 On March 28, the staff and friends of the 7 Summits Club and the 8000 Club summed up the results of the last season at the Winter 2024 After Party. We talked about our achievements over the past six months in Antarctica and South America. Those who closed the "Seven Psummits" and "Seven Volcanoes" programs over the past year were awarded.

And then we met the onset of a new season of climbing and trekking. Our climbing teams on Everest (two groups), Dhaulagiri, Lhotse and Kanchenjunga were solemnly conducted! Thanks to everyone who came and shared this little holiday with us!

A ski trip to the South Pole has just ended and here are 2 new teams now in Antarctica. The Vinson Mountain team will climb the highest peak in Antarctica. This is the key to the Seven Summits project. The ascent will be led by guides Artyom Rostovtsev and Tomasz Kobelski from Poland. There are 6 participants and 2 guides in the group. And the team went to Sidley Volcano, the highest volcano in Antarctica . This is the key to the Seven Volcanoes project. The team consists of 8 participants led by Lyudmila Korobeshko and American guide Larry Holmgren. In total, 8 people have conquered the "Seven volcanoes" in Russia at the moment. 6 more people will be added in case of luck after the expedition to Sidley Volcano. Good luck!
Alex Abramov from Aconcagua Base Camp, where this year the 7 Summits Club has six groups from the beginning of December to the end of February. We are the best!

A team of managers and guides of the 7 Summits Club has completed a corporate trip to Dagestan. Those were unforgettable days!

We spent the night from October 13 to October 14 at the Khvaltish Hotel at an altitude of 1613 meters. It is located on the shore of the Gergebil reservoir. So far, only the first steps have been taken here to improve this promising place. We had dinner and breakfast in glamping dome tents near the hotel. There's nothing wrong with the food here. In the evening we were pleased with dancing by our friends! And in the morning there was exercise, breakfast with coffee and a long journey... Dagestan is bigger than you think. This picturesque, hospitable republic largely consists of objects of interest to tourists. You can spend a month here, but you won't see everything. This is true. But we simply did not consider it possible to ignore the oldest city of the Russian Federation, the millennial Derbent. Of course, the walls erected in the sixth century are impressive. Yes, indeed. We had a wonderful guide who courageously coped with a large group surrounded by hundreds of other tourists. At the end we had a very hearty meat lunch with fragrant local wine. And back to the buses – to the airport…

There we said goodbye to our Dagestani friends. I really want to see them again and visit Dagestan again.

The highest point of the Gunib district is the Mayak (Lighthouse) Mountain with a height of 2,352 meters. Today our team passed the traverse of the massif, visiting the famous Gunib tunnel on the descent. It was punched specifically for the passage of Emperor Alexander II in the 60s of the XIX century.  As a result, we got about 20 kilometers with a height difference of up to 1 kilometer. The weather was great, everyone in the group walked at a different pace, but steadily. We admired the grandiose views of mountainous Dagestan, saw soaring eagles under us. Many thanks to the local guys who accompanied us and showed us the right way! All the participants of this climb were just happy with how they spent that day!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The second day of the trip of the team of employees of the 7 Summits Club turned out to be great. We went up to the historical village of Gamsutl, had lunch in Chokh, looked through the eyes of Aivazovsky and plunged into the waterfall

On this day, we were accompanied by beautiful weather. After high-quality morning exercises (thanks to the guide Evgeny Fedyunin) and breakfast, we went on an excursion to the abandoned village of Gamsutl. A wonderful path led us to the ... read more

On this day, we were accompanied by beautiful weather.  After high-quality morning exercises (thanks to the guide Evgeny Fedyunin) and breakfast, we went on an excursion to the abandoned village of Gamsutl. A wonderful path led us to the ruins of a once large settlement. For lunch we moved to the modern village of Choh. Then we visited the observation point, from which the artist Aivazovsky painted the famous panorama. And a visit to the Saltinsky Waterfall. Local canyoning was quite a worthy end of the day. Thanks to our Dagestan partners, the organizers of the tour! Thanks to all the participants!

The presentation of Lyudmila Korobeshko's book "The Height Gene 2.0: A Woman's View" will also take place as part of the evening. There was a lot of communication, pleasant meetings and acquaintances. Well, we had fun, too. See the photos, look for yourself! And those who were not with us, envy! It is rare where you can meet so many positive people.

Kristina Putintseva, guide and manager of the 7 Summits Club:

The 7 Summits Club welcomes guests from Nepal. Our old friends and partners Pemba Nurbu and Kippa Lhamu have arrived in Russia to take a mountaineering instructor training course. Every year, the Russian Mountaineering Federation organizes a school of mountaineering instructors on the basis of the Bezengi mountaineering camp.  The guests arrived in Moscow on May 27, and on May 28 we admired the beauties and sights of our capital.

