Salom az Tehran!

On June 15, at 11.30, “Teheran-19” team stood at the top of Demavand. We got it  in exactly 7 hours, as planned. Weather us favored,  this was the best morning over the past 3-4 days. In the upper third, we froze a little from the strong wind, but got the stored down jackets, and the problem was solved. Cloud whirl near the top turned out to be emissions of sulfur dioxide, it makes an impression! ... Well, that West wind will carry the greater part of the accumulations to the side…

 And the top!...

 

 

 

 

We chose the option to go down by  snowy slopes, using stashed crampons. It's faster and safer!

 

 

 

On the same day we ran to the bottom, to the mosque, and from there - to Polur at 2200 m. It was hard, but we really wanted to be down.

 

 

We spent a night in Polur, and in the morning we received traditional congratulations and certificates from the Federation of mountaineering of Iran.

 

 

And famous photos of red poppies!

Guide Valery Myasoedov from Iran.

Today, on June 11, “Tehran-19” group climbed Tochal peak with a height of 4000 m within the framework of the acclimatization program for Demavend.

 

The day before we went up to the shelter along a picturesque path along the Darband river. The rise was simple, three hours do not even have time to enjoy the views.

And the most important view was waiting upstairs, on the terrace of the shelter, from where, from a height of 2800 m, you can see the whole huge 13 million Tehran, playing with all the lights in the dark.

 

Our guide Mahior never ceases to surprise us with his care. Everything here is worked out to the last detail, not a minute of delay, cook delicious, constantly join the exquisite Iranian cuisine.

 

In the morning we went to the top of Tochal, on the road talking with many Iranian tourists, for whom climbing Tochal is  an usual walk.  We climbed at a good pace for 4.5 hours, which shows the serious attitude of the group for climbing Demavend.

 

Our Russian flag was popular. Friendly Iranians lined up to take pictures with our flag.

 

In the evening we were invited to dinner by our guide. And ended the evening with a brief visit to the mosque.

Thank you Mahior and Negin for a wonderful evening! Tomorrow begins the most important part of the program, we move to the town of Polur near Demavend and begin preparations for the ascent.

Dmitry Tertychny climbed Mount Everest on May 17, 2018, when he was 17 years 1 month and 6 days.  He became one of the youngest climbers in the history of the highest mountain of the planet. At the same time Dmitry simultaneously completed the program "Seven summits", becoming the second youngest age after the American Jordan Romero.

 

 

 Alexander Tertychny (father of Dmitry): after returning home, we discussed with Alexander Abramov the further path of the climbers who closed the project "7 summits" and reached the top of the world. With his words, for a large number of amateurs  this is an end  of their climbing carriers. But we decided to go the other way, we started our new project – our goal for today is the highest volcano in North America and the highest mountain in Mexico, Orisaba…

 

 

 So ahead of dad and  son  is a few ascents to the highest volcanoes of the continents, and new records.

 Alexander Tertychny (Dmitry's father): "from early childhood we instilled in our son a love for sports. Dima has been playing football since he was five. As part of the football club "Dynamo" he became a two-time champion of Moscow. He has the first category in chess.  We first went to the mountains when he was 12 years old. I'm proud of my son's courage. Not every adult can psychologically and physically overcome all the difficulties we faced while climbing. He knows how to set goals and achieve them»

Hi, Seven Summits! It is Artem Rostovtsev, Mexico, the State of Puebla. This morning, till noon, we were at the top of the peak of Orizaba. We started at 2a.m., planned for 8 hours to reach the summit. But we have prevented by sudden cracks. So I inform all that Orizaba became cracked. The glacier is in the cracks. But we do not stop, only slowed down for one hour. While looking for where to go, where to jump. And at 11-30  we were already on the top. Now we are down and we are resting in the city of Puebla. So it is possible to congratulate all us with the successful ascent. The whole group was at the same time on the summit. The weather pleased, ice conditions - not.

 

Future plans - cultural and historical leisure.

Once we settled in the loggia, it started to rain. Rain went to the darkness and midnight. All around it was wrapped up in mist, so that come true what was promised by all our predecessors. They said that we will go in the sputum, in swamps, trembling dank. In the morning, it was announced earlier (5 a.m.) wakey. There was no rain. Looking ahead, I will say in that day it did not start, it started only with the following darkness.

By the way, the loggia, where we settled (name Magic Lodge) was quite a good quality. Stilt house for two people, electricity, toilets in each, hot water, clean linen, warm blankets (important! - 12 degrees in the night), great food from a local chef, a lot of fruit.

In the morning we got into jeeps and drove an hour to the village of Malka at an altitude somewhere in 2550 m. There we met porters of 14 people (2 for each person). Local guide Luke came with us, he was from the village of Paya. The porters were divided exactly in half on bare and shod.

We distribute the goods and went. On this day our guide Olga Rumyantsev promised us 7:00 grueling transition. First, a bit along the fields, and then we went into impassable jungle…

 

About four hours later we were on the barely visible path, climbing over fallen tree trunks and forced his way through the bushes. Sometimes porters had to work a machete. One of the locals are periodically read to us a short lecture on the local flora (fauna there is miserable).

