Boris Egorov, the guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Peru:

So, our small persistent team climbed 750 vertical meters of one of the largest walls in Latin America. In the middle of the afternoon of September 2, we were standing on top of a granite hulk called the Sphinx, 5325m high.

The weather was on the verge, the whole ascent was covered with clouds and sometimes with snow. Despite this, it took us less than eight hours to get to the top. I spent quite a lot of time in these places and I know that it took us much less time than other sports teams, despite such a setback with the weather. The fitness of all participants affects not only physically, but also the coherence of actions, as well as competent acclimatization.

This is our third wall with participant Alexey and we do not intend to stop, further – more and more interesting! Well, now we are moving to Lima for a well-deserved rest on the ocean.

P.S. We need to check, but perhaps we are the first team from Russia who climbed this wall.

The group of the 7 Summits Club worked well on the rocks, but unpleasant news was waiting for them at the bottom

So, as a final preparation, our small team spent the night in the Llaca Valley in a shelter at an altitude of 4500 meters. The next morning we climbed a multi-pitch with a pleasant climbing on a granite wall. The whole route was led by our friend Alexey! We moved very quickly and smoothly. It's good when the team is solidary and we already understand each other half a word. Unfortunately, when we went down and got in touch, the news came that blocked the road to our main goal, Mount Sphinx. And now we can only wait and hope that the blockage will be cleared and we will be able to make the ascent. While we are resting, we are thinking about a backup plan, for example, to go another fivethousander, trample the snow with crampons.

The team of the 7 Summits Club held a session of high-altitude rock climbing in the area called "Stone Forest"

The preparatory part of the program continued in an amazing place! At an altitude of 4300m, the Khatun Machai rock climbing zone "stone forest" is located, an incredible variety of terrain and lines for climbing. But we agreed that it doesn't look much like a forest, rather like some kind of animal park, where every stone can be imagined alive, or sculptures given. Perhaps, at the moment, this is the highest mountain region where we were engaged in rock climbing. And the most fantastic. But it is not easy to move actively at such a height. The difficulty doubles. We continue to get used to the height. There are plans to move to 4500 in order to spend the night at altitude and also climb, but already a long route of five ropes.

Two days of travel and we finally reached the mountains. Now we are in the town of Huaraz in northern Peru. The active phase of the program has begun. Today was already the first training session on the rocks on the outskirts of the city. We didn't climb anything  difficult, but the task is different: to disperse the blood and get used to the loads at altitude. Today we climbed at an altitude of 3000, and tomorrow we will visit a very interesting and beautiful place where we will continue to warm up, but already at an altitude of more than 4000 meters.

There is another very famous place in the vicinity of Cusco in Peru: the Rainbow Mountains. They are named so, of course, precisely because all the mountains there are painted with minerals in all the colors of the rainbow. And what is important for us, the height of the observation deck exceeds 5000m. We admire the views and continue acclimatization.

This is the end of the cultural program and the next day we start moving north. First to the capital, to the city of Lima. Let's go down to the ocean level and relax on the beach.

Continuation of the Peruvian adventures. Our small friendly company today continued to explore the legacy of the Inca Empire.  At the same time, we finally managed to disperse the blood. We ran down to the mountain of Huayna Picchu 2667m. The ascent took us only half an hour, although the trail goes up the steps steeply. Perhaps we could have done it faster, but we had to carefully overtake other tourists and, of course, we took a lot of photos. From the top there is a gorgeous view of the entire Machu Picchu complex. Then the day passed quietly in the village, where we had to wait for the evening train. And already on the way back, right in the carriage, they arranged a small performance with dancing and a fashion show, alpaca wool products. Tomorrow, according to the plan, a new climb, we are going to admire the rainbow mountains.

A new unusual program for Alexey Sivkov, our friend and a very versatile climber, has started today in the capital of the Inca Empire, the city of Cuzco. The city is located at an altitude of 3400m, so we immediately began to acclimatize, and we really need a good habit of altitude. Ambitious plans! We are going to have a serious ascent of the huge granite wall in the Cordillera Blanca, Mount Sphinx (La Esfinge). But this is later, but for now we absorb the history of the ancient country, look at the sights and eat up for the future. Today we spent several hours exploring the ancient buildings of the Incas, climbed wherever you can climb and tasted delicious ceviche and alpaca steaks.

Summit! Two more days of adventures in Peru and culminating in the ascent of the Chachani volcano

Buenas Dias from the "Let's get a Llama" team! We did it! There is a peak of Chachani 6057! We had an amazing final two days. Yesterday we went to the Kolka Canyon — the second deepest canyon in the world, located in the valley of the Kolka River. Thousands of giant terraces, where the local population has been growing potatoes and cereals for hundreds of years, makes an incredible impression!

Then, we went to watch condors in a place called Cruz del Condor, where these giant birds are attracted by unusual air currents. They took off from nowhere and hovered over our heads — a fantastic sight! In the afternoon we managed to swim in the hot springs, and in the evening our team moved to the Base Camp of the Chachani volcano. At night we stormed and successfully climbed one of the iconic peaks of Peru — Mount of Brave.

I would like to say that on this trip we discovered Peru from almost all sides, starting from gastronomic pleasures, cultural attractions of the ancient Inca civilization, ending with the most beautiful peaks of the Southern Andes!

Friends, join our next trip to Peru this fall! You will definitely not regret it!

Hello everyone from Peru!

  For three whole days we had no communication, and by the way, a lot of interesting things happened. Looking ahead, you can congratulate us on the first peak of our program — we have successfully ascended the Peak of Maria 5550m!

  It all started with the Rainbow Mountains and a mini ascent of Vinikunka 5036m. Unfortunately, we were not very lucky with the weather and we practically did not see the most important Rainbow Mountain. However, after the descent, when we continued trekking to our first camp, we were able to see the Rainbow Mountains in all its glory!

  Our first stop was the Ausangate Lagoon, and after that — the Base Camp of Maria Peak — our first ascent in the Peruvian Andes. It was one of the most picturesque treks: herds of alpacas, snowy peaks, mountain rivers and endless steppes of the Southern Andes.

  Last night we launched an assault on Maria Peak. The ascent was not easy. Local guides decided to take a shortcut through a rocky pass, which turned out to be quite dangerous. But thanks to the experience of our super-guide Boris Egorov, we were able to safely pass through this pass and climb to the top.

  In the evening we went down to the hot springs in the village of Pakchanta, from where we went back to Cuzco.   Today we are flying to the cultural capital of Arequipa, where we will continue the program.

The guides Boris Egorov and Daria Sivova are in touch.
