Dmitry Semenov, the guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from the Elbrus region:
Greetings from the slopes of snow-white Elbrus! Today was an important and responsible day for us. Our group "Vertical" has made its first ascent to a serious height, and this is the top of the Pastukhov Rocks - 4700m. The weather was accompanied by a successful ascent, we walked at a good pace and the reward for this was wonderful views. Tomorrow we have a rest and a night out to storm the summit.
