Our Captain led the ship of the 7 Summits Club through the "world flood" of 2020, symbolically landing on the top of Mount Ararat. The storms have not yet subsided, but we believe in the course we are on. Because our leader is high experienced pilot, full of energy and enthusiasm, able to draw the right conclusions from the results of their projects and numerous plans.

We wish Alexander long years of leadership in our company, new ideas and achievements, always be surrounded by beautiful people, health and excellent physical shape!

We very much hope that today's day of congratulations will end with a real holiday at a large table, surrounded by a pleasant company of close friends!

Happy New Year! We wish you good health and new summits! Let join us!

 In 2020, the 7 Summits Club entered at full speed, in the usual rhythm and in full confidence in our strength. During the New Year period of 19/20, our groups traveled all over the world, mainly in the Southern Hemisphere. All our programs were successful, members of ascents and hikes returned home happy.

 Then the madness came, and quarantine crept up on us. But we did not lose heart and conducted online training sessions that helped us prepare in the summer!

 We managed to get a full season on Elbrus, in the summer every week groups of the 7 Summits Club climbed the summit. And this summer there lasted until mid-October! We have rediscovered Ararat! Tanzania with Kilimanjaro in general was the only country completely safe from COVID, and we returned to Africa when returned flights! Now South America has opened a little, Ecuador, Mexico and Chile are hosting guests. And our groups already climbed local summits…

 Celebrating the New Year, we wish all mankind to defeat the evil infection! And thanks for the lessons of the outgoing year! We began to more appreciate freedom, we realized that we could not live without traveling and climbing!

 Everest, Denali, Antarctica, Aconcagua and other mountains – how lonely its were without us this year! How its are waiting for us!

 Sincerely yours, the 7 Summits Club.

 Friends, love the mountains, go to the mountains! The 7 Summits Club is always ready to help you organize your mountain trips. Giving people happiness is our mission.

If possible, leave the mountains behind clean! And in general, do everything possible to make the mountains remain (become) the territory of freedom, the territory where you can meet with pristine nature, a place of joyful meeting with friends, a place where you want to return, where you want to bring your children, where everyone will be happy!

 

 

 

020 Theme: Mountain biodiversity

Mountain biodiversity is the theme of this year’s International Mountain Day, so let's celebrate their rich biodiversity, as well as address the threats they face.

Mountains loom large in some of the world’s most spectacular landscapes. Their unique topography, compressed climatic zones and isolation have created the conditions for a wide spectrum of life forms.

Biodiversity encompasses the variety of ecosystems, species and genetic resources, and mountains have many endemic varieties. The differentiated topography in terms of altitude, slope and exposure in mountains offers opportunities to grow a variety of high-value crops, horticulture, livestock and forest species.

For example, mountain pastoralists in Pakistan have a highly treasured livestock genetic resource pool with special traits bred into animals, such as disease resilience, which can help adaption to changing climate. Nearly 70% of mountain land is used for grazing and provides manure that enhances soil fertility. Livestock not only produces food items such as milk, butter and meat, but also valuable by-products, such as some of the most precious yarns, like cashmere wool.

However, climate change, unsustainable farming practices, commercial mining, logging, and poaching all exact a heavy toll on mountain biodiversity. In addition, land use and land cover change, and natural disasters, accelerate biodiversity loss and contribute to creating a fragile environment for mountain communities. Ecosystem degradation, loss of livelihoods and migration in mountains can lead to the abandonment of cultural practices and ancient traditions that have sustained biodiversity for generations.

The sustainable management of mountain biodiversity has been increasingly recognized as a global priority. Sustainable Development Goal 15, target four, is dedicated to the conservation of mountains’ biodiversity in consideration of its global relevance. Biodiversity in all ecosystems is in focus, as the United Nations has declared 2021 to 2030 the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration and governments prepare to negotiate the post-2020 global biodiversity framework for adoption this year at the 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP 15) to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).

Celebrate this International Day 2020 with your community and friends preparing an event or joining the conversation on social media using the hashtag #MountainsMatter. Pass on some of the key messages, or share about the biodiversity in the mountains near you, or a photo of your favorite mountain.

Nikolai Cherny is 82 years old! A graduate of the legendary Moscow "Burevestnik" mountaineering school, a member of the first Soviet expedition "Everest-82", one of the leaders of the Soviet mountaineering and multiple climber in the Himalayas, the senior trainer of the most significant mountaineering expeditions of the new Millennium (the first ascent to the summit of Lhotse Middle in the spring of 2001, the first ascent on Northern face direct on Everest in the spring of 2004, the first ascent on the West face of K2 in the summer of 2007).

 

 

Uncle Kolya is a standard of wisdom generally accepted among mountaineers, as well as an example of maintaining physical fitness and interest in life.

