Participants and guides: Garrett Christian Madison, Chase Allan Merriam, Jennifer Lynn Drummond (all from the USA), Alexey Lonchinsky, Viktor Afanasyev (guides from Russia).

 On September 14, the start is at 7: 00 from the Bezengi base. The path goes along the glacier and turn left – there is the Russians bivouac at 3500 . We got there at 14-30. On September 15, the start was at 6-00, we came to the VTSPS bivouac at 15-00. But we climb to the bivouac higher, where there is more space for tents, in total, we reached it at 16 o'clock.

On September 16, exit 5-30 and at 13 we were at the top  of Mount Dyh-Tau. We went down to the bivouac at 18 o'clock.

September 17 descent to the Bezengi base, exit at 7-00, finish at 18-00.

We climbed as standard, everything according to the plan. The weather was rather good, but we got into a thunderstorm on the top. We were lucky, there were only static discharges...

Boris Egorov, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Greece:

Hello everyone!  For two days, our team climbed in one of the most beautiful places in Greece called Meteora. There are huge pillars about 300 meters high, some of them are occupied by active monasteries. This whole natural and man-made complex is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The rock is a conglomerate, and quite fragile, it is necessary to climb carefully, since almost any stone can, if desired, simply be removed from the wall. An additional difficulty is that the belay on bolts is quite rare (5-6 meters between the points) and you can additionally belay only in rare crevices or by throwing loops on all the same protruding unreliable stones.

We made 3 climbs, and I managed to make one parachute jump from one of the walls.

Grigory Kuznetsov and his wife Anastasia made a trip to Svalbard and after the trip sent us a report with photos:

 Separately, I would like to praise Your partners from the center of Arctic tourism Grumant.

The tour is organized very efficiently, excellent logistics, food, accommodation, equipment. All very well.

 As for the Svalbard.

The place is incredible, almost unearthly. From the moment when you walk out of the plane - understand that you are in the Arctic.

 In General-an excellent tour. Huge thank you from us with Nastya for the impression and experience!

We got a review of the trip to Baikal from Mary Minaeva.

I would like to express my gratitude for the organized trip. It is indeed deservedly included in the list of the best tour on the planet. Your partners from Irkutsk also deserve all praise. We were the first group this year and all the roughness of the "pioneers" were imperceptibly smoothed for us.

 It is very difficult to convey all the emotions and impressions received during the trip, it is necessary to see with your own eyes.

Amazing, unforgettable, gorgeous, charming, impressive, divine, multifaceted, fabulous, soulful... this is only a small fraction of those epithets that should characterize this miracle. I hope that the photos will at least bring a little closer to those fantastic realities and take your breath away.

 Sincere gratitude and recommendations to all, all, all: at least once in my life to visit Lake Baikal.

Vladimir Kotlyar, a guide of the 7 Summits Club:  adventures of Russians in Papua begin!!!! We got to Jayapura after long and painful seats in planes and airports. The Papua met by the heat and the greenery. Such a contrast after the Russian frosty winter….

 This time we have made a special program – it starts immediately in the Papuans-cannibals, so that participants better acclimatize and get used to the world of Papuans.

Passed this stage, they will be admitted to the subsequent ascent to the highest point of Australia and Oceania - Pyramid Carstensz.

 Members of the expedition:

 Irina Zisman (great Amazon, recently returned from South America and Antarctica with Vinson and Aconcagua in his belt);

Irina - beauty Ambassador at the Seven Summits

 George Sadetsky (who has already climbed Everest and Vinson);

 Mikhail Kornev (just few days as ascended of Orizaba with Sergei Larin).

