Alexander Abramov, head of the Everest expedition:
Our teams take turns climbing to the advanced base camp at 64000m. We breathe oxygen the first night.
Weather is good. It snows every afternoon. There are already 3 groups of Sergey Kovalev, Volodya Kotlyar, Alexander Abramov and Andrey Mariev. The fourth group will be here tomorrow. It's snowing, it's cold, but we have a great dining room tent with heaters. Now it comfortably accommodates 24 people.
