He started early morning at ..., he summited at ... He had load of 9 kg. He worn sneakers at the beginning and switched to unloaded plastic boots in higher altitude. He climbed alone, nobody was helping him with food or fluid or in any other respect.
The achievement was reported on 12.8. to Alexandr Anatolyevich Gerasimov, the chief of the base camp. He was saying that there is alread better time ascending Korzhenevskaya - 14 hours - and record also cannot be acknowledged for non-compliance with requirements - advanced notification, check points.
