News of the Elbrus region.  The first of new season group of the 7 Summits Club has started active acclimatization on the slopes of Cheget.  Today we went up to the Ai cafe. Snow gradually melts from the slopes of Cheget, but in places the trail passes through snowfields.  In the afternoon we visited the rental, where we got the necessary equipment.  Now we are preparing for tomorrow's exit.  Tomorrow we will move to the shelter National Park, altitude 3900 m. There we will continue acclimatization and preparation for the ascent.
