Boris Egorov, guide of the 7 Summits Club: Today we had a long day. Mount Elbrus struck us with its unpredictability. We have experienced almost all weather phenomena: this is the wind, and snow, and the lack of visibility, and even the unexpectedly scorching sun on the descent. For those who ventured to reach the top, this was an additional test. But, at the same time, the difficulties made the ascent unforgettable.

So, four representatives of hot Egypt were standing today on the highest point in Europe. Now everyone has gone down to the hotel and is recuperating. Guides Boris Egorov and Kristina Putintseva.
