Nastya Kuznetsova, guide of the 7 Summits Club: news from Mexico. Today was the key day of our entire program - day assault on the highest volcano of North America, the peak of Orizaba. Today, January 3, our heroes are Vlad Moroz and Georgi Kuzmin who stood on the top. The support group has reached the height of 5200 m. Everyone is happy. Everyone got what they wanted. Although it was not easy. Initially the ascent was planned on the Northern slope of Orizaba. But, from the unfavourable state of the snow-ice slopes of the North, it was decided to make the ascent from the South. And there are nuances. There is almost no snow, but there are many talus slopes mixed with stone collapse and a protracted steep scree, with hidden ice. But, our male part of the team was able to overcome all obstacles and come out on top.

 Now the whole group is resting after the storm in the shelter Tapan and is preparing to return to Mexico.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SUMMIT! News from Tanzania by Anna and Alexey Shpak. It was the finest ascent

 The ascent was great, we not only climbed to the highest free-standing mountain of the Earth, but also walked around the crater and touched the disappearing glaciers of Kilimanjaro. In total, in new year's eve, during the ascent, we spent more than 4 hours at a height of 5700-5895 meters. That  is undoubtedly due to our wonderful guides Urio and Wiesen.  They were able to acclimatized us to prepare us for this — we have not filled any symptoms of altitude sickness.

  We sang and danced at the top, drank champagne, and got just a wonderful experience and memories. We'll miss that mountain and our team consisting of 15 cute, fun and professional guys whom we called Kaka, that is, brothers.

Lyudmila Korobeshko, guide and Director of the 7 summits Club:

You can congratulate our team with the first five-thousand meters summit. This year it is definitely the first for all:). On 2th January in bad weather, our group of the 7 Summits Club under the name of Brave Guinea Pigs, climbed on Iliniza Norte 5126м. It was an incredible amount of snow, and on the descent even more -  the storm caught us. But in parting, Iliniza gave us an insanely beautiful sunset.

That is all. Now we are going to Baños and we will be there to relax.

Lyudmila Korobeshko, a Guide and Director of the 7 Summits Club:

News from Ecuador. On the last day of the year, our Ecuadorian team got its name - Stunning SuperCuy.

 And this day we celebrated by climbing of Rucu Pichincha 4700. To a height of 4000  was reached by 20 people, including children. On up went 16 pigs and even the eldest of the children Nizhankowski Ilya, 13 years old.

100 meters to the top we were overtaken by a severe thunderstorm, so we had to wear helmets and run down. New Year in Moscow we began to celebrate in the cabins of the cable-car and continued near our bus, gathered around a pile of curious Ecuadorians. The heavy rain poured Quito until midnight and later.

Nevertheless, the most persistent of our team went out at midnight to Ecuador to square Fodzh where arranged fireworks and burning scarecrows.

Today, January 1 we leave Quito and drive towards Cotopaxi to the village of Machachi. And tomorrow there is already in the plans ascent to our first fivethousander - Iliniza Norte 5126.

Happy New Year to all!

Nastya Kuznetsova, guide of the 7 Summits Club: New year's Mexican. Today we celebrated the New year several times along every Russian town at different heights of the mountain La Malinche (4500 m) where we went for the acclimatization before Orizaba. Independently from each other, all agreed on the opinion that this is one of the most beautiful mountains they have ever seen (and they saw  a lot).

Happy New year to all!
