With 80 teams on Everest this year, and close to 30 on the surrounding mountains, it's not easy to keep up with the who's who.

Earlier today, we introduced a number of new Spanish teams for Manaslu. In this quick update, RussianClimb.com gives us the latest on the Russian activities in Himalaya right now. Although we've already published some of the news, here's a wrap-up on the current Russian climbs:

Yuri Ermachek postponed

Some changes in Himalaya plans this season: Yuri Ermachek has said that the Polish expedition where he was going to take part, was postponed for the next year due to the difficult political situation in Nepal.

Gleb Sokolov, Yuri Uteshev, Maxut Zhumayev, Vassiliy Pivtsov for Cho Oyu

Maxut Zhumayev left for Kathmandu April 13, heading for Cho Oyu together with Vassiliy Pivtsov (they are both from the Central Sport Club of Kazakhstan Army). They may join the Siberia Cho Oyu Expedition (Gleb Sokolov, Yuri Uteshev +3) which started April 17.

Iljas Tukhvatullin eye surgery omitted Melungtse

Yuri Koshelenko goes for Melungtse - not with Iljas Tukhvatullin as planned - but with Nickolay Totmjanin and Carlos Buhler.

Iljas Tukhvatullin had to cancel the project due to two eye surgeries.

Serguey Bogomolov, Gia Tortladze for Manaslu

Serguey Bogomolov is continuing his project "14K" - he and Gia Tortladze have joined the Spanish Manaslu expedition. They're currently in Kathmandu ready to start the trek to base camp.
