A diary of events on Everest from the 7 Summits Trek team!
The team of the 7 Summits Club Everest-22 have climbed to Camp-1. The second acclimatization rotation has begun.
Olga Rumyantseva: Today we got up at two o’clock in the morning and again climbed into the first camp through the Khumbu icefall. Well, what? We did it. But for a while there was such a terrible heat that everyone swam. Therefore, the second icefall cross turned out to be physically not easier, but even more difficult. Tomorrow we will go to the second camp.
Artem Rostovtsev, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Nepal:
Greetings to all from the group “Touching Everest”! We touched Everest very well today. It was both cold and hot. The team admitted that it was not easy, but very informative. We got a great experience for future ascents. Tried additional oxygen. All the participants have already gone down to the camp-2, tomorrow morning we are going down to the base camp.
Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club, from Nepal:
Over the past two days, the group “Touching Everest” has climbed from the base camp to the second high-altitude camp at an altitude of 6400m. Everyone passed the baptism of the Khumbu icefall steadfastly, they were almost not afraid. The move from the first high-altitude camp to the second was planned with the support of additional oxygen, but the group decided to test themselves and pass it without doping. We coped perfectly, although in the first part of the route strong gusts of wind were a little disturbing. Tonight, the participants will have the opportunity to restore their strength with oxygen before tomorrow’s decisive exit to 7100 m.
