  Everest 2007:  Alexander Abramov 7 Summits Club The big meeting already!


The significant part of work on preparation of expedition was executed even before arrival of the leader in Nepal. For two days, March, 23-24 many necessary packages were bought additionally. March, 25 the group of 8 Sherpas with the big cargo has gone by lorries to the base camp. They should begin an installation of base camp, and then camps on a slope of mountain.

The politic situation in Katmandu is quite normal. Though in Nepal as a whole from time to time there are cases of violence. One more problem is a shortage of gasoline. Our team on motorcycles should go from Lhasa to Katmandu. However, we are now with motorcycles in Katmandu and we can not go because of shortage of gasoline. It also is connected with disorders on the border of Nepal and India.

March, 27 Russell Brice has arrived in Katmandu. The meeting of leaders of expeditions to the Everest was held this very day. March, 28 consultations will be continued. The question is payment of works on the equipment of a route with fix ropes. While there is no agreement on this question.

Everest 2007: Alexander Abramov and his 7 Summits Club expedition returns to Everest in 2007. Alex, unlike other low budget expeditions, brings a very large Sherpa team to the mountain. The expedition is expected to attempt the North side of Everest again. His Everest 2006 was heavily promoted by some as the the "$10000 expedition", but clients died....  Alex who works closely with the other big commercial expeditions has had mixed results on Everest with a large number of Summits but also deaths.  Alex by all accounts is a nice fellow... Stay tuned for Everest 2007...

Hundreds of other climbers are expected to attempt Everest again this year...
