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

Our group today successfully climbed the Western Peak of Elbrus! The weather conditions were extremely severe - a blizzard, strong wind. We had to crawl to the top almost on all fours - it was blowing away. We're already down there now and are preparing for the solemn receipt of well-deserved diplomas and medals for the ascent.
