Alex report: Hello! Yesterday, May 25, our second team (all members and guides) also reached the summit of Everest. The weather was not very good. There were many people, too many. So we could not go down immediately to the camp ABC, as we usually do. The team spent the night at the camp an altitude of 7700 meters. Now we slowly continue to descend to ABC. We're good ... and perfectly. I will try to dictate names of summiters. First two Ladies: Iwona Zadarnowska from Poland and Natasha Matusova from Russia. Now on: Alexander Abramov , Sergey Larin , both for the sixth time, Dmitry Ermakov, Alexey Boutin ... Who else ? Igor Stolyarov, Vladimir Voronin of Ukraine, seven Sherpas and Ravil Shamgulov, a Canadian citizen. I hope no one has forgotten.

It was difficult climb, very difficult. But actually we were lucky with the weather. Because when the number of 100 people in one day started, if a hurricane or some snow, then some people would have remained on the mountain. That's right. In our expedition all climbed the top:

14 members 3 guides and 14 Sherpas.



All except those who left us after acclimatization due to illness. I mean Kostya Ugriumov and Patrick Butler from Ireland.

Now we are all on the North Col , but it is still too early to celebrate ....

 

Alex Abramov from Everest: SUMMIT! Our first team was on the top at 7 a.m.

Surnames : Vasya Kernitsky, Zygmunt Berdyhovsky from Poland, Derek Mahon from Ireland, and Russian - Anton Seleznev, Sergey Dmitriev, Denis Abuev, Vlad Lachkarev.

Our team sits at the base camp and it looks like another 10 days the weather will not good. Forecast gave a good weather on May 27, may be. Of course, if the monsoon not comes.

We tried to have fun, watch movies etc. Billiards Championship of camp is in full swing. Maybe we'll go down to catch trout. Natasha and Sergei cooked Russian salad and fried potatoes.

In general, this year the weather does not make us happy: on the top constantly there is strong wind 100 km / h and more. Sherpas team have not fixed the ropes and said that until May 25 they could not do it.

The main thing that our mood is GREAT !

Almost all members of the group Everest climbers from 7 Summits Club took part in the competition. The event was held on the system "each with each" to 3 sets. Games stretched for almost the whole day. Chief judge of competitions was Ivona Zadarnovska-Wingert from Poland (by the friendly nickname "merry Pole").

By the end of the competition day by scoring we identified leaders who again played each other for prizes. As a result, Vladislav Lachkarev from Siberian Irkutsk won first place, second place went to Irishman Derek Mahon, and third place – for charming Muscovite Natalia Matusowa.

Evening at the banquet table, the winner was awarded a prize - a bottle of expensive wine. Vladislav first wanted to retire with this bottle in his tent, but decided to split the prize between all team members. As Vlad said during a toast : "Better to be first in the base camp than on Everest a second ! "

Now, the team members are trained for the next competition - are preparing in billiards.
