although all the surrounding peaks are open. We pray for the friends. Good luck today!

The second team is planning an assault tomorrow evening.

News from Ararat today we went for acclimatization to 4200 to a high-altitude camp.

We sat, rested in the upper camp, went down, got caught in the rain a little, but not much.  We had a delicious dinner and are now resting before going to the assault camp tomorrow.

All jambos from Tanzania! We continue our journey to Kilimanjaro.

In the morning, the camp was shrouded in fog. But with hot dances, which were instead of charging, we dispersed the clouds. So our entire journey from Machame Camp to Shira Cave camp took place in wonderful sunny weather with incredible views in all directions.

By lunchtime we came to the camp, but we did not stop there, but went for a walk further.

Everyone feels good. The mood is great. By the evening, with joint efforts, we were able to choose the name of the group – "In content".

Well, the ascent continued. The first two groups spend the night in Camp-3 (7400), the third – in Camp-2 (6600). The path to Camp 4 has already been trodden and equipped with fixed ropes. Tomorrow, the leading team of Sherpas will continue processing the route in order to reach the top on July 27.

 Lyudmila Korobeshko (Group-3):

They went out to storm, moving to Camp 2 on 6600. There was no good weather for a week. It seems to be getting better now.

Now at lunchtime on July 25, we came to Camp 2 on K2.

 

 

 

Vladimir Kotlyar, high-altitude operator (Group-1):

Today, according to the forecast, there should be bad weather, but to our joy, the forecast has not yet been justified.

At six in the morning, we got out of the tents, put on the crampons and harness, then and climbed up in the hope for the best.

If this weather lasts for four days, then we have every chance. There is a mountain, you have to climb!
