“I am a simple Indian guy,” Parmedar tells me, “And I want to go to the top, let the Indians know how it is and what everyone can do.” “You don’t know, my friend, how much I am proud of you and your decision to go to the summit!” - I reply to my old Indian friend. We met with Parmedar in 2011, he saved my life. Many famous travelers of past centuries died from dysentery and dehydration. So I get some kind of cruel Indian infection and almost died of dehydration and powerlessness. If you want more details, I could not even crawl to the toilet, it was so serious.
Since then, Dr. Sinh had become our family doctor, and during 8 years in India he was taking care of my friends and people close to me. In his clinic they sewed a pierced my Father’s head after bike falling, and once my mother had an operation controled by our family doctor.
A week ago, Parmedar called me and said that he was looking for tickets to Elbrus, and he wanted to join the nearest group. How much I am delighted to know that in the 8 years of friendship he finally will travel with our team! Friends are always like that, they sway for a very long time, and when they want something new and as great as possible, they recall the trials on Elbrus, which my friends somehow watch in social networks. And here - a simple Indian guy, as he calls himself, our family doctor, at his incomplete 40 y.o. and not seeing snow for 17 years (Parmedar studied in Russia, he has a Russian wife and two wonderful daughters) goes to Elbrus.
Of course, I called a friend on a fitness tour, without adventures and overloads, to touch the beautiful, to see this miracle they came with his wife. But Doc called me yesterday and said he wanted to go to the top. The team of Parmedar is led by the strongest of our guides, Andrei, Zhenya and Nadya. I called Andryukha, to ask how our Indian friend walks, and all my doubts were dispelled.
Today, after the first night in the second base camp, serious tests began. The whole group got into a blizzard, and not just a blizzard but a storm storm at an altitude of 4600m. Who was on Pastukhov Rocks in such weather, understands what it means. 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻
Try-angle those triangles 📐and even midget legs can strangle 🔥
Mount escape - 2 on 1 grip butterfly - leg pummel to trap triangle - head control and scoop leg for angle.
Yes, she could have locked the fig.4 deeper with the spare hand, but with that angle the shoulder is outside the triangle, so even half locked can easily finish.
Случайно, заехав за травяным чаем на Поляну Чегет, я была поражена возникшей, казалось бы из ниоткуда, радуге - да еще и полной!!😃🌈 Радуга была настолько близко, что даже не верилось, что она реальна ✨Такая красота в горах, аж дух захватывает! 😍🏔💙💚💛🧡❤️💜💖
The Summit to Uhuru Peak - Part 2
▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️ ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️ After about 6 hours we reached Stella Point, which marked the end of the steep incline. From here the scenery changed dramatically to a blindingly bright landscape level with the clouds. Although the ground was almost flat - this was arguably the hardest part of the climb. The air was so thin that after five steps I’d be winded like I’d just run a mile. ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️
