Lyudmila Korobeshko, Director of the 7 Summits Club and group guide, from Mexico:

Greetings from Mexico from Lyudmila Korobeshko and the Nahui group. Today we saw amazing Mexico - we visited the main Catholic shrine of all Latin America - the Church of the Virgin of Guadalupe. The place is stunning in beauty and energy. And also visited the most famous pyramids of Mexico - Teotihuacan - pyramids of the Moon and Sun. Although this ancient city has been excavated by only 15%, the scale is amazing. From our guide to the historical places of Mexico - Natalia Pushkareva - we learned a lot of interesting things from the culture and history of Mexico. In the evening, we walked on our own through the dark streets of the center of Mexico City and - voila - we are alive, healthy and satisfied! Tomorrow we are going to the monarchs. What are the assumptions, what is it?

Lyudmila Korobeshko, director of the 7 Summits Club and group guide, from Mexico:

Greetings from Mexico from Lyudmila Korobeshko and the Nahui group! Yesterday we spent a hard night at the Orizaba Base Camp - a storm raged all night, the wind shook our tents. In the morning everything was covered with snow. And the snow continued to fall. A little sad, after lunch we went to the assault camp at 4700. The weather has not improved. The strong wind and snow continued. But the forecast promised a weakening of the wind and the end of precipitation after midnight. At one o'clock we woke up to the sounds of heavy snowfall.  We were sad, but we decided not to change our plans. At 2 am we went out to climb.  By 4 a.m., the snowfall had stopped. But not the wind. And the cold was terrible. Nevertheless, at 8 a.m. our team reached the top of the highest volcano in North America.

By lunchtime we were already in Zoapan, and now we are heading to Mexico City to continue the cultural program. Pyramids and butterflies are waiting for us.

Greetings from Mexico from Lyudmila Korobeshko and the group "Nahui"! After spending a stormy night in the wonderful Mexican town of Puebla, at 6 am we drove to the foot of La Malinche. By 13.00 we were already standing on the top of the volcano La Malinche (4440m). In the evening we went down and moved to the cozy hacienda of Soltepec next to the best pulqueria in the area (here they prepare pulque - braga from agave). Tomorrow we will move to Piedra Grande - the base camp on Orizaba.

Greetings from Mexico from Lyudmila Korobeshko and the team that changed its name! Yesterday we were called "Tacos", but today we were given a sign - in Cholula, an ice cream lady with this name (Tacos) crossed the road and stopped us. We had no choice but to accept the sign from above. And now we are a Nahui group. Today our group made the first ascent in Mexico to the lowest volcano in the world. This is the Koshkamate volcano with a height of 13 meters. We also visited the largest pyramid in the world - Cholula. Tomorrow we are going to climb on La Malinche (4200).

Lyudmila Korobeshko, Director of the 7 Summits Club and group guide, from Mexico:

Greetings from Mexico, from Lyudmila Korobeshko and a new group on Orizaba called "Tacos" (former "Cacas" on Kilimanjaro)! This morning, finally, the whole group came to Mexico City and we immediately went to explore this 36-million city.

In half a day we managed to explore the historical center of Mexico City, visit several churches, visit the largest cathedral in Latin America, found the house of Count Orizaba, visited the sculpture museum of the richest Mexican Carlos Slim, listened to the history of the conquest of Mexico by Cortez, refreshed the details of the struggle for independence, remembered the Mexican revolution, which almost coincided with ours. With some surprise, we recalled that about half of the current territory of the United States once belonged to Mexico. We listened to stories about the blood sacrifices of the Aztecs, learned the recipe for soup made from human flesh (yes, the Aztecs were also cannibals, like our good friends the Papuans).

At sunset, we went boating on the Xochimilco canals to the Mariachi songs.

Tomorrow we leave Mexico City and head to the largest pyramid in the world! Can you guess what it's called?

P.S. Many thanks to our wonderful guide to Mexico City - Natalia Pushkareva!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The group of the 7 Summits Club climbed one of the most grandiose rock face in the World in Mexico El Gigante

Boris Egorov, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Mexico:

Long-awaited news from Mexico. Yesterday at two o'clock in the afternoon our team climbed the last rope of the huge wall, it is called El Gigante.  It was an incredible adventure! Three and a half days of continuous vertical movement, three nights suspended on inflatable platforms. There were practically no places on our route where you could at least stand, they were hanging in safety systems all the time. The rock is very wild, there is no one around, we have not seen a soul during the entire ascent. But it turned out to be absolutely detached from everything in the world, there were only us, the wall and our multi-kilogram trunks, which we dragged up after us. There are only a few such ascents in the world, and even more so in such exotic places. (Even just to get under the wall, we needed local guides with machetes). Of course, this is not our first rock adventure with Alexey and Zhenya, but we are experiencing such difficulty and danger for the first time. And such an event will be all the more memorable. Guides Boris Egorov and Vladimir Murzaev.

The guide of the 7 Summits Club Lyubov Ivanova: Summit! On January 8th at 10:30 am we were at the top. The group left the glacier 5000 m at 7 am.  After 2.5 hours, everyone was on the top, the first Natasha Sklyar!  The descent from the summit was also made in record time: 2 hours from the top to the upper camp at 4650 m. I must say that the weather has been seriously scaring us all these days, and there was a snowfall (hail) and a thunderstorm in earnest. And not a very good forecast, even from the Oso itself, for the night of the ascent.  But our team went into battle without hesitation and doubt, and reached the top in the shortest possible time!  I recommend all participants without exception for further ascents with the 7 Summits Club.

Boris Egorov, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Mexico: 

And we continue to warm up on the rocks in the Northern part of Mexico. We came to El Potrero Chico precisely because there are a huge number of multi-pitches (long climbing routes).  And this is exactly what you need to work out the interaction on the wall and develop strength endurance.   Yesterday we quickly climbed a rather long route of 12 pitches. Alexey was in the lead all the way, and the guides only served the delays and enjoyed the views like tourists. After the descent, we decided to run to a small tower before the pile, it looks like we have a solid collection of such rock "spires". At this point, we believe that the preparation is over and we have a whole day of flights and transfers to get to the canyon with a big rock walls.

Hello everyone from Mexico! A new adventure has begun, prepared especially for Alexey Sivkov and Zhenya Lesnitsky. We were going to climb the big wall again, in an adult way, with overnight stays in suspended platforms and with huge trunks, which we ourselves will drag up on ropes. But we will have it all in a few days, and in the meantime we are warming up on the rocks of the El Potrero chico massif.

Hello everyone and Happy New Year from North America! A group of five participants is located somewhere in the vastness of Mexico on the way to the highest volcano on the continent - Orizaba Peak (5636 m). On the way to the volcanoes, they get to know Mexico, its culture, history and, of course, gastronomy. The guide Lyubov Ivanova, an expert on Mexico, an ethnographer and an expert on ancient Indian culture, helps them to immerse themselves in the culture of the country.

  The team members walked around the historic center of Mexico City and the colorful Santo Angel district. They walked through the streets of colonial Puebla, the capital of the eponymous state of Mexico. And of course, they visited the largest pyramid in the world, Cholula. This pyramid with a cathedral on top against the background of volcanoes is one of the most photographed places in Mexico.
