A guide of the 7 Summits Club Sergey Avtomonov reports from Nepal:

 Greetings to all from the slopes of Mount Lobuche!  We had no communication while we were in the assault camp. In the morning, we left the village of Lobuche and went up to the assault camp in three hours. The weather turned bad there, and we held training sessions in a tent under the snow! We rested before going out. At midnight we had breakfast and went up. Due to the snowfall, the road was very slippery and heavy. By dawn it got better, we went to the beginning of the ropes and ice. We put on the crampons and started climbing the ropes. As a result, we climbed to the top in 9 hours. Then we had a long descent to the Lobuche Lodge. We didn't get there until 9 p.m. And now we have gone down to Lukla by helicopter and are waiting for a flight to Kathmandu.
