News of the Elbrus region from the group "Helen and the bears". The new group has started a program of acclimatization and preparation for climbing Elbrus. Today, as part of the program, we climbed to the first cable car station on the slopes of Cheget. The weather pleased us today, it was quite warm, the mountain grass is blooming. In the Ai cafe, we rested after climbing, drank mountain tea with hychins, then returned to the hotel, where we rested and had lunch. In the afternoon we visited the rental, where we took the necessary equipment for climbing. Tomorrow we will climb to the refuge National Park, where we will continue to acclimatize to the ascent.

Lyudmila Korobeshko, Director of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Pakistan:
Exploration expedition on Broad Peak, Pakistan. Day 3. The third of July. Hurray! The documents are finally ready. In the morning we left Shigar in the direction of Ascole. On the way, we slowed down in almost every village - our driver greeted his friends and proudly showed that he was carrying foreign tourists. Two hours later we stopped to buy chickens. For the first time we saw how live chickens are put on the scales and discuss weight and prices for a long time, and chickens calmly flaunt on the scales. Around lunch, we had a snack with traditional food of the Baltu peoples - rice, lentils, vegetables and meat - essentially the same Nepalese dalbat. In general, the Baltu, Sherpa and Tibetan peoples are very close, languages and traditions are similar.
About two o'clock we stopped, before reaching Ascole a couple of kilometers - the road was washed out here. We had to move things to other Jeeps. We walked a little bit to Ascole - the views are gorgeous! The village is very picturesque, with sharp snow peaks all around.
This is the last major settlement on our way. There will probably be no further communication until the very BC - day 4-5. See you soon! Don't lose us!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Diary of the expedition of the 7 Summits Club on Broad Peak. Day 1. Alexander Abramov and Lyudmila Korobeshko arrived in Pakistan

Lyudmila Korobeshko, Director of the 7 Summits Club:

Exploration at Broad Peak, Pakistan.  Day 1. The first of July. At 4 a.m. we landed in Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan, where we were warmly welcomed by one of the brothers Saed - Anwar. A few cups of Pakistani tea (mixed tea with milk and cardamom), a few photos for memory, and we are already flying further to Skardu (2450), a town in Baltistan, from where expeditions to the Karakoram mountains begin.

It's also hot here - about +25-30 (well, at least not +45, as in Islamabad). The road from the airport is blocked by strikers, we are going to detour. Half an hour later we arrive at the Summit Hotel in Skardu, give the documents to the military to obtain permits and fall asleep.

We wake up around 15.00, have a snack with mixed fried rice, which we have loved since Tibet, and go to buy gas and other small things. However, Friday evening is a Muslim day off - many shops close early. Therefore, we just decide to relax and go to the barber shop to clean up. Sasha shaves, I take pictures, five more locals just sit next to each other and talk to the hairdresser and us. The owner of our hotel brought us to the barbershop. On the way, he told me that three years ago in the winter, a Russian expedition to K2 stopped with him (apparently, it was with Artem Brown).

A short walk before going to bed - through the noisy streets of Skardu, very close to the noise of the Indus water ... Tomorrow, if the documents from the military are ready, we will go to Ascole. Or we'll wait here for another day.

P.S. We met Nims on the way to Pakistan. First on the poster, and then in person.  We agreed to meet again in a week under K2 and Broad Peak.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Summit! Two beautiful members of the group "M&M's" made the ascent on Elbrus with the guide Andrey Berezin

Andrey Berezin, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from the Elbrus region:

News of the Elbrus region from the group "M&M's". Today we climbed the Western peak of Elbrus.  As it has already become a tradition for this season's weather, the forecast did not come true.   By the time we reached the top, clouds covered Elbrus.  On the ascent, I had to take the initiative to improve the trail from the saddle to the top.  On the way back, we were forced to focus on the hangers that marked the trail, as we descended in the "milk". But all these weather difficulties only consolidated our success and confidence in the abilities of our beautiful participants: Marina Sviridova and Marina Muravyeva. We wish them to continue their chosen course. The group's guide is Andrey Berezin.