And on the morning of May 29, we went to the airport and made a long journey from Moscow to Nalchik, and then to the Bezengi alpine camp. On the way we visited beautiful Blue Lakes.  While driving, we admired the endless green hills and then the snowy Summits.

At the camp, we talked with the instructors, remembered the joint Himalayan ascents, resolved organizational issues, and discussed our joint plans for the next month.

Greetings from Alex Abramov and Luda Korobeshko from the USA!

Simultaneously with active preparations for Everest, Makalu and K2, we are also preparing for a large-scale season in Antarctica 2023-2024. This week we met with our partners for Antarctica (ALE). We specially flew to this meeting in Salt Lake City. And we have just incredible news!

 A very large and unusual season in Antarctica is planned. In addition to our standard programs "Ascent to the highest peak of Antarctica Vinson" and expeditions to the South Pole "Last Degree", this time we will have two large groups to the highest volcano in Antarctica — Sidley.

The 7 Summits Club is the first and only company in Russia that started 20 years ago and annually organizes ascents in Antarctica on the Vinson Massif as part of the Seven Summits project and to Sidley as part of the Seven Volcanoes project.

Usually, only 8 people per year are allowed to climb Mount Sidley from all over the world.  But thanks to successful negotiations, we will have two big groups in the 2024 season!

Join us!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 7 Summits Club honored the climbers of Mount Everest and the "Seven Summits" at the Gala Evening of the Russian Mountaineering Federation

On November 26, the regular, annual Gala Evening of summing up the results of the year of the Russian Mountaineering Federation took place. In its preparation and conduct, the 7 Summits Club was a key organization. For many years of holding such events, the Illusion cinema seemed to be the most suitable, the most cozy and hospitable place. The only, but important minus – there were not enough seats. And for the rest, it turned out to be a very sincere and festive meeting of friends, veterans and youth, masters and beginners, athletes and amateurs. I think all the participants received a good charge of energy, and returned home with renewed vigor, with new plans and hopes. But with more optimism. Thanks to the federation, thank you to us, the 7 Summits Club.

An important part of the program was honoring climbers of Mount Everest in 2022. The 7 Summits Club has established a special award - the order, which is awarded to climbers who have climbed the highest peak in the World for the first time. At this evening, 12 people received it. The President of the 7 Summits Club, Alexander Abramov, also presented several climbers with another award, which he also invented himself. This is the order of the "Climber to the Seven Summits". At this gala evening, it was received by several climbers who could not attend the first presentation of this award in June this year.

The corporative tour of the guides and managers of the 7 Summits Club to Arkhyz turned out to be extremely successful in terms of the weather. Like the day before, today was sunny, warm unseasonably. We just returned to summer and got full satisfaction from a long, tedious and fabulously beautiful route.  In turn, all the lakes of the Sofia necklace - the emerald pearls of Arkhyz were visited. Thanks to our wonderful guides Evgeny Fedyunin and Dmitry Semenov! Thanks to everyone who drove and waited for us!  Our journey took seven and a half hours and ended just after dark. It was the right thing! On all agenda items…

Successful travel always ends with new plans, which are born at the end of the trip and then issued at home. Alexander Abramov and Fyodor Konyukhov had barely returned from Iran, after a wonderful ascent to the highest peak of the country, the volcano Damavand, when they met again. 

Alexander Abramov: "In The Workshop of Fyodor Konyukhov. We were planning new trips. And new climbing in Antarctica."

 The formation of groups to Antarctica is coming to an end, but you can still have time to join our groups of the 2022/2023 season. Programs and details on the website. The ice continent is real space!

  Yesterday, a big meeting of friends of the 7 Summits Club took place in the lecture hall of the Sports Marathon Travelers Club.  The program included the presentation of Alexander Abramov's book "The Height-Altitude  Gene" and the first ever presentation of orders “Seven Summits”.  The hall was crowded, and everyone showed great interest in what was happening "on stage".  The procedure for awarding orders has turned into a solemn presentation of outstanding personalities, such are the heroes, the climbers of all "Seven Summits".   

 The Order of the Seven Summits is an honorary award to climbers who have climbed the highest peaks of all seven continents of our planet. In total, there are almost half a thousand people who have completed it.  There are already about fifty of them in the list of Russians. The first number in it is the famous Russian traveler Fyodor Konyukhov, who completed the program back in 1997.

  The presentation of the badge of honor, which is called the order, is a long-standing idea of the president of the 7 Summits Club company, Alexander Abramov, who, by the way, has already completed the program three times. Finally, the idea that the climbers of the "SevenSummits" are worthy of a separate award has been brought to life.  And the heroes who have passed through all continents, climbed to their highest peaks, received a beautiful order!  The 7 Summits Club plans to make the solemn procedure of awarding the Seven Summits Orders traditional. After all, the award can only be received in person, not everyone could be in Moscow that evening. Well, we are waiting for new heroes, the mountains are calling and waiting for us!

