Today on June 11th at 10 am, in terrible weather visibility 20-30 m, snow and strong wind, Alexander Abramov and Lyudmila Korobeshko climbed to the top of the highest volcano in Asia - Damavand 5671m.

 Lyudmila Korobeshko:

Damavand surprise us. Personally, I was counting on a simple trekking along a rocky path (as everyone who was there in the summer told) in single-layer shoes and light jackets. The result: we put crampons in a shelter on 4200, walked all the way through the deep snow, in some places falling almost to the waist, our hands were freezing even in warm gloves, we almost had frozen noses. The visibility was 5-10 meters. It's good that we had a local guide - Hamid. Without him, we would have lost. And even with him a couple of times we almost decided to turn. The only thing that stopped us was that the forecast for the next day which  was even worse. But going down by fresh snow was convenient and fast:))) Conclusion – there is no warm mountains. It is better always take a stock of warm clothes! And crampons!

Denali 2018. The team is in full combat readiness (low start) before leaving for the glacier Kahiltna. We fly fed, equipped - in white snow fields. For the first couple of days, the weather is not very good, but we will be on top. So there is no reason to worry.

 

Mikhail Kornev, a member of the group: the Rangers were tortured with instructions. Nothing can be done, their mountain - their rules.

We leave in three hours. Our team is excellent, the mood is great.

Everyone froze, but prevailed and climbed! It was too cold for photos, sorry...
