Aloha, friends! The team of the 7 Summits Club on Lenin Peak continues to prepare for the summit assault. More precisely, we are resting now. But, as you remember, we have a rule – if it's a rest, then it's active, if it's a holiday, then it's sports. Therefore, after breakfast, we went for a walk to the "castles" created not by man, but by nature itself.

News from the team of Alex Abramov from Lenin Peak. On July 19, the entire team, 12 participants and 5 guides, climbed to the top of Razdelnaya 6134m. During the ascent, on a steep slope, the guide of our team, Boris Dedeshko, the owner of the Golden Ice Axe and one of the strongest climbers of Kazakhstan, saved the life of a climber from the team climbing parallel with us.

When Boris's team traversed a steep snow-ice slope at the exit to 5600m, an uncontrolled fall began from the top of the slope by a climber from a neighboring team. The slide could continue for another 200 m with a flight to a rocky area. Boris, in a jump, risking his life, stopped the fall and fixed the climber on the slope. Thank him for this act!

After spending two nights at an altitude of 5300 in order to acclimatize, our entire team yesterday, July 20, went down to rest in Camp-1 at 4400m. The weather at Lenin Peak is consistently bad. Since the beginning of the season, only 3 people have reached the top.

Nikita Slotin, guide of the 7 Summits Club from Pamir:  Hello to all from the first camp from a height of 4400, from the group "Hello, Muntain Fever"! We have had a slight change of plans. Today we went for a walk in the direction of Yukhin peak to the height of 4700, divided into mini-groups, in which we will later work on the mountain. The members begin to feel the height and actively undergo acclimatization! The weather is good, the sun is shining, but there is still a strong wind at Lenin Peak, which does not allow to look at the peak in all its glory.  Tomorrow we are going to the glacier, walking in crampons and practicing movement along a glacier. Guides of the group are Alexander Abramov and Nikita Slotin.

The second group of the 7 Summits Club with the guide Vladimir Kotlyar also stay in the camp 1.  They trained today on the glacier.

Nikita Slotin, guide of the 7 Summits Club:  Two groups of the 7 Summits Club left the base camp today and went up to Camp 1. We loaded our belongings on horses and confidently moved towards the Travelers ' Pass. When we climbed the pass, we sent messages to our dear and beloved ones, because further communication may be unstable. We had a delicious snack, arranged a photo hunt for marmots and moved on! The picturesque trail, the huge scale of moraines and glaciers amaze the imagination. And with all this beauty, we did not even notice how we got to the camp, where we were already met by Volodya Kotlyar's group. And, of course, we appreciated the scale of the mountain!

 All participants feel well. Tomorrow, according to the plan, there will be a day of rest and preparation for going to the Second camp.

Guides Alexander Abramov and Nikita Slotin.
