ROMAN REUTOV: It’s not a secret that this spring, we have organized an expedition to mount Everest from the North side, in conjunction with «7 Summits Club», «RD Studio», «RedFox» and «Yandex». The expedition was stopped in the middle, due to an earthquake magnitude of 8 – We were lucky that nobody from our Expedition was hurt. We were forced to evacuate. Despite this, we managed to create a panorama of a 19km route on the way from Base Camp (5100m) to Advanced Base Camp (6500m).
For the First Time everybody can pass this scenic mountainous route without exposing themselves to any danger.
Panoramas are published in advance of the film "Everest" coming out in cinemas on 24 September 2015.

A special page dedicated to panoramas is located at http://yandex.ru/promo/everest.

Panoramas themselves you can easily find using this linkhttp://maps.yandex.ru/-/CVgTfJ3G.

In the morning in Delhi – a day already in a festive Moscow! So we have a double celebration. Our team came back, all intact and healthy. All  have unscheduled free time, it is - great!

Virtually nothing is noticeable, the city looks like a unbroken. Only a few old buildings collapsed. Everything else - completely unhurt. No external damage in town, roads or buildings. We are now at the hotel Yak and Yeti , everything is fine here. The only thing that the decorative stone, which was on the edge of the pool, got down to the pool. Everything else - completely intact.

Monday, May 4, 2015 Farewell to the base camp. Goodbye, Everest!

During the farewell party on May 2th suddenly heavy snow threw, the wind blew but we are in tent an had great drunk and overdance. It was great! And in the morning we saw a snow-covered sunny camp – as a nature has made us a gift for our departure:

 

 

 

The team of the "7 Summits Club", Valdis Pelsh with his videoteam, and the organizers and members of the remaining 13 expeditions from the Tibetan side were in a difficult situation: CTMA (Sino-Tibetan mountaineering association) closed Everest and all the other mountains of Tibet for the whole spring season 2015.

In the past it was in 2008, during the Olympic Games in Beijing - but that was the planned closure; China urgently closes the mountain for the first time. So we are all faced with unexpected insurmountable difficulty. Well, nothing special, we packed up and went home.

According to recent reports, the number of victims of the earthquake in Nepal has exceeded seven thousand men; our Nepalese partners believe that the government underestimates the numbers three times, therefore, it is about twenty thousand dead - an enormous figure. Tremors continue, in these conditions it is possible to say the same words as Alex Abramov: "You want to the mountain or you want stay alive?".

Today in the base camp of Club of 7 Summits Club there was a significant event. We called its “farewell party”. We were tired to live in uncertainty, and today, at last, people relaxed. And at last, the sufficient attention was paid to girls.

As hit of evening, oxygen cocktail “for free”.

The last 3 days, our team have experienced big turmoils . In the beginning from the earthquake and death of a large number of people in Nepal. Then from understanding that our Everest expedition comes to an end.
For the majority of us, this ascenst was the biggest dream of the last years. And the spent time and finance can't be returned.
But now an understanding of correctness of this decision comes to us. Decisions on cancellation of all climbs by the Chinese authorities in Tibet in this season is right.

 First, the moral factor doesn't allow to go for climbing “among” thousands of lost people.
Secondly, the safety issue of ascent isn't rather defined. Tremors still proceed, as well as falls of stones and ice on the mountain and in the upper camps.
Thirdly, other expeditions already started being curtailed. The Chinese team and team on preparation of a route already left base camp. To be alone on the Everest for us it would be very difficult.

Not without regret, but with understanding of a situation, we declare the end of our expedition on Everest. And tomorrow, on May 2th, we will organize "Farewell party" for all big base camp. And the day after tomorrow, on May 3, we begin our far way home.
As the boundary cities of Jangmu and Kodari are destroyed, our way passes through Lhasa. From where all of us will depart on May 6th to Katmandu.
Best regards, everybody!
And with a holiday on May 1!

Abramov Alexander and Everest team 2015.

19 day, April 28, BC (5 200 m), day of rest

Source: blog of Evgeny Karyakin: everest-2015.blogspot.ru

 

Today, tomorrow and the day after tomorrow there will be planned rest days in the BC after the ABC. We spend it in the internet tent reading the news about the horrible disaster in Nepal and in the Himalayas. The situation with the continuation of the ascent is unclear; there is a lot of conflicting rumors. Leaders of other expeditions come to our camp to talk with Alex Abramov, share gossip, bring and drink alcoholic beverages. The mood at all, in General, is rather depressed.

