A Guide of the 7 Summits Club Sergey Avtomonov, from Turkey:

Today we went to the assault camp for acclimatization.  There was sun, snow and fog, though without rain.  The weather in general was not pleasant, but the forecast promises good conditions for the next few days. Tomorrow we will move to the assault camp already for summit climbing. It feels like all the participants are in good enough shape to go to the top. Let's hope for good weather and great views on the ascent!

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

Today is a scheduled day on the cable car, so we took an early flight, until 9 am. The weather in the morning was overcast and it was snowing.  By lunchtime, the wind and snowfall had stopped.  Meanwhile, we went to a mini-acclimatization under the shelter Diesel Hut.  There we conducted snow and ice classes, mastered the technique of self-arrest with an ice pick, climbing in crampons, and also learned how to fasten on inclined fixed ropes. There was lunch after class.  Now the group is resting and gaining strength before tomorrow's ascent to the Pastukhov Rocks.
