Andrey Berezin, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, from the Elbrus region:

News of the Elbrus region from the group "May bugs Jazira". Today, according to the plan, we had an rotation to the Pastukhov Rocks. Yesterday, a new cyclone came to Elbrus, which promises to leave tomorrow evening. Due to the weather conditions, we reached the height of 4400 meters in 4 hours (the top point of the rock ridges), then the plateau begins, which is blown by a strong westerly wind. We decided to go down to the refuge, where a delicious hot lunch was already waiting for us.  Tomorrow we have a rest day, we will recuperate before the assault, which is scheduled for Friday.
