The guide of the 7 Summits Club Alexander Avtomonov: The whole group of the 7 Summits Club reached today the Western peak of Elbrus in very bad weather conditions. All night we struggled with a squally wind and walked through the deep snow that had fallen over the past few days. On the way, we put up hangers for future groups. In the evening, everyone went down to the hotel and then left for Pyatigorsk to continue the program.
