Group guide Max Shakirov: Today we spent the first day of acclimatization with pleasure and joy, climbing from Stepantsminda to the Church of the Holy Trinity. We gained about 500 meters in height. According to the forecast, we were promised rain, but it was not... It was comfortable, that is, not hot. In a word, we got a real pleasure! Tomorrow we have a climb to the refuge Meteostation, and on the 29th, according to the plan, we will storm the summit.
