A guide of the 7 Summits Club Andrey Berezin reports from the Elbrus region:

Our group continues acclimatization and preparation for the ascent on Elbrus. Today, in the preparation plans, we made an ascent to the Pastukhov Rocks. Since everything is melting a lot now, the relief of the slope is changing a lot, there are streams and rivulets on the way.  But all this is only up to 4400 meters, above, to the Pastukhov rocks, the slope has hardly changed. After two hours of climbing, the weather began to deteriorate and then all the warm clothes that we took with us to the exit came in handy: down jackets, mittens, and ski masks. After spending about an hour at an altitude of 4500 meters, we took a few photos, after which we went to the refuge, where a delicious lunch was waiting for us.  Tomorrow we rest and prepare for the ascent.  The guides of the group are Andrey Berezin and Dmitry Semenov.
