Now the entire team of 7 Summits Club successfully descended from the mountains and now is preparing packs.
Tomorrow, on the 25th we leave by cars in Shigatse and the day after (May 26) we plan on the flight from Lhasa to Kathmandu.
And now for an hour to relax and to take stock:
27 people on the top of Mount Everest!
15 members and guides + 12 Sherpas.
Several Russian and World Records! About its - below ...
Decisions on the graphics were difficult this year. Weather did not allow to take unequivocal decisions. Always it was snowing and it seemed that the monsoon has arrived. But the state of the route for the ascent was terrific. All the rocky areas and sloping rock slabs were covered with a thick layer of snow and firn. This allowed the speed of movement along the entire route to be the fastest.
And, nevertheless, we note that the long experience of leadership helped us to choose the best two days for climbing. That led to such a great success!

We have once again proved that the 7 Summits Club team was not only the biggest and well secured on the North side of Everest, but also the most experienced and most successful. 15 of the 16 members of the expedition reached the summit. One participant climbed up only to 8500 m, for health reasons.
And most importantly, that all are alive and healthy, cheerful and happy, and all remained friends.
