  Hello! Alexander Abramov from Alaska, from the Denali expedition.  Once again I remind, we have 10 Russian members and three American guides. Of our ten members we also have three guides of the 7 Summits Club and I, Alexander Abramov, as the head of the expedition. Today we are at a very good pace dragged loads from the camp 8000  to the camp 11000. That is, it was a height difference of almost one kilometer. We walked with heavy backpacks for four hours and forty minutes.  It's fast. Then we went down to the camp at 8000. The camp is in a beautiful place here, very warm, even hot at times. But we know that after a while all this, of course, will end. Tomorrow we will move our camp from 8000 to 11000 feet. We will also spend two more nights there.

 The weather is good, but promise deterioration.  All, Bye!

Alexander Abramov, President of  the 7 Summits Club:

Hi! Today I, Alexander Abramov, made my 6th ascent from the project "7 summits in 7 months". It was Elbrus. At the top I stood at 5:30 in the morning in calm, warm weather, which is very rare to find on Elbrus. I stood alone, because due to acclimatization on Everest, the speed of ascent was furious.  All the rest of the group was behind for a few hours.  Now ahead it will be Denali with a group from 23 June.

Our leader, captain and head of the expedition of the 7 Summits Club Alex Abramov est successfully coped with all the tasks. He climbed to the highest peak of the world for the 10th time! A few climbers in the world can boast of such an achievement. This is a record for Russia, the CIS and all of continental Europe. Only a couple of English guides and couple of their colleges from USA  have more  Everest summits. We do not take Sherpas into account, they have their own statistics.

 

 

How Everest is given – just look at this photo…

 

 

 

Alexander Abramov continues his epic program "Seven peaks in seven months". Ahead -  Elbrus and Denali!
