  1. I met Vladimir briefly, as he was staying at the same Tea House in Gorek while he was doing some preparatory climbing in the region before going to Base Camp for the Everest Trek. We chatted briefly over breakfast one morning late in March. He was determined and confident and looked forward to his climb. He clearly was doing what he loved. May he rest in peace.
