News of the Elbrus region. Two groups of the 7 Summits Club with guides Andrey Berezin and Alexander Dorojukov made an acclimatization rotation to the Pastukhov Rocks, up to a height of 4500 meters. Now in the Elbrus region there is an active melting of snow cover, which is associated with an increase in air temperature. And because of this, there is both the "snow porridge" and the streams on the path to the Pastukhov rocks. We have to try to follow in the footsteps of previously passed groups. The weather also was not the best, a strong wind was blowing above 4300, so everyone climbed to the lower rocks of Pastukhov at a height of 4500-4600, where they spent about 20 minutes. Tomorrow the groups are resting and preparing for the summit assault.

Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Pakistan:
There is no Internet here, neither satellite nor mobile. The whole sky is overcast. It's raining. Luda and I spent a night in Camp 2. And today, under the roar of avalanches and the howling of blizzards, we were able to descend to the base camp of Broad Peak. Today is July 13th. Since July 17th, everyone here expects good weather. I have a different opinion. The weather in Pakistan this year is not encouraging. There are still no fixed ropes to the top of Broad Peak. And on K2 in general, ropes were hung only up to camp 3.
