Boris Egorov, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Mexico:

Long-awaited news from Mexico. Yesterday at two o'clock in the afternoon our team climbed the last rope of the huge wall, it is called El Gigante.  It was an incredible adventure! Three and a half days of continuous vertical movement, three nights suspended on inflatable platforms. There were practically no places on our route where you could at least stand, they were hanging in safety systems all the time. The rock is very wild, there is no one around, we have not seen a soul during the entire ascent. But it turned out to be absolutely detached from everything in the world, there were only us, the wall and our multi-kilogram trunks, which we dragged up after us. There are only a few such ascents in the world, and even more so in such exotic places. (Even just to get under the wall, we needed local guides with machetes). Of course, this is not our first rock adventure with Alexey and Zhenya, but we are experiencing such difficulty and danger for the first time. And such an event will be all the more memorable. Guides Boris Egorov and Vladimir Murzaev.

Summit! The group of the 7 Summits Club made a successful ascent on the summit of the Orizaba Volcano!

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Lyubov Ivanova: Summit! On January 8th at 10:30 am we were at the top. The group left the glacier 5000 m at 7 am.  After 2.5 hours, everyone was on the top, the first Natasha Sklyar!  The descent from the summit was also made in record time: 2 hours from the top to the upper camp at 4650 m. I must say that the weather has been seriously scaring us all these days, and there was a snowfall (hail) and a thunderstorm in earnest. And not a very good forecast, even from the Oso itself, for the night of the ascent.  But our team went into battle without hesitation and doubt, and reached the top in the shortest possible time!  I recommend all participants without exception for further ascents with the 7 Summits Club.

Boris Egorov, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Mexico: 

And we continue to warm up on the rocks in the Northern part of Mexico. We came to El Potrero Chico precisely because there are a huge number of multi-pitches (long climbing routes).  And this is exactly what you need to work out the interaction on the wall and develop strength endurance.   Yesterday we quickly climbed a rather long route of 12 pitches. Alexey was in the lead all the way, and the guides only served the delays and enjoyed the views like tourists. After the descent, we decided to run to a small tower before the pile, it looks like we have a solid collection of such rock "spires". At this point, we believe that the preparation is over and we have a whole day of flights and transfers to get to the canyon with a big rock walls.

Boris Egorov, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Mexico: 

Hello everyone from Mexico! A new adventure has begun, prepared especially for Alexey Sivkov and Zhenya Lesnitsky. We were going to climb the big wall again, in an adult way, with overnight stays in suspended platforms and with huge trunks, which we ourselves will drag up on ropes. But we will have it all in a few days, and in the meantime we are warming up on the rocks of the El Potrero chico massif. This is the most famous rock climbing area of Mexico, located near the city of Monterey. Guides Boris Egorov and Vladimir Murzaev.

Hello everyone and Happy New Year from North America! A group of five participants is located somewhere in the vastness of Mexico on the way to the highest volcano on the continent - Orizaba Peak (5636 m). On the way to the volcanoes, they get to know Mexico, its culture, history and, of course, gastronomy. The guide Lyubov Ivanova, an expert on Mexico, an ethnographer and an expert on ancient Indian culture, helps them to immerse themselves in the culture of the country.

  The team members walked around the historic center of Mexico City and the colorful Santo Angel district. They walked through the streets of colonial Puebla, the capital of the eponymous state of Mexico. And of course, they visited the largest pyramid in the world, Cholula. This pyramid with a cathedral on top against the background of volcanoes is one of the most photographed places in Mexico.
