The guide of the 7 Summits Club Ratmir Mukhametzyanov reports from Kazakhstan:

 We have run out of training camps in Tuyuk-Su, the members of the NP-2 group have completed their program!  We made 4 ascents from 1B to 3A of the difficulty category. The participants of the gathering studied and practiced, walked and climbed, jumared and dulfered. There were a lot of lectures, practical classes, evening gatherings, after climbing, they did an analysis of mistakes.

The cherry on the cake was climbing the route 3A of the difficulty category with an instructor as a leader, so that students could observe the work of a professional on the wall from the side. Although before that they climbed, collected stations, oriented themselves and interacted with each other independently.  We have learned a lot, but there is still a long way to improve.

I was very happy to work with such motivated students!

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

 Greetings to all from Tanzania from the Zvyaginstein Adventures group! This morning we made a climb up the Baranko wall - a march with light climbing elements. After climbing the wall, we continued our way to the Karanga camp (4035m). Unfortunately, we were covered by a cloud, so our way passed without any views.

In the camp, the cloud never left. Therefore, we spent the rest of the day mentally preparing for tomorrow's climbing to the assault camp and for the summit, hiding from the drizzling rain.

 Greetings from Tanzania, from the Zvyaginstein Adventures team! The second day of our ascent to Kilimanjaro. As usual, in the morning we parted with our bunnies, who warmed us all night, had breakfast, held a medical check-up and went for a walk. We climbed through the beautiful places to the Shira camp at an altitude of 3900 meters.

In the camp we rested a little and went for a walk a little more, to look at the cave and other beautiful views.  After the walk, we had a traditional ceremony of getting to know the team.  In total, 42 people work with our group, thanks to which climbing Kilimanjaro becomes incredibly comfortable.

 Greetings from Tanzania from the slopes of Kilimanjaro!  Today, a new group of the 7 Summits Club called "Zvyaginstein's Adventures" has entered the route. In the morning we left the hotel, drove to the gates of the National park, checked our belongings and started climbing the mountain to the Machame camp.

The road on the first day goes through the jungle, where there is a lot of greenery and mossy trees. But closer to the camp, the trees become lower, and the jungle ends. In five hours we reached the camp. That was the end of our first day.

Hello, dear mountain lovers! Greetings from Kazakhstan! The first group arrived in the camp!

Ratmir and Alexey are very glad to see their students of the Khibiny collection again!!!  The flight to Kazakhstan from Moscow took 4 hours and 30 minutes of pure time. The main part of the group took off at 20:50 and at 6 o'clock, having passed customs, left the airport for Almaty. The time difference is 3 hours, so there is a jetlag. One hour of travel and we settle in the camp.

We rested before lunch, then had a snack in an excellent dining room and went for a walk to the weather station Mynzhilki 3100m.  The weather was cloudy, there was rain in places. But the main task, the beginning of adaptation to the highlands, has begun.

After dinner, according to the covenant and the instructions of the sister-mistress Didasha, the members  took readings of pulse, pressure and oxygenation. Everything is fine, we are working according to plan.

The guides: Alexey Lonchinsky and Ratmir Mukhametzyanov.

17.09. Salam from Iran!  Today, the Iskorka group of the 7 Summits Club started in the direction of the Damavand assault camp (4250m). At first there was a drop to 3020 m on local jeeps. Once again, a local legend, Uncle Hassan, led this SUV run. In the camp with the mosque (3020m), we loaded the luggage onto mules and trekking began.  “Pole pole” tactics once again did not disappoint, they walked without choking and without losing their breath.

The climbing season on the mountains is ending, there are only a few tents left from the bivouac camp, the alpine hut is half empty. Our chef Nargiz surprises again with his high-altitude delights!  Now we are resting and preparing for tomorrow's acclimatization day.

Your guides are Evgeny Fedyunin and Alexander Dorojukov.

News from the group "Quintessence". Today, September 17th is a wonderful day, a day of rest combined with puja.

And, characteristically, it rained before and after the prayer, and the sun shone during the prayer. All the participants of the expeditions took part in this ceremony. Everything went great. A string with a knot and a white scarf were tied around everyone's neck.

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

 Greetings from Tanzania from the "Russian crocodiles"!  That's the end of our trip to Kilimanjaro.  This morning we woke up at the Millennium Camp at 3800. After climbing and a sleepless night, sleep was especially sweet. But we didn't have to sleep long.

In the morning, we were waiting for a farewell ceremony with the team. Many songs were sung and many kind words were said.  And then we walked through the jungle for almost 15 kilometers to the exit from the national park.  Today is Stanislav's birthday. So our trip ended with a birthday cake.

In the evening, an award ceremony will be held for all participants of the ascent. And tomorrow everyone will leave - some will go home, and some will continue their journey through Tanzania and go on safari.
