Artem Rostovtsev, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Nepal:

The team "Touching Everest" reached the base camp. We spent the previous two nights in the town of Lobuche, recovering from a vigorous climb. Which was not superfluous at all. Now at the base camp we are preparing for the main event – the "touch" itself. Today we held rope classes on the ice, we felt confident, tomorrow we will repeat and fix it. And then – into the icefall!