Valeriy Myasoedov, guide of 7 summits Club from Argentina:

 

Hello to all from El Calafate! The program "Trekking to the foot of the Fitz Roy" was completed. The trekking route was simple though and involves 6-9 hours of trek each day. Weather is a key factor in Patagonia on this route. We were lucky, only the second day, so for a change, showed us the nature of this terrain, rain, wind... Other days we enjoyed  views of Fitz Roy, as they say the view from North view from South view from West, but not quite the same …. and Cerro Torre. We photographed without end, each angle is wonderful in its own way. Tatiana and Alexander - married couple, amazed by their curiosity and endurance. Local guide Mathias promoted my Spanish and helped Tatiana to consolidate the initial knowledge.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Report of Maxim Shakirov about the blitz-ascent on Toubkal by a group of almost newcomers. PHOTOS

Maxim Shakirov, guide of 7 summits Club:

The group called "Incognito" has successfully completed the blitz expedition in Morocco!)

3 of the 4 participants reached the highest point of the country, the Atlas mountains and North Africa - Toubkal (4 167 m).

The fourth member turned from a height of 3 600 meters.

 

Our blitz the day of the ascent:

4:20 - exit from shelter;

After an hour our group split: Andrey, Oxana and Victoria with a local guide, Mohammed go to the top, I'm Marina and continue climbing, but slowly...

7:20 in the morning, with 400 meters of altitude during 3 hours climing, we turn down, knowing that today, for the Marina (which is actually the first time in the mountains) it is a  top.

At 9:30 I go out from the shelter towards the summit, towards the brave three, worrying that they may need my help on the descent...

At 10:40, I meet the main group at 3 600 metres, the same height, where we turned with Marina...

My help is not needed - the team, though tired, but happy, are going down!)

The heroine of the day unquestionably was Victoria, which for the first time in the mountains ( Andrei and Oksana before that ascension was only the Olympus)!!!

Olga Rumyantseva, guide of the 7 summits Club:  news about our trekking "To the heart of Tien Shan". In 10 days our team went about 100 kms in the mountains of Tien Shan.

This morning we got acquainted with the ancient architecture of the city of Karakol – with a mosque, built in the style of a Chinese pagoda and a wooden Church built without nails.

 Yesterday our "mega group" in number of 17 people arrived in Bishkek.  Our Plan is to go trekking to the base camp of the legendary peaks Khan-Tengri and Pobeda. But the plan is still far. While we drove all day, ate, slept, bathed in Issyk-Kul...

The 7 Summits Club expresses its gratitude to Mr. Khodak for his trust to us, which was reflected in the fact that he wrote a short, but very business-like report about the trip on the program "Climb of Mount Kenya , 4 days Safari and relaxing on the Indian ocean"! Wish new heights and look forward to seeing in our ranks!

 

"Successful trip to Kenya with climbing to Mount Kenya, a variety of game drives and relaxing on the Indian ocean coast me and my girls (wife and daughter 13 years old) came to the liking.

 

By itself, the rest in Equatorial Kenya interesting due to the gentle climate, combined with strange natural landscape and rich animal fauna.

On mount Kenya we hiked the entire group, including two children. Guides on the mountain was warm-hearted, attentive, unobtrusive. That's a plus.

 

Hotels in Nairobi and on Safari travelers. That's a plus.

 

Safari various, including, water on the lake, valosaari and Safari at dawn. That's a plus.

Failed to see the leopard. It's a little minus. I did see a Cheetah. This is a big plus.

Tour guide in Nairobi spent too short a tour of the capital. It's a minus.

 

I do not exclude that in Nairobi there is nothing, as it consists mainly of slums and banal high-rise buildings. We looked at the fences of the presidential residence and the Russian Embassy, saw the Parliament building and the Supreme court. The tour is over. Then we had a good time at the restaurant "Carnivor". This is a big plus.

 

The guide was corrected on Safari. He independently sought out the animals, drove them back to back, not afraid to pull off the well-worn trails. Well done. That's a plus. Suggest to hire a guide for clients "7 summits" in the future. Customers will not regret.

 

The Indian ocean is amazing by definition. There is nothing to say. Local merchants are slowly already starting to talk in Russian.

 

All the little "inconsistencies" and travel problems completely blocked the total pleasure of traveling.

 

 

We liked the trip."
