  • Greetings from tha lowlands
    • The 7 summits pages

A lot of events. First, we have gone down from Intermediate camp, having spent a night on 5800м. We all are alive and healthy. Night has passed almost without any problem. Only one of yaks has lain near tent where Sergey Batura was slept. And Sergey was forced to try to get it away all night using a thermos, but at daybreak he has decided, that with yak is even warmer.

Second, when we have gone down in BC, we were met by doctor Andrey Selivanov, guide Sergey Kofanov and Armen Rshtuni. Sergey feels quite normally after his illness.

Third, well-known climbers from Kazakhstan Vasily Pivtsov and Maxud Jumaev came to us on a visit. They already have 10 eightthousanders without oxygen. Now they are going to climb Everest, also without oxygen and very quick (as soon as possible). And in June they already want to leave on К-2.

Fourthly, we have started to mark Day of Astronautics since morning, and then Birthday of our comrade Ilya Gruzdeva. He will gather our team to climb Everest next year. Now a tennis match between Kazakhs and Russians goes in sports tent.
About results - in the following message.

  • Dream it, envision it and then live it.

Nice report and photos. The tablecloths used on the tables in the mess tent at BC are definitely better than the one used in 2005! I believe that one was plaid with pink!  ;)

Wishing them well,