The first big rest we did after four hours of walk, came out of the woods on an alpine meadow. By the way we have risen about a thousand meters. The mood was good: More three hours at an open area with a small rise - and we are in the camp. But three hours later accompanied us Papuans showed no indication that we will soon stop. And our forces were calculated at the end. I asked - where? And I get the answer: three hours. Maybe a mistake? We are waiting for Luke to ask again, but he confirmed. It came as a surprise even to Olga Rumyantseva. And Luke said that, first, it will be a normal place for the camp not earlier than three hours, and secondly, that place is convenient because is close to the top.

 

 We go further, angry and knackered, knowing that he was right. Around the swamp, there is no place to put the tent. Someone tries to joke, they say, the Papuans have no watches there, so their concept of time is extensible. Not fair. Papuans were very punctual (told breakfast would be at 6:30 - and it was), and the sense of time they have correct. As a result, the very first of us did go three hours. And the latest (this, of course, I) – at all four. All this time we walked by a long ridge at an altitude of approximately 3800-4000 meters, the trail first rose 50-100 m, then fell and rose again.

At the end of such difficulty we lost scored meters, going down at 300 meters to the river and the forest, where there really was a clearing suitable for the camp. An hour went to make a campsite. …. I was upset by my tent and laid down to sleep on an empty stomach, I only drink.

All turned out as always spontaneously. We just took a bus in Mendoza and went to Copiapo. Just to kill time, since before the plane there was five days. In Copiapo, we hired a pickup and decided to try to go to Ojos. Ojos del Salado - is the highest volcano in South America and the world.

So we got into the car and drove to the Atacama Desert. I do not drive a car, and Xenia has no experience of driving an SUV, but we are not scared. In the evening, courageously overcome all difficulties off-road, we were in the high-altitude camp "Atacama" at an altitude of 5200. It is 5 am when we began to climb to the top. The weather was clear but very windy. In Elbrus in such wind, I would not be led, to be honest. I do not know when exactly – at 2 p.m., perhaps, we were "standing" on the top.

Then there was a rapid descent. After resting for five minutes on foot, Xu sat behind the wheel of our car, and we rushed to the Laguna Verde, warm up in the hot springs. The next day we traveled through the neighborhood, stopping at various places of interest. We visited the lakes, waterfalls, gorges, salt marshes, seeing the wild flamingos. I was struck by the beauty and abundance of colors of the desert. This is my first meeting with this desert, but I hope not the last.

Now we're sitting at the airport waiting for the plane of Oxana. Today she flies home, and I stay in Chile. No exact plan as usual there, just go to the south. What will come of this? Wait and see...

Chile – it is an amazing country of 1000 volcanoes and thousands of lakes, glaciers and deserts... In Chile, there is 15 regions, all lovely and picturesque. Today I want to show you just one - Atacama ...

Often travelers, who come to climb Ojos, in a hurry do not have time to see this beauty.

All (awesome) photos Atacama here >>>>>>>

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well, now a few words about the ascent ofOjos del Salado.... It's time ...

No special difficulties, most importantly, as always - be lucky with the weather. Well, no need to rush - 7000 meters yet – a need of acclimatization has not been canceled ...

I had hoped to acclimatize on Orizaba, but between the two mountains I got 14 days. A lot, too many. But I could not resist and tried to start climb on top of Ojos immediately after arrival. I had a luck, but... not right!

 

 

 

We had a picnic with a guide Mario first right into the crater, well then moved to the top, in total spending on the summit more than three hours. Good weather and lack of wind contributed to this. But in the end, the desire to go down to the restaurant and wash out to sea and had overpowered ...

Oh yes, our car was not able to climb up to 5800 meters, so we lugged all by yourself from the 5200 and back. From Copiapo to Copiapo we spent 6 days for the ascent ...

Along the way I lost the camera. Then it was found, but returned me only flash card with photos. Sorry for the camera, which was on Everest, South Pole, and many other points ...

But I'm happy, now I have something to show you ..

Take care of yourself! Good luck in the mountains. Vitaly S.

I was with Israel Breton, who of his 37 years he goes to Orizaba 18 years .. What can I say .. For most physically fit people the ascent under such leadership will not be difficult .. We did 4.5 hours to the top and with the first rays of the sun, I took out the camera.

Do not miss this moment when you could see a huge shadow of the mountain on top of which you are pleased to stand .. For some reason I always do not wish to go from the top … first long climb, climb, and then finish ! Striking feeling .. such pacification and then .. Especially on Everest struck it and I remember - all fussed with some flags, photographed "in memory " , although most in this situation rarely generally get at least some good shots , and I just stood there and watched the sunrise over the Earth, trying to understand where I remember what I saw .. And it was so nice and peaceful ..

So it was the same on Orizaba– quite met the sun, made some jump for pictures and we had to go down ..
