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

News of the Elbrus region from the group "May bugs Jazira". Today, according to the plan, we had an rotation to the Pastukhov Rocks. Yesterday, a new cyclone came to Elbrus, which promises to leave tomorrow evening. Due to the weather conditions, we reached the height of 4400 meters in 4 hours (the top point of the rock ridges), then the plateau begins, which is blown by a strong westerly wind. We decided to go down to the refuge, where a delicious hot lunch was already waiting for us.  Tomorrow we have a rest day, we will recuperate before the assault, which is scheduled for Friday.

Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club, Head of the Everest expedition:

What the Everest 2022 expedition has been doing for the last three days?  While Russia is celebrating May 9, we decided to rest and descended to Namche Bazaar at an altitude of 3600 m. Closer to oxygen. And in order not to get tired, we used helicopters. Upon arrival in Namche, oxygen literally fell on us. At first I slept for 24 hours. And I didn't want to wake up. 

But it's dangerous. I had to get up and go eat. Then there was a bar, billiards, beer....  The usual life of climbers on vacation in Namche Bazaar. Arrival of friends and relatives. Haircut, shaving, sauna and massage. Coffee, croissants, momos and cakes. Then shops, shops, pharmacies, shops. And all this in 2 days. All – we must stop. Tomorrow at 11:00 we fly to BC. The rest is over.

 The forecast changes every day. Today, the first teams of climbers spend the night at the 8000 m assault camp. And at night they go to the assault. According to the forecast, the wind is strong. We think we will be at the summit on May 18 or 19.
