 Philip is 13 years old, he is football fan of “Manchester City” since birth, knows all the players and most legendary “battles”. And this is it for the average story, because Philip conquered Mont Blanc today and his victory he dedicated to the favorite football club and his school – Fettes College.

 

 “We heard about mountaineers at school, but after the story of Greg Mortenson (Three Cups of Tea), I obtained a new dream – to meet the dawn at the altitude of 4000 meters. This victory I dedicate to the coolest team of sportsmen, who prove to us with every game that whenever it is impossible – then it is always about new possibilities!”

Roman Venediktov together with guide of the 7 Summits Club at 6.25 am  was on top of Mont Blanc. The second member of the blitz program, who due to health (too short acclimatization) was recommended a lower object, also was not left without a summit.  The replacement of Mont Blanc was found on the Italian side of Mont Blanc. Good weather favored all climbers today.

 Today cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko with the company goes for acclimatization of the White Valley traverse. Their group moved through the tunnel to Italy, where they rose to the station Helbronner on the cable car. From there they went to the hut Cosmique, at the foot of which held snow and ice classes.

Here is a short report of Mont Blanc ascent from our guide :

   We climbed very well, Andrey and Alice liked it. But they thought it would be easier.

On the day of the ascent we managed to slip into the weather window, all clearly on time. When we went down the weather deteriorated, and then no one could reach the top.  We spent a night on the descent in the hut Gouter. The next day we went down by snow-covered and sometimes icy rocks…
