Boris Egorov, the super-guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Papua New Guinea:
News from Papua. Hurray! This morning, at a leisurely pace , all the participants, fathers and children, ascended the highest volcano in Australia and Oceania, Giluwe 4368. We slipped between the showers, although we still got into a cloud at the top. For the youngest participant Mark (16 years old) it was the debut, the first mountain. It was not easy for him, but the achievement is all the more valuable. We also celebrate Dima Tertychny's birthday today. In the morning he stood at the summit, and in the evening he blew out the candles in the lodge! Tomorrow the cultural program begins, we are going to explore the life of local tribes.
