This morning, a guide of 7 Summits Club Sergey Larin and Andrei Mikhaylenko flew to Mineralny Vody to make the next adventure - climbing Elbrus with style blitz (4 partial days).
At lunch they were in the Elbrus area and immediately went to the "Italian" shelter Leaprus (4000m), which was opened especially for them.
And there - gorgeous views and high speed internet access, thanks to which Sergey was able to send a few photos...
This ascent is an acclimation and test of strength before the Aconcagua.
Sergey Larin: Winter begins on Elbrus. On the cable car to the Gara-Bashi it has been chilly. But the weather is clear today. We sit in the Italian refuge, enjoy views of the Main Caucasus Range. Already dined. We are in excellent mood, as it had not "cover" us yet. About future plans so far, we will look at the weather and conditions.
