The group "Everest-1" of the expedition of the 7 Summits Club "Everest-Lhotse 2021" descended to the base camp. In the evening, the award ceremony for the Everest climbers took place there. As already reported, five members of our expedition reached the highest peak in the World on May 23. Three of them (Daniel Wolfson, Eduard Kubatov and Georgy Shulepov) received from the hands of Alexander Abramov a memorial sign specially made by the 7 Summits Club. Two of the heroes (Mikhail Mikheev and Anna Permilovskaya) did not take part in the event, as they had already left by helicopter for Kathmandu.
The weather conditions today were quite heavy, it was snowing with a strong wind. The Lhotse group and the Everest-2 group continue to stay at Camp 3 at an altitude of 7,100 meters, hoping for a new weather window.
