Hello! It is the guide of 7 Summits Club Denis Provalov. Today, our group made a successful ascent to the summit of Mount Elbrus West Peak and 11 people descended on the northern side of this beautiful mountain. Heavy enough route, despite the fact that the weather was just awesome: sunny, no wind. In the morning, probably at four or five it was still cool, and then it was warm, wonderful. The result - 11 people descended on the north side, and three of our team - down to the start point, to the south. We are all very happy. We are now located in a shelter in the North. All in a good mood. Tomorrow we continue the descent toward civilization, toward the town of Kislovodsk. We hope tomorrow to get out as early as 8 am and be at 12 hours on the next camp on the north side..

On the Russia Day holiday (from 12 to 15 June), the group of 7 Summits Club of 8 people attempted to climb Mount Ararat by our program BLITZ. Initially it was heavy task but lots of snow made it more difficult. Too early yet, summer came only recently. Climbers had to start from a height of 3800 m, not from 4100 m as usual. However, six of the eight members of group achieved the summit of Ararat. Well done! Congratulations!

 

Sergei Dudko and Dmitry Krasnov completed the program 7 summits. Congratulations!

Sergei Dudko and Dmitry Krasnov, few days ago, have climbed the highest point in North America - Mount McKinley (Denali). Thus, they have successfully completed the 7 Summits project!

We heartily congratulate the guys on this achievement!

It should be noted that the harsh Alaskan mountains had given the guys a hard time. Almost a week they were forced to wait in Talkeetna for Flight glacier because of the prolonged bad weather. But when they still managed to be on the Kahiltna Glacier, guys rushed up and in record time. For 7 days the literally ran up to the top.

We are waiting for heroes on 7 Summit Club evening of June 26, where we presented them with honorary diplomas. We invite all to listen to their story of the project completion of the 7 Summits.

Left to right: Dmitry Krasnov, Sergei Dudko, Maxut Zhumaev (went solo McKinley) and Vladimir Doronin.

There is too much snow, but we managed. And as soon as we went down again all sucked. I'm Writing now from Leaprus refuge - outside we can not see anything, strong winds and snowing again. Overall, we were very fortunate that slipped. Can congratulate us :)

NEW REFUGE

LEAPfactory places LEAPrus alpine station on russia’s highest mountain

http://www.designboom.com/architecture/leapfactory-leaprus-alpine-station-russia-06-06-2014/

 

The ‘s1′ eco-pod, developed by torino-based LEAPfactory, is a modular refuge structure designed specifically for extreme and remote environments. the building system is prefabricated and transported to any given location, and has been realized on many sites throughout Europe. The LEAPrus documentary takes viewers through the construction and assembly process of three shelters to create an alpine station (elevation 4,000 m) on the southern slope of mount Elbrus, located in the Caucasus range in Russia.

 

A trailer for the documentary: LEAPrus

 

http://vimeo.com/86043011

 

 

The alpine station is located at an elevation of 4,000 m on the southern side of Russia’s highest peak, mount Elbrus

The s1 shelters are able to withstand harsh weather conditions, and as a result allow adventurers to inhabit more extreme locations. Completely detached from any power grid, a photovoltaic film is incorporated into the outer shell, and is able to provide all necessary energy for the building’s equipment. The shape, materials, and construction of the units help to optimize its performance, while interior fittings provide a high level of comfort. By lifting the structures off of the terrain, minimal impact is created on the otherwise undeveloped landscape.

Alex report: Hello! Yesterday, May 25, our second team (all members and guides) also reached the summit of Everest. The weather was not very good. There were many people, too many. So we could not go down immediately to the camp ABC, as we usually do. The team spent the night at the camp an altitude of 7700 meters. Now we slowly continue to descend to ABC. We're good ... and perfectly. I will try to dictate names of summiters. First two Ladies: Iwona Zadarnowska from Poland and Natasha Matusova from Russia. Now on: Alexander Abramov , Sergey Larin , both for the sixth time, Dmitry Ermakov, Alexey Boutin ... Who else ? Igor Stolyarov, Vladimir Voronin of Ukraine, seven Sherpas and Ravil Shamgulov, a Canadian citizen. I hope no one has forgotten.

It was difficult climb, very difficult. But actually we were lucky with the weather. Because when the number of 100 people in one day started, if a hurricane or some snow, then some people would have remained on the mountain. That's right. In our expedition all climbed the top:

14 members 3 guides and 14 Sherpas.



All except those who left us after acclimatization due to illness. I mean Kostya Ugriumov and Patrick Butler from Ireland.

Now we are all on the North Col , but it is still too early to celebrate ....
