The ascent is completed and the team returns home. All are alive and well. On August 12, a team of 7 participants and 3 guides climbed one of the most beautiful mountains in the world – Alpamayo. This peak is part of our 7SuperMountains program, which we invite you to join.

Technical climbs

Climbing is beautiful in many ways. We can climb the simplest peaks and be content with that. But if you have the strength, courage and strength of mind, then why not test yourself on serious ascents? After all, climbing a difficult route to peaks that not everyone can reach is a special pleasure. And to collect a collection of ascents to the most beautiful peaks of the continents is a worthy goal for many years! A few years ago, the 7 Peaks Club identified the “magnificent seven” of the most beautiful, hard-to-reach peaks of the continents. It includes such amazingly beautiful mountains as the Matterhorn, Ama Dablam, Alpamayo, El Capitan, Cook Peak, Mount Kenya and Ulvetanna. However, practice has shown that on each of the continents there are worthy rivals for these famous mountains, perhaps less famous and beautiful, but also attractive to our climbers. In addition, technical climbing must be learned and you need to start with simpler mountains. And we decided not to limit the list of peaks, but simply to open the project “Technical ascents with guides of the 7 Peaks Club”. Staff guides of the 7 Summits Club, working on technical mountaineering programs, are highly qualified. Aleksey Lonchinsky was the owner of the Golden Ice Ax on a global scale, that is, this can be equated with the title of “world champion”. Boris Egorov and Alexander Lastochkin are masters of sports with experience in the most difficult ascents on different continents. Our guides are a guarantee of safety, it is an increase in the chances of success, it is training in the skills necessary for climbing. They are also fun-loving, optimistically charged travel companions who will do everything to make your trip a success in every way. The 7 Summits Club also works with local guides as part of the Gornyashka project programs. For example, members of the 7 Peaks Club sometimes climb the legendary peak of Ama Dablam accompanied only by local Sherpa guides. Everything is possible!
