Hello! Here is a guide  of the Seven Summits Club Andrey Berezin. Today our group climbed to the top of Mount Elbrus. The weather was beautiful, as pilots say, "a million to a million." At the summit we were at 8 am. On this day, a huge number of people have been here. We can say it was a pandemonium. In order to get to the top, it was necessary to stand in line. To make a photo...

Now our team went down, all cheerful and happy ...

Best regards! Andrey Berezin.

Our partner in Ecuador, the famous local guide Edgar Parra, who is also founder and director of his own company, brought to office a very interesting person. This is his client, his client from the United States, from California. His name is Tom Biksler. 42-year-old American is living with a diagnosis of diabetes type 2 and besides suffered a serious operation for Crohn's disease.

 

 

Formally, he is twice the invalid. He is not just a living, he had come to climb Mount Elbrus. The highest peak of Europe should be a third of his planned collection "Seven summis". Tom is going to become the first diabetic to complete this program. While in his collection there are Kilimanjaro - 2012, and Aconcagua - 2013. Trying to climb Mount McKinley in 2015, ended in failure due to prolonged bad weather:

Hello, everyone! It is  Vladimir Kotlyar, climbing Elbrus program. Today we climbed to the top of the Eastern Elbrus, with the couple of Ignatievs. The weather was great, everything was great. There was a light frost. We did not took off our warm down jackets until  turned back down from the summit. But on the whole it was a clear sunny day, though frosty. In general, it was fun and great. Finally I went to the East summit, only the second time this season.

All, Adios! Today we will have an awarding certificates ceremony and a festive dinner.
