Good afternoon! It is Ludmila Korobeshko, this time from the village of Terskol. Here we went yesterday to a little rest and ride out the bad weather, which is now on Elbrus -  two or three days. And now - a very strong wind is  at the summit, we can say it is a storm, blizzard. And at night, and lightning flashing, thunder. At this time in Terskol cut off electricity.

 

In general, the plans we are following: we rise up and try to go at night to climb the summit. In fact, for our Indonesian group  it is the last chance, they already transferred tickets. Because the next night, in tomorrow night, they already have to fly to Moscow.

 

And now they are together, the whole team, went to the local mosque. Because they are all Muslims, and Friday prayer - this is for the Muslims in general, probably, the most sacred. In general, they are now all pray. I think, in particular, for our successful ascent. Here are our business. And still in the team, we had a small exchange.  As the second guide it will be Alex  Abramov. Well, wish us luck! Bye!

  The team of the 7 Summits Club was halfway on the Hoernli crest. In  the weather like this, you have no chance to climb to the top. The weather does not permit, the mountain will not let.  The group climbed in extreme weather conditions. Strong winds, heavy rainfall, the top is tight veil of clouds.  They could not climb to the top, but 50% of the way was passed, which is also the experience. The route of the Matterhorn is difficult and requires good preparation. The descent and ascent without incident - it is already a success.

 

 

The summit is delayed until the next time.

Alexander Abramov. Report of Elbrus Climb blitz program from climbing team under the leadership of Alexander Abramov. July 18th a team of five members arrived in Mineralnye Vody. July 19th we went to the shelter Leaprus. The weather was terrible. It was pouring rain and thunder rumbled. We barely made it to the shelter. After lunch we hired a snow tractor and climbed to the Pastukhov Rocks. At 4600m. There we spend about half-hour to acclimatize, then under the snow and heavy wind began to descend to the Refuge Eleven, where he held a snow-ice training.

 

 At night, in terrible weather, we went to the snowcat at 5100 m. From there, in terms of visibility up to 10 meters and winds of 40 km \ h and snow, we began to climb. We have put an additional 50 marker stake. Its rescued us on the descent. We walked to the top of 6 hours. Only the skill and experience of guides Andrey Berezin and Sanya Melky allowed us to find the way to the top and walk down the mountain alive.

 

It was one of the most extreme ascents in my life. But good job of guides guarantee total confidence and safety. At the top we spent 5 minutes (10 beautiful minutes - according to Andrew Berezin). Then there was a long descent into the blizzard. On this day, only about 20 people  managed to reach the summit of Elbrus. Most of people turned down. Now there is bad weather on Elbrus. And all the teams are waiting for improvements. And my team has already flown home today. Here's a blitz program!

July 20. The group of Indonesian samurais. Here is Lyudmila Korobeshko, all with the same slopes of Elbrus. Yesterday the storm rattled all night. In the morning we tried to go to acclimatize three times, but soaked through, just before reaching the toilet. As a result, we decided to make a day of rest yesterday. Today, we have completed our plans - went for acclimatization to the Pastukhov Rocks. The wind was  terrible and with snowstorm. Tired but satisfied we went down to the shelter. Tomorrow we want to go down to rest in Azau, and the next day to climb the shelter and on the same night to go on climbing.

Bye!
