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

News of Elbrus!  “Kaliningrad-Kamchatka” Group continues acclimatization on Elbrus. Today, according to the plan, we had an ascent to the Pastukhov Rocks.  May Elbrus is harsh, and the weather was unfavorable, so we did not reach the goal, but only up to an altitude of 4400 meters. There, to consolidate high-altitude acclimatization, we spent about an hour drinking tea, eating sweets, taking pictures and baiting stories.  Tomorrow we have a day of rest and preparation for the ascent.  Guides Berezin & Semenov.
