Lyudmila Korobeshko, director of the 7 Summits Club and the group's guide, reports from the Elbrus region:

Greetings to all from the slopes of Elbrus!  Today we learned self-arrest with ice axes, remembered walking in crampons and on the fixed ropes. Wet, but satisfied, the participants went down to the hotel on the Cheget glade. However, the main impression of the day was the green borscht from the cook Zulia. We want more and will go tomorrow for more (after the Pastukhov Rocks).
