Andrey Berezin, guide of the 7 Summits Club from the Elbrus Region:

The group "Viva Elbrus" climbed the Western peak of Elbrus today.  We were pleased with the weather.  It was unusually clear and warm.  The whole group successfully descended to the hotel.  The second (VIP) group under the leadership of Sergey Larin will storm Elbrus tomorrow.
