On September 4, a group of six people climbed to the top of Mount Breithorn (4164 meters), located on the border of Switzerland and Italy.  A young girl disabled Zlata Varlamova, a wheelchair user  from the age of three was among the climbers. It is her first and (so far) only summit. A small expedition to the Alps is organized by the club "Extreme Velsk", which is headed by our friend, climber on the "Seven summits" Andrei Podolyan. He personally and two of his companions together with Alpine guides prepared a route for Zlata's ascent. She climbed on jumar and a sledge on the fixed ropes.

 

The club "Extreme Velsk"  and Zlata express their gratitude to the 7 Summits Club and personally guide Maxim Foygel  for help and organization of this event!

Manaslu. Days 7-8. September 9-10. The first acclimatization rotation outing at 5700 (to camp 1).

The morning of 9 September began with the Puja - blessing of the camp. At 6 a.m. Lama came from a neighboring expedition and began to read prayers. Our Sherpas built a stupa for the Puja. By 8 a.m. all members of the expedition gathered near the stupa. They brought equipment for the consecration and donations.

We lit a fire, the smoke went towards the mountain, which is considered a good sign. Drank the sacred drink and at the end of the ceremony cast tsamps toward the stupa.

 

About 10 am we left the Base camp. To 12 hours we reached the Crampons Point. Then we put on our crampons and went out on the glacier. There are many crevasses, but all are well marked. Bridges are reliable. The last 200 meters we were given a little hard: three consecutive steps. By the way, this year we put the first camp 150 meters higher than usual. But this place is more beautiful  and secure. And part of the route to the second camp is clearly visible - a somewhat frightening icefall with some overhanging.

 

 We went from bas camp to first in 6 hours. The vertical drop is about 1000 m. in the evening we measured oxygen (from 65 to 85) - on average, normal. We ate soup with chicken and rice. The first camp we have quite comfortable - there is a dining tent, sleep two in sleeping tents, and even with mattresses. And we allocated to the doctor a separate tent - for his kilograms of medicines. He had already "saved" two members - bandaged sprained wrist and plastered cracked nail.

 

We didn't sleep so badly. Although almost all had pain in the head, was saved by diacarb and analgesic (with Pentalgin). There were avalanches in the night, but we were almost used to this sound.

 

In the morning after breakfast we worked with avalanche sensors. Members quickly found everything that Dr. Larin had hidden. And then we all ran down the valley together. We reached the base camp in less than two hours - we really wanted to go to the bath.

Now we wash, rest, gain strength before the second more difficult rotation.

Greetings from the slopes of Mount Kazbek, from a group with an original name "Gastronomic ecstasy"! What other name could come to mind after the torture of delicious Georgian cuisine. Everyone noticed the signs of lack of appetite after the 5th and one 4th meals.

 From food we are distracted the need somewhere to go or walk. As a rule, from table to table, for a new gastronomic ecstasy. Or rent for equipment, or up to the shelter,  then we have a plan to go higher.

The mountain is difficult to discuss, they did not show due to the thick fogginess and cloudiness. Unlike food.

Day plan trips was done, we reached the refuge at 3000+. Left to eat again.

And legalize the new name of the group - "Rosary" – see our girls below…

New climbers learned a lot about themselves, their comrades, their capabilities, and believed that what seems impossible is still possible!  We were very happy to organize the ascent for this team! It was the second peak, after Mount Elbrus, hopefully not the last!

 Meanwhile, September 1st is the beginning of the spring season in Tanzania!  Already going to bloom and bloom in full force all that is usually pleasing to the eye in Tanzania at this time.

 The dry season is still in full swing, but the mountain is getting warmer.

 And, of course, winter is coming! And where to meet the winter, if not in Tanzania!  Hot and dry! The perfect time for climbing!

 This season on Kilimanjaro with You our favorite guide for New year and Christmas holidays, Dmitry Ermakov ("snow leopard") on 23rd Feb and Februar - Artem Rostovtsev (most attentive tour guide and part - time- favorite team at Salomon skyrunning).

Up-to-date information from the main news agencies: the Nepalese authorities are considering options for tightening requirements for climbers on Everest. Including the planned threefold increase in the cost of permits. But until that happens we offer the best price in the area.   44900 dollars, that is, about two times lower than usual! This expedition to Everest from the South will take place in the spring of 2020. The expedition will be led by Vladimir Kotlyar, who has twice climbed to the summit and has extensive experience as a guide in expeditions.

 

 

The route is a legend, it is very different from the ascent from the North. Starting from the approaches by the Khumbu valley, then following through the legendary icefall (for several years without accidents, you only need to carefully choosing  a route), through the South Col, South Summit and Hillary Step. By the way, at the top there is a chance to meet the climbers of the 7 Summits Club, which will climb from the North.

And as an added plus, we offer a bonus (free) climb to thesummit of Lhotse, the fourth highest peak in the world. Additional payment for the permit will not be necessary.  Recently, such double ascents in one exit above the Khumbu icefall have become not uncommon. So go ahead!
