Andrey Berezin, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from the Elbrus region:
News of the Elbrus region. The group "Creative Ermines", as planned yesterday, went to the Pastukhov Rocks. The weather this season does not please us with clear days. Therefore, as always, we took the necessary amount of warm clothes. So, we went to acclimatize to the Pastukhov Rocks. In 3 hours we gained more than 800 meters vertically. The wind was blowing with grits above. Ski masks, buffs and warm gloves came in handy here. Tomorrow we rest. According to the plan, we are going to climb the summit on Friday. The guides of the group are Andrey Berezin and Alexey Lonchinsky.
