Alexander Abramov and Artem Rostovtsev today made an unforgettable trip to Oslo in preparation for the expedition to Antarctica. Besides the fact that we bought skis and boots for skiing in Antarctica to the South Pole, we also visited several unique museums. This is the Museum of Kon-Tiki and Ra ships, in which Thor Heyerdahl's crew sailed the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. This is Museum of Arctic and Antarctic discoveries, with the ship FRAM which was built by Nansen.  It was the ship that Amundsen sailed to Antarctica to conquer the South Pole. In General, shopping turned out to be very useful from a cognitive point of view.

Boris Yegorov,  a guide of the 7 Summits Club:

In preparation for the unique expedition to mount Fitzroy (Patagonia), which will take place in January next year, we organized a training session on the warm cliffs of Turkey. Turkey is unique place for autumn climbing, the season is here is in full swing, a variety of lasagna, 5 crops of oranges per year, grenades are falling from the trees right in the hands, good food and warm sea!

 

The participants discovered that rock climbing is not only within mountaineering, but it is interesting as an independent activity. We did not have much time, but an intensive schedule. We managed to go multi-pitch to remember the feeling of height, and tighten the level of climbing so that in the end it turned out to climb 6C category of difficulty, and this is not a beginner level! In General, we are ready for Patagonia.

The 7 Summits Club  plans to reward climbers on the "Seven Summits", that is, the highest peaks of all continents, a special sign of honor. What will be the order of awarding, we will inform later. Now we offer you to look at the list of summiters from Russia plus those of whom we consider "our". Citizens of Russia in this list are 38 people. And they all, somehow, climbed in the programmes of the 7 Summits Club. With the exception of the first – Fedor Konyukhov, who also was in our group climbing Everest, but after the completion of the program "Seven Summits".  We are proud to note that, apparently (accurate statistics have not yet been restored), Russia is in second place in the world in terms of the number of climbers to the highest peaks of the continents. And this is the merit, first of all, of our 7 Summits Club!  We are proud!

On November 24, the leaders of the 7 Summits Club 7 Peaks Alexander Abramov and Lyudmila Korobeshko visited the opening of the exhibition of painting Vasily Nesterenko. It was a pleasure to meet legendary veterans of the national mountaineering Vladimir Shataev, Boris Korshunov, Yuri Tinin, our old friends Alexander Yakovenko, Sergey Bogomolov and Vladimir Suviga.

  "Better than the mountains can only be mountains..." this famous phrase called his new exhibition people's artist of Russia Vasily Nesterenko and it immediately gives us an idea about the theme of the exhibition.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  The exhibition presents his works made over the past 10 years after expeditions to Elbrus, Sayan, Altai Mountains and Kamchatka. The exhibition will give visitors an idea of the unique regions of Russia, the love of which the artist sings in his paintings.

Watch Vadim Khairullin's amateur film.  The passage of the climbing route (multi-pitch) Mishorsky caves. Fog, of course, greatly prevented to make high-quality shooting.  But still there is information about the route, it is clear that it is worthy to be considered one of the best in the Crimea.

 

 

Such diversity is nowhere on the Crimean climbing  routes, and the caves themselves are an amazing object.  We will wait for new, better shootings…
