President of the 7 Summits Club, head of the Everest expedition Alexander Abramov reports from Nepal:
Today, on May 2, the team is quietly preparing for a new exit. Tomorrow at 3 am we will start for camp-1 6100m. The plan is to climb to Camp 3 at 7100m in 3 days and then descend to Base Camp on May 6th. On May 7th, the team will fly to Namche Bazaar for a vacation. And the ascent is scheduled for May 12-13. Today, the Cats team, led by Artem Rostovtsev, came to visit. Cats turned out to be models, so we temporarily postponed our men's classes. A game of chess and cards. It's a pity, but at 2 a.m. we leave the Base Camp. The weather is good.
Today our friends, Everest climbers Igor Demyanenko and Jamila Murtayzina also came. It was a good meeting. Our Base Camp is turning into a Noah's Ark. Not a day without new guests. Another good news. Sergey Bogomolov was discharged from the Hospital. And he's flying to Lukla tomorrow.
