Irina Klimova and Igor Grishkov successfully completed the program, climbing to the tops of the Greater and Lesser Ararat. It was the first ascent of 7 Summits Club on the top of the Lesser Ararat, previously closed to climbers. According to the climbers: Little Ararat - separate top, and not the object for acclimatization. "... About 12 km across and up to 1600 meters. In addition, there is no path and you must climb vertically, on scree. " Hike on Lesser Ararat took 11 h (7 h up - 4 h down).

"The guides were great (Nuri and Musa). Organization at the highest level, all impeccably and professionally, and it's also very warm and friendly feel at home !!! Musa - an excellent guide and an extraordinary man. Thank you so much for the organization and for the recommendation of the guides - a good guide is the key to a successful climb! "

Hello! I just sent the group at the airport. As you know, we have completed the program . I hope all the participants of the group liked - I have not heard a different opinion. Deep snow on the ascent added complexity. Plus, the low height of the upper camp - the day we climbed 1700m. But we were lucky with the weather. Not that it was perfect weather window, so-so - windows, but very timely. And on the climb, we do not overheat, and on top none of us was blown away .

At the top of the whole team was together, anyone on the way was not lost. Summit: at 01:00 p.m. local time, date 06.05. Due to the snow cover - downhill was fast .
