The day before, the weather forecast was alarming and there was an option to try to postpone the assault to the day after tomorrow. But there the forecast was even worse. There was an intrigue until one o'clock in the morning, but now it's time to make a decision and - yes, there is a chance! We are starting! After 45 minutes, we came to the surface of the glacier, then the movement was with limited visibility, 30-50 meters. When dawn broke, the fog receded in places, a light wind blows. We are going in a tight group, other groups are going in parallel, quite a lot. At 9 and 9-30, we finally reach the top. Unfortunately, there was no visibility, we were standing in the cloud, but the task was completed. Our group went down to the Meteostation Gefuge at 13 o'clock.

The “Kazbek-IronMan” group is in touch.  On August 8, at 10 o'clock in the morning, my colleague Guram and I picked up the members of group at the Marriott Hotel in Tbilisi. We got acquainted with the group and went on a short journey - 2.5 hours to Stepansminda (altitude 1700 m), from where we will start our ascent on Kazbek. We stayed in an excellent hotel, which stands above the center of the village.  It offers stunning views of the surrounding mountains! Here we met another of our guides - George. Everything is going fine so far, the weather and the mood are on top!

Today, on August 9, we moved out of the hotel on two Trucks, passed the PCR and immediately went up to the Sameba Church. We loaded the horses on a large platform and started the track to the AltiHut shelter (3014m).  We reached it at a good pace! Everything is fine, we were lucky with the weather, it was windless, without precipitation and cloudy (not so hot).
