Alex Abramov from Mexico:  The team leaves for the Assault Camp 4700. We gave some of the things to the porters. We will decide on the weather. So far, we are predicting gale-force winds of up to 70 km per hour. This is too much for Orizaba. But the mood of the team is cheerful. Tomorrow morning we plan to climb to the top of Orizaba all  together.

We wish all mountain lovers a Happy New Year on behalf of the 7 Summits Club! And personally from Alexander Abramov and Fyodor Konyukhov!

Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club from Mexico:

We came and settled in our Super Base Camp at an altitude of 4200m. We were greeted with great food. In our camp there are beautiful tents with a height of 2 meters, each of them has a living room and 2 bedrooms. There is no wind now. We hope that the bad forecast will not be justified, and we will reach the top on December 31.

After lunch, we walked to the height of 4400m. All the team members are fine. Tomorrow we go to the high-altitude camp 4700m and at night to storm the summit…

This is Alexander Abramov from Mexico. The team of friends of Fyodor Konyukhov continues the program of climbing  Mount Orizaba. Today we climbed the first peak of our program - Sierra Negra (4600m). We got up at 5 am, in a hotel in the city of Puebla. And by 8 am we arrived in the town of Zopan, which is located at the foot of Orizaba. Here we had breakfast and went on an acclimatization ascent. The ascent and descent on Sierra Negra took 7 hours along with the road. At the top, we installed an icon of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker. The climb wasn't easy for everyone. In the evening, part of the team has a headache.

Tomorrow we will move to the Base Camp near Orizaba at an altitude of 4200 meters. There Sasha Dorojunov and Luba Pershina already set for us tents.

Alex Abramov from Mexico: 

26.12.2020. News of the group following the program "Orizaba Peak - Mexico". In the morning we had a run in the Park "Grasshopper". The whole city seems to be running. Then the excursion tour took place in the iconic places of Mexico ity. We're all hungry, but the restaurants are only open for takeaways. We had to buy tacos and sit right on the sidewalk. For dessert, we found the house of the famous artist Frida Kahlo. Tomorrow we move to the city of Puebla.

 

 

         

 

27.12.2020. Today we moved from Mexico-City, to a great town called Puebla. On the way, we watched churches and ate grasshoppers. The city is boiling. It's easier here than in Mexico-City. Restaurants are open in the evening. Everything has become easier in the organization.

Luba Ivanova, guide of the 7 Summits Club from Mexico: "Photos from the climb of  Mount Cofre de Perote. On November 9, we climbed a beautiful peak with a height of 4283 m. This mountain is called Cofre de Perote, and is located opposite Mount Orizaba, which offers a stunning view from the top.

The path goes first through a spruce forest, then through a pine forest, and then along a path among grasses and stones. The summit is located on a high rock that resembles a chest. Hence the name, translated, "Pedro's Chest". The descent to the car takes only 2 hours, and from there it is not a long way by jeep to the town of Perote.

In the evening we went to Tlachichuca and climbed to a hotel in the village Soapin.
