Andrey Berezin, guide of the 7 Summits Club:  A group called "Crystal" has started a training program for climbing Elbrus.  Today we spent the first day of acclimatization on the slopes of Cheget. We climbed to the first station of the cable car, the height is 2700, we gained 700 meters in height. To start acclimatization, we have enough.  Tomorrow we plan to climb the refuge National Park and continue preparing for the ascent there.  The second group under the leadership of Alexander Dorojukov also started acclimatization rotation today.
