In the morning the weather was very bad. Actually we delay for 3 hours, instead of the 3 am we went out at 6, and it worked, because the weather became better. You should hear, here is people laugh and rejoice.

In the beginning, when we came out from the camp, was a real snowstorm, and every moment there was such impression, that we get down and turn around. In general, we are on top, wind practically are not present, the sun is shining, everyone is happy, call family and friends. Lists of members, who ascent will be a little later. We begin to descent, in fact descent he is rather complicated and dangerous, so it is too early yet to congratulate us. Contact when go down. Good-bye".

What we were pleased to report, in the composition of climbers was Lidia Vasilievna, 65 years old,

and she is for the first time in life came to the mountains. She is the mother of one of our participant Vitaly and today we all were very happy for her. It was hard, not very good weather, but nevertheless the whole team went to the top.

Today we received a new message about the adventures of our group of 7 Summits Club in Kamchatka. That's what Luda tell us:

Hi everybody!

Today, July 17, our team has completed rafting the river called “Fast”. This trip lasted for three days. We covered about a hundred kilometers and more than ten thresholds. Caught more than two dozen fish. Do not hurt no one bear. Today we moved to the base Paratunka for drying and rest. Tomorrow we leave to Mutnovsky base camp.
We have to climb two more Volcano:  “Gorely” and “Mutnovsky”. There is a small difficulty- all the way to Mutnovsky covered with snow, and cars cannot reach the beginning of the route. That means about 28 extra km in the snow.
But we have nothing to fear!

The whole team (8 members, 8 Sherpas and 3 guides) are now in a camp at an altitude of 7800 meters. On May 20, in the morning, they will go to the assault camp at 8,300 m. And the same evening, that is, tomorrow, the whole team should go into the assault of Everest. All are doing well. A. Abramov.

 

Successful Kangchenjunga summit push !

Anna Gatta reports: I just got a phone call from Philippe at camp 4, 7700m. Philippe Gatta, Ludovic Chaleat, Cédric Haelen and 3 Sherpas successfully made a camp 4-summit-camp 4 round trip this night/morning in 11 hours (timing to be ... read more

Anna Gatta reports: I just got a phone call from Philippe at camp 4, 7700m. Philippe Gatta, Ludovic Chaleat, Cédric Haelen and 3 Sherpas successfully made a camp 4-summit-camp 4 round trip this night/morning in 11 hours (timing to be confirmed, line was bad). Kangchenjunga, 8586m, is bagged!

Alexia and Ben turned around at 8200m and is now walking down towards camp 3 or even camp 2. The are both fine but I think they felt too tired to go on. Gorgan didn’t feel good enough to start the summit push and went down and might even be in base camp already. Conclusion – everyone are ok, that is what counts.

Christian Stangl and a Russian guy also made the summit.

Philippe will stay in camp 4 today to recover from the tough night and tomorrow everyone will be back in base camp.

 All 19 climbers of the 7 Summits Club expedition on Everest are climbing from the North Col (7000 m) to a camp at an altitude of 7500 meters. Summit bid is scheduled for the night of 20 to 21 May for whole group. At this time, due to weather conditions, most expeditions have shifted final attemts, both in North and South. However, on the north side, the route to the summit has not yet climbed and fixed with ropes. This is alarming. Tibetan climbers from the local mountaineering association should have been updated all ropes along the route.
