  Mt. Everest 2005: 7 Summits Club Summits Everest


 

Update: Hello EverestNews.com: Today,  May, 30, seven Members and six high-altitude porters (Sherpas) from  the  7  Summits Club expedition successful climbed the summit of Mount  Everest. The first, about 7 mornings, has risen Karo Ovasapian, in  half  an  hour - Alexander Jakovenko, behind him - Nikolay Cherny. Then  Igor  Pohvalin  from  Crimea.  Jury  Tajdakov, Ivan Dusharin and Grigory  Skaller  have risen a bit later. Six Sherpas have reached the top  witn his members, led by Sirdar Mingma (at him it is 4th ascent).

We  would  like  to  note Nikolay Cherny success, first time trying to make  an ascent during the first Soviet Everest expedition in 1982. We congratulate  him  ! We are proud to be his partners and we note, that the  success  was  held  in  our expedition. Now on the high slopes of Everest   the  weather  has  deteriorated,  but  to  this  moment  all participants  of  an  ascent  have gone down in camp at height of 8300 meters.  The  majority  of  them will spend the night there. Only Каrо together  with  his  individual  Sherpa has decided to go down in АВС. Tomorrow the second group will climb from 7700 m up to 8300 meters. As well as it was planned, in it there will be 12 person.

Update: Alexander Abramov by the phone from camp ABC  (6500meters). 

The weather forecast  is constantly displaced for 1-2 days. Still yesterday it seemed to us, that June, 1 there will be a good weather. Under today's forecasts it is clear, that June, 1 there will be not a best day for an ascent. The best conditions will be June, 2-3. But it is already impossible to choose. We hear last days constantly: that good weather, bad …. Now the first group led by Nikolay Сherny  is at camp of 7700 meters. They  inform, that the strong wind blows. The wind tears tents while, fortunately, has not broken off. What the second team will  to do tomorrow, finally have not decided. But we hope, that we shall go upwards under the plan. We plan to leave right after breakfast. Today there was a general meeting, we have discussed all details,  have agreed  cooperation with Sherpas.

Yesterday  one or two Japanese with two Sherpas have successfully climbed Everest. Today one Japanese climber has gone down in АВС, his nose is black color,  it is frost-bitten. Tomorrow  many expeditions will start from ABC camp with us. Wait for next messages ….

Group 1: James Wilde, Karo Ovasapyan, Alexander Jakovenko, Igor Pohvalin, Grigory Skaller, Ivan Dusharin, Jury Tajdakov.

Group  2: Dmitry Moskalev, Lorenzo Gariano, Natan Schneider, Harm Kikstra, John Christiana, Robert Ulf..

The leader of the 7 Summits Club expedition: Alex Abramov.
