Alexander Abramov, leader of the Everest expedition of 7 summits Club:

I want to introduce Dima Tertychnyy -  a member of the 7 Summits Club expedition who in his 17 years already climbed 6 from 7 summits and now goes to Everest. He can become the youngest Russian and European to accomplish this feat.

 

 

Dmitry (Dima) Tertychnyy:  I am finishing the 7 summits program. (The 7 summits program includes the highest mountain of each continent). Throughout the whole history there are not more than 600 people who have finished this program. Occasionally, my last summit of this program is the Mother of mountains (Mt Everest) 8848m. To make it more interesting, I will mention George Mallory, who was the first man to attempt to summit Mt Everest in 1923. He died and his body is still lying at the height of 8600m. At the moment I am studying at Charterhouse School, George Mallory was a teacher here and his last dinner before the expedition was at Charterhouse. Together with my school we decided to dedicate this ascent to development of education in Nepal. We are doing this with the help of Global Action Nepal. GAN is an non-governmental organization which is working to improve access to, and the quality of education for poor and marginalized people in Nepal. If anyone wants to know more, you could visit their website.

 Not everybody has access to education in the 21st century. Our goal is to raise 10.000 pounds. At the moment we managed to raise 1100 pounds. I will be thankful to each person, who will decide to participate in this project. This is the link for participating:

Dmitry Ermakov, a guide of the 7 Summits Club:

Expedition Everest 2018. Day 5. Yet the most memorable day of the expedition. But first things first. In the morning we woke up, ate, were going to go the airport. But Alex Abramov said that at the airport there was an  accident, the plane either rolled out of the lane, or broke the chassis and now all flights are postponed. But we decided to try the chance, went to the airport. This is a Zombieland simply, several thousands of people, there is no information. We went back to the hotel. Once we arrived at the hotel - it is reported that it seems to have opened the airport, we are back there. Wild queues everywhere, at the entrance, at check-in to passport control. As a result, after going through all the circles of the airport, were in a waiting room. Planes fly, but our flight is delayed. And we were waiting 4 hours in a row. But finally around 5pm we arrived in Lhasa. Everyone is happy, in a pleasant shock from the hotel. And there we met our first band again. Crouch and sleep…

Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club: Lhasa – a city of one million at the height of 3700 m. The last 10 years, the city adds something like 50 thousand people annually. All the newcomers are Chinese. The infrastructure is ready to accommodate 1.5 times more, and they do not stop there - they are being built and improved.

 As a benefit, there is a new useful health and time of deployment. The platform in the sphere of interest was quickly found, acclimatization is only to help, several times were able to work with your hands against gravity.

Tomorrow morning we allowed ourselves to run before a long running break, but a little, 20 minutes, and not fast. Still, the height is about 3700 m.

A whole army of our Sherpas, local guides, high-altitude porter, cooks and their assistants received new sets of clothes made by Red Fox. It is a proper form for working in severe high altitude conditions. Judging by their faces, the new things suited to taste. Beautiful clothes oblige to good work, so we believe.

 Alexander Abramov, President of Club 7 Vershin, leader of the expedition to Everest:

 This year we are making a more comfortable base camp – Luxury Camp, as we call it. We deliver and put new spacious tents with beds, heaters and a work table.

This year we have 20 participants, 7 guides and 6 cooks. And 35 Sherpas. We have the largest expedition on Everest in 2018.
