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.

The 7 Summits Club takes an active part in the activities of the Russian Mountaineering Federation (FAR).  In particular, we participate in the organization of traditional summing up evenings of the year. 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.

The highest peak of Karakoram, the second highest mountain in the World, the majestic K2 is one of the most desirable climbing goal for climbers. The difficulty and high risks of routes, the unpredictability of the weather, the history full of tragic pages – all this excites, but also attracts. And to be the first to reach the summit in winter means to enter the history of mountaineering. Isn't this a worthy goal? The 7 Summits Club and RD Studio initiated a large PROJECT WINTER K2  2021/2022 that will unite the efforts of mountaineers from four countries at once.

 The main goal of the project is to solve the "last problem" of high – altitude mountaineering, the first ever winter ascent of K2. It should take place in the next winter season - 2021/2022.

We invite climbers from Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Ukraine to join our team.

Project leader: President of the 7 Summits Club Alexander Abramov.

Head coach: Pavel Shabalin.

Deputy leader - Vladimir Suviga (Kazakhstan).

 

 

 

In the winter of 2020/2021, we plan a joint winter training camp on Elbrus in order to meet and select the main team.

In the summer of 2021, we plan training ascents on K2 along two routes as part of a large expedition of 32 climbers from 4 countries. The climbs will take place, among other things, in order to choose the most suitable route for winter.

In the winter of 2021/2022, an attempt to climb K2 will be made, in which 16 main and 8 reserve members will take part.

In fact, the Nepalese leadership has different opinions about quarantine measures, and it is possible that we will receive encouraging news from Kathmandu in the near future. There are already exceptions to the rules (the Qatari expedition on Manaslu) and we hope that our authority earned over the years will allow us to claim for the same as well. Now the 7 Summits Club is actively negotiating with the Embassy of Nepal in Russia to get permission to organize an expedition on Manaslu. We are also waiting for the borders to open in October and still recruiting groups for trekking programs. Stay with us and stay optimistic!

Last weekend, the leaders of the 7 Summits Club Alexander Abramov and Lyudmila Korobeshko visited the village of Fyodor Konyukhov. They were invited as guests of honor at an open-air meeting of the Directors' Club (Association of Independent Directors) held there. The friendship with the outstanding Russian traveler and his family began with the acquaintance of Alexander Abramov and Fyodor Konyukhov back in the 90s. It became stronger after climbing Mount Everest together in 2012. And now we have started a new joint project with Fyodor Konyukhov. As may be you know, he was the first in Russia who managed to finish the Seven Summits program.  And now Fyodor is trying to climb all highest peaks of continents by second time. Already re-climbed Everest, Kilimanjaro and Elbrus, next – Aconcagua with the Russian camp of the 7 Summits Club. But that's not all, in 2021, we planned to realize his old dream – climb the biblical Mount of Ararat. Alex Abramov, who recently returned from climbing this mountain, brought and solemnly handed Fyodor Konyukhov stones from the top of Ararat.

 

 

By the way, you can climb Ararat with Alexander Abramov this year. The new expedition under his leadership will start on September 12.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A gift from Yulia Demina, an artist who paints mountains

On July 25, 2020, as part of a large group of the 7 Summits Club, a young artist Yulia Demina ascended to the top of Mount Elbus under the "Blitz" program. The mountain theme is one of the leading themes in her work, which is not ... read more

25 июля 2020 года в составе большой группы Клуба 7 вершин юная художница Юлия Демина совершила восхождение на вершину Эльбуса по программе «Блиц». Горная тема - одна из ведущих в ее творчестве, что неудивительно, ведь она опытная спортсменка, чемпионка России по горному туризму. Свежие виды на горы Кавказа вдохновили ее на новый цикл работ. Некоторые из них она сделала прямо у убежища перед штурмом вершины. Юлия отдала их своим товарищам по скалолазанию. А теперь она приготовила подарок убежищу «Национальный парк».

 On July 25, the President of the 7 Summits Club, Alexander Abramov, climbed to the top of Mount Elbrus for the hundredth time. He carried out the ascent together with his wife Lyudmila Korobeshko and a group called "4x4", which successfully implemented the program of blitz climb. A hundred or more times on the highest point of Europe and Russia have made by some local guides. But they were all professional guides of Elbrus. Our President can be called that, but it is still not his most important occupation. Alexander can be proud of this achievement! And we are proud with him.

 Our congratulations! We wish you to make the second hundred by your own centenary!

Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club:

Let's not lose heart, and not think that life is over.

The panic will end, and life goes on.

Love and take care of your loved ones, friends, partners and customers.

 

 

Russia has experienced many shocks. This is one of them.

Not the first and not the last. You have to be strong and look at everything calmly.

Close the borders -  will open.

People get sick - get well.

By and large, this is panic. World panic.

 

My mountain life is full of shocks. And it taught me to stay calm in any, absolutely any situation. Moreover - find the pros in any cons.

As you know, “minus to minus gives plus”.

 

We love ourselves and love the mountains. The mountains give us energy and an unforgettable experience. Mountains harden us, strengthen our body and psyche, mountains teach us to live and be friends, to help a friend. Mountains test people and human relationships for strength. "Mountaineering is the courage of a nation."

 

It will take 2-3 months and everything will work out. We will go to the mountains again. The mountains stood for millions of years and still stand.

 

The 7 Summits Club is preparing for the summer, for the fall. And even in the spring we are not going to lose heart.

 

Now the mountains of Russia are open to us.

Crimea, Caucasus, Altai, Sayans, Kamchatka and many more areas. We have a perspective. Let's live on! Let's live!

 

All spring we will climb the Crimean rocks.

All summer we will climb the Caucasus, Elbrus, Kazbek from the Russian side. Altai - Belukha. Sayans. Kamchatka volcanoes.

We have many mountains in Russia.

Let's discover Russia!