 

Climbe ron the Himalayan eight-thousandth mountains:

- Everest twice as part of the 7 Summits Club expeditions in 2005 from Tibet, and in 2009 from Nepal;

- Kanchenjunga (1989, Deputy head of the expedition);

- Annapurna (1991);

- Shisha Pangma (1992);

- Lhotse Main (1997);

- Cho-Oyu (1999).

 

 

By climbing Mount Everest in 2009, Nikolai Cherny set two outstanding achievements: he became the oldest Russian (70 years old) on the highest peak in the World and the oldest guide in the World who managed to do it!

 

We congratulate Nikolai Dmitrievich, our close friend and senior comrade, the guide of our expeditions, including Everest! We wish You long years of health, new journeys and many happy days!

Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 summits Club from Crimea:

The Birthday celebration of the 7 summits Club took place yesterday in Yalta. Despite the morning rain, more than 25 people took part in the mass climbing of via-ferrata on Ilyas Kaya. All the members were happy and filled with emotions. In the evening, we had a holiday party on the seaside beach of Yalta - with toasts, socializing and even swimming in the sea. By the way, the sea is now warm, the water temperature is 20 degrees!  Everyone liked the new format of our celebration. We will act in a similar way in the future.

Our friend and companion on many 7 Summits Club expeditions Daniil Briman is not just a brewer, but a brewer of the highest category. Suffice it to mention that he is the Chairman of the Council of the Union of Russian Brewers! And he had a very good tradition – to brew a unique special beer dedicated to a specific mountaineering ascent and a specific summit. So the rapid blitz ascent on Elbrus ended with the following scene of taking snow from the top to prepare a new variety of beer:

 

 

 

These are our members! We are proud! Brewer Daniil Briman previously brewed with us and treated us to special beers: Everest, Denali and Mont Blanc.

 

By the way, the idea of a super-blitz on Elbrus was born in Daniil during our recent friendly expedition on Ararat, in a conversation with Alexander Abramov.

 Oleg Savchenko is an absolutely wonderful person, one of the most important people in the Volgograd region. He is a highly successful businessman and established politician, who worked three terms in the State Duma of the Russian Federation, a Deputy of the regional Duma. In his youth, Oleg was a handball player, an international-class athlete, and became interested in mountaineering only after he turned 50 years old. With the 7 Summits Club  Savchenko made ascents to Everest, where he performed his unique project. With the help of Sherpas, a unique operation was carried out to bury the body of Slovenian Marko Lihteneker, who died in 2005 near the summit.

 

 

And also with us Savchenko climbed other peaks of the "seven": Vinson, Aconcagua and Carstensz. And so he finished everything on July 25, 2020 in native Elbrus.

Congratulations to Oleg! We wish you new summits, new achievements, good health and luck!

The 7 Summits Club congratulates all mountain lovers!

The mountains have made our lives richer, we are responsible for what mountains will be for future generations.

 ‘Mountains matter for Youth’ - The motto of International Mountain Day in 2019.

 

  

International Mountain Day 2019

 

‘Mountains matter for Youth’ is the theme of this year’s International Mountain Day, which is celebrated on 11 December.

Young people are active agents of change and the future leaders of tomorrow. They are custodians of mountains and of their natural resources, which are being threatened by climate change.

The 2019 International Mountain Day’s theme is a great opportunity for young generations to take the lead and request that mountains and mountain peoples become central in the national and international development agendas, receive more attention, investments and tailored research.

 



The day will also be an occasion to educate children about the role that mountains play in supporting billions up and downstream – by providing freshwater, clean energy, food and recreation.

International Mountain Day is a chance to highlight that for rural youth, living in the mountains can be hard. Many young people leave in search of a better life and employment. Migration from mountains leads to abandoned agriculture, land degradation and a loss of cultural values and ancient traditions.  Education and training, market access, diverse employment opportunities and good public services can ensure a brighter future for young people in the mountains.

In the coming months, a communication tool box for International Mountain Day will be made available on the IMD website in six languages.

While ‘Mountains matter for Youth’ is the suggested theme for 2019, countries, communities and organizations are welcome to celebrate International Mountain Day through themes of their choosing. What can you do?

 

What can you do?

  • Raise awareness of mountains on 11 December by organizing youth forums, hands-on activities, presentations, student debates, photo and art competitions, hikes and events targeted to specific age groups.
  • Write to us about the International Mountain Day event you are planning at info-IMD @fao.org so we can publish it on the International Mountain Day website.
  • Join the conversation on social media using the #MountainsMatter hashtag. Share your stories about the reality of living in the mountains as a young person, or post a photo of your favourite mountain moment and share it with us and your friends.
  • Access our tool kit to help share your story.

The 7 Summits Club congratulates Denis Provalov on the anniversary 50 years! New achievements for you, in a new age category!

 Our dear friend!  We wish you further movement to various summits in life! You've already proved all to everyone once. The symbol of your success in life has become a unique record: the largest amplitude. Namely, the record depth in caves and the highest peak of the World (twice) on the surface.  Everest was reached in the team of the 7 Summits Club.