 

 

If you take the dry residue from gossip and rumors, so far there is no concrete. We have no official Chinese statements of authorized persons until now. Leaders of expeditions await of arrival of a big sports boss from Lhasa, it is possible that after his arrival appears some understanding of the situation, or probably not. When we get the big boss is also unknown.

Alex Abramov gives a Skype interview with the Russian media directly from the sun, Valdis Pelsh – by phone, Bogomolov – by e-mail.

 

 

On the Internet there are a whole bunch of distorted and just invented informational messages. Importantly, none of the Russian trekkers, hikers and climbers who were in Nepal during the Catastrophe, was not injured... This is important – there were a lot of friends in different places;

 

 

 

Thank God that all living things!

Currently we can only sit, to enjoy nature and to wait for further developments.

Yesterday it was our last rest Day in  the base camp. We have mastered the different possibilities of our base Camp:  played table tennis and billiard, watched TV and listened to a lecture by Valdis on the film making.

 In the evening we celebrated the birthday of Roman Reutov. He is now 31 years old. The evening was not boring, there were: toast friends and the leaders of the expedition, Tibetan folklore ensemble of the people's Republic, famous showman (Valdis)  from the first Russian television channel.  The main item was obligatory dance with every expedition girl in the hall. The party was a success.

 Today the team goes to 5800 m and tomorrow to the Advanced Base Camp at 6400 meters.

The weather is bad, the snow falling down.

 Follow the events live!!

The first outing to the altitude of 5800 meters is usually the hardest.

For the first time the team wears backpacks, and it is hard after the long and heavy jeeps trip. We begin walking on a broken yaqui trail. There is a lot of snow all around. The locals don't remember so much snow. A lot of snow is as on the trail, as on the slopes.

After 7 hours, the team from Basic (5200m) came to an intermediate (Middle) camp.

There is a comfortable accommodation: warm dining tent, warm tents, warm sleeping bags. The camp stands on the crest of the moraine, and all the wind flow around. The night went well, in the morning all were able to wake up :)

Next evening, already in the Base camp we inaugurated our club tent. It is a hemisphere of 12 meters in diameter. Inside there are: the TV, billiards, table tennis, library.

Now almost nobody from members gets ill. But Oleg Pimenov and Liana Chavdarova went down for prevention. They have a mild cough and to restore health, it is useful to stay down in the warmth of a kilometer below the Base camp.

Hello! This is Alexander Abramov from Tibet. Yesterday we had excursions to the Palace of the Dalai Lama Potala. Me and Mingma with the other guides were doing different sorts of purchases, Internet settings and all sorts of other things. Today the hosts said goodbye to us and our team drove 7 hours to the town of Shigatse, where we settled in a very nice hotel. Here we shall buy blankets, pillows, for base camp, in order to live comfortably over the next forty days. And tomorrow we will go further.

By the way, yesterday a dinner was held with the leadership of the Tibetan mountaineering. We discussed, among others, how to fix ropes on Everest. And also we discussed a visit the Tibetan climbers in Russia, to be held in June. The 7 Summits Club invites several representatives of the Tibetan mountaineering, with whom we want to climb Elbrus.
Goodbye! To the following information! Bye!

Yesterday our team arrived in Kathmandu.

After a short briefing and “distribution of elephants”, shirts and jackets, all met at the party. Russian Ambassador to Nepal Sergey Velichkin came to meet and greeted us.

By tradition, the party was held in the chambers of the former Royal Palace, in the end of it there was a disco. And why not? All team members have long been on planes, and wanted to move.

For more than 10 years of experience in the Everest region, Alexander Abramov and 7 summits Club have formed a great team of staff, mainly composed of persons Sherpas nationality. These are our true friends, who love their work, friendly and always willing to help. Of course, there were different cases in different situations, sometimes misunderstanding, there have been mistakes. One thing is clear, every year the team is working better and better. Thanks to our Nepalese chef Mingma Gelu Sherpa!

We have only good news. Mingma Gelu, our Nepalese Director, will go with our expedition to Everest. For this purpose, he got rid of the headmaster's belly. A few years Mingma was limited his work to office and base camp, and is now returning to the mountain. He had 8 successful summits of Everest, his sister Laki – 6 summiter. And she, too, returns to beat her record for number of ascents among women.

 

 

 

 

Meanwhile, Alex Abramov is thinking how he will be seen in history. The film crew will soon arrive and will start to work. Apparently, with the villainous beard, typical of the bad guys in Hollywood movies, Alex did not want to be captured for posterity. Better to be as good looking as the Dalai Lama. The benefit in Kathmandu – you can be shaved for a penny, they even forget about the strike, when the client coming.
