At the end of October 2013, an ascent of the western summit of the "two-peaked mountain" was made by experienced mountain climbers: Karina Mezova, who has climbed to the summit of Mount Elbrus 130 times, and Abdul-Khalim Elmezov, President of the Climbing Federation of the Republic of Kabardino-Balkaria. Both climbers are close friends of the 7 Summits Club, both are Everest summiters.

With the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi just round the corner, the Olympic Flame has been lit at the summit of the highest point in Europe, Mount Elbrus, which lies in the Greater Caucasus mountain range.

 

During the relay, the longest in Olympic history, the Olympic torch has been seen at the International Space Station, in outer space, on the bottom of Lake Baikal, at the main Buddhist temple and monastery in the Republic of Buryatia, on top of Avachinsky volcano on the Kamchatka Peninsula, and at the North Pole.

A team of five experienced mountaineers has also reached the summit of Mount Elbrus with the Olympic Flame in a special lantern, the Torch Relay Committee revealed on Saturday.

Although commonly known as a mountain, Mount Elbrus is in fact a layered volcano, which last erupted about 2,000 years ago. It has long been a challenge for climbers from across the world, with the first documented ascent of the eastern summit in 1829. The slightly higher western peak was first conquered in 1874.

The plan to take the Olympic Flame to the western peak of Elbrus, at an altitude of 5,642 meters above sea level, was developed separately from the main Olympic Torch Relay route to have a chance to choose the best possible weather conditions for the climb.

At the end of October 2013, a Russian team of mountain climbers made an ascent of the western summit of Elbrus. One of the mountaineers, Karina Mezova, has climbed to the summit of Elbrus 130 times; the other, the president of the Climbing Federation of the Republic of Kabardino-Balkaria, Abdul-Khalim Elmezov, has climbed Elbrus more than 220 times.

 

 

A total of 14,000 torch bearers have taken part in the 2014 Olympic Torch Relay, with the oldest participant aged 101. Meanwhile, the average pace of the Olympic Torch Relay is 534 kilometers a day, with a variety of means of transportation available to ship it, including the traditional Russian three-horse sled, the troika, dog sled and reindeer sled, a hot air balloon, an amphibious motorboat, a medieval “ladya” Russian sailboat, a motorbike, a water scooter, a wakeboard, a ski bike, a snowmobile, as well as a snow-and-swamp buggy, just to name a few.

The 2014 Olympic Torch Relay has been hosted by 135 cities located in all of Russia’s 83 federal subjects. The longest nonstop leg of the relay spanned 2,055 kilometers, between the cities of Norilsk and Yakutsk in the Russian Far East.

Hello! It is Vladimir Kotlyar, the guides of the expedition to Aconcagua. Today we went from Nido de to Cholera, it was for acclimatization reason.

Tomorrow we plan to have a day of rest. The weather is good, that's good. Mow it is windy. Weather forecasters promise the next three days strong wind. On the scheduled day of the ascent it should be “a window”. Goodbye!

Dear comrades! It is a guide the company Seven Summits Club Provalov Denis. With an information from Argentina, from North Patagonia. A fascinating journey of Vladimir and Polina Lande in the Bariloche area continues. The day before yesterday we had a very interesting climb to the top of Bella Vista. Unfortunately, up to the top we were unable to walk, but we had a good time.

We had a very interesting tour by jeep of our friend Markus around the district of Bariloche. We travelled a lot and have made various radial outputs and treks in a very beautiful place. It is difficult to convey the beauty and charm all of these wonderful places and believe me - it is very very beautiful. The weather spoiled, but we will continue our route.

2013 inscribed very dark page in the history of mountaineering: in Pakistan, at the foot of the mountain Nanga Parbat terrorists shot 10 climbers from different countries. Among them three were from Ukraine, from the city of Kharkiv, one of which, Igor Svergun was a close friend of our Club. We honor his memory.

Hi! This is Alexandra Sak from Kilimanjaro. Today morning at seven, six of the eight our climbers were on the top of Uhuru. Although the mountain was not good with the weather today. First, a strong wind in the morning, then we walked as hedgehogs in a fog, and then went to grad. Now we are already in Horombo, 3700. And here, too, there is hail. So Kilimanjaro is sad. But we are quite cheerful, everything is great. With impatience we wait for tomorrow to come down to the hotel and get in the shower, lukewarm. We are all well, feel well, although a little tired. Bye-bye!
