 Seven Summits Club –  RECEPTION In the RUSSIAN EMBASSY...


 

RECEPTION In the RUSSIAN EMBASSY...

Before departure in Tibet our expedition has visited the Russian Embassy in Nepal. We were invited in Apartments of the Ambassador of Russia in Nepal Andrey Trofimov. An interesting conversation was held. Valery Babanov and Sergey Kofanov also were present at the meeting. In few days they will start for a new route on the North Face of Jannu.

September, 16.

Today at night, the team has moved from Zhangmu to a small town of Nialam (3600м), situated in gorge among high mountains. The way passes by a bad road heavy loaded by lorries. Now the road is under repair for Olympiad. After breakfast we have gone on an acclimatization climb on the nearest summit (under the name Murat) 4100 м high.

The strong wind blew all the way up and at the top the rain has started. Having gone down to Nialam, all members of team have intimately congratulated Marat. It was the first climbed summit in his life. Tomorrow we will go to Shigar, which is located at height 4200 meters.

Today in the morning we have said goodbye to ours Sherpas which have gone by two lorries forward to establish Base camp at height 5100м. Best regards from Nialam. Alex Abramov

A cold weather, high altitude double boot for extreme conditions The Olympus Mons is the perfect choice for 8000-meter peaks. This super lightweight double boot has a PE thermal insulating inner boot that is coupled with a thermo-reflective outer boot with an integrated gaiter.