Abramov Alexander: The High Altitudet Gene. The frank story of a ten-time Everest climber"

Alexander Abramov - Master of Sports of the USSR, founder of the 7 summits Club, one of the most famous climbers in the world and the first Russian climber who twice completed the Seven summits program!

In 2015-2016, Alexander led an expedition to Everest and took part in the filming of Valdis Pelsh's film "High Altitude Gene, or How to get on Everest", in which he and his team showed the whole process of climbing to the main peak of the world.

 Here is an exciting biography, which consists of five amazing parts, in each of the chapters the author tells about his journey from the very beginning - from initiation into mountaineers and conquering Elbrus by car to the race for the leadership with Fyodor Konyukhov and creating the strongest team in the field of extreme climbing!

 

 

Annotation

Biography of Alexander Abramov — one the most famous climber in Russia, who twice completed the "Seven Summits" program and made about 500 ascents of varying difficulty in dozens of countries, including 10 ascents on Mount Everest.

Quotes

The climbers were always ready to help each other. You come to someone, say: guys, the food is over – I didn't calculate, the burner broke or something else happened - they will definitely help you – I didn't even think that it could be otherwise ...

The mountain can punish for carelessness, overestimation of their own strength or an incorrect assessment of the situation.

In general, you need to go to Everest only if you have realized for yourself that this ascent is more important to you than your life itself. A person should clearly understand for himself: there is a very high risk of not going down on Everest.

The group of the 7 Summits Club began work in the Elbrus region on a training program with climbing Elbrus

Alexey Lonchinsky, guide of the 7 Summits Club from the Elbrus region:  Good afternoon! News from the winter Elbrus! Yesterday, participants of the training courses for Everest, Denali, Antarctica came up to us.  This time the program includes climbing Elbrus. Today there was great weather, bright sun and calm. We moved away from the Cheget clearing down the Donguzorun River. And in an excellent, sunny glade, classes were held on the device of a bivouac and cooking in the field. Bottom line: snowshoes fall into the snow less when they are dressed on feet. Sledges ride well on snow if they are oriented with a sliding surface to the ground. Actually, we could not learn or discover anything particularly new. But during classes we could observe great views!  Your Andrey Berezin and Alexey Lonchinsky, instructors and guides of the group.

At the initiative of the President of the 7 Summits Club, a member of the FAR Board, Alexander Abramov, the ceremony of awarding the honorary badge "Summiter of Everest" is taking place at this event. It is awarded to climbers who have climbed the highest peak in the World for the first time.  The main theme of the evening will, of course, be the sporting achievements of the leading Russian climbers. But at the same time, the most important thing will remain friendly communication, the opportunity to meet old friends and see with your own eyes the stars of mountaineering past and present.

Yesterday, the 7 Summits Club welcomed our friends famous explorer Fyodor Konyukhov and his son Oscar Konyukhov. And we have now amazing news! In August, Fyodor goes on Kazbek with our 7 Summits Club and with his friends. You can join, but upon prior request. Vladimir Kotlyar has already applied for the role of a guide in this group and has been previously approved.

We discussed the possible participation of the Russian team under the leadership of Fyodor Konyukhov in the Jules Verne Cup (the fastest prestigious sailing race, you need to go around the World in less than 80 days). We will jointly look for finances and assemble a team.

Fyodor blessed Volodya Kotlyar and Alex Abramov for the fulfillment of the project "14 eight-thousandth". He believes that this project is very important for raising the prestige of Russia. After all, no Russian climber has done this project yet. Sergey Bogomolov is the closest (13 out of 14). Everyone got a tremendous boost of energy. Fyodor Konyukhov is very inspiring!

And also we received an invitation to the exhibition of paintings by Fyodor Konyukhov "Journey of a Lifetime" from February 3 at the Zurab Tsereteli Gallery.

 Having climbed the summit of the Vinson Massif, Lyudmila Korobeshko fulfilled the norm of the "Seven Summits" program for the third time, ascents on the highest peaks of all continents.   Actually, not even two times has any woman in the world done it. So the advantage in this game of the director of the 7 Summits Club  is absolute!  And there are only a few men with such an achievement. Let's add two poles on skis, two more eight-thousand-meter Cho-Oyo and Manaslu, seven-thousand-meters peaks, six of the seven volcanoes, Mount Kosciusko, climbing and trekking around the world. And the management of the company and the family. At the same time, natural beauty and intelligence, the ability to learn, charm, a unique husband and a talented son.

Lyuda is a real hero of Russia!  She is worthy of the memory of her grandfather, the Hero of the Great Patriotic War Miron Korobeshko!

We are proud of you! Your 7 Summits Club.
