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.
