Natalia Marinkevich, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from the Elbrus region:

Natalia Marinkevich's group "Snow-fish" together with Andrey Berezin's group "Victoria-Pobeda" spent the first day on the slopes of Elbrus. We have worked out the technique of self-arrest, including when breaking down upside down. Classes were held on steep slopes at an altitude of 4000. We also trained the technique of traversing in crampons and with an ice axe.

All participants feel well. Comfortable accommodation and delicious food 4 times a day pleasantly delight future climbers!

The group "Me and my young team" from Skardu are in touch! We got the permits! Hurray! Tomorrow morning we will start to Askole by jeeps. And the day after tomorrow — we have a transfer to Jola Camp.

Unfortunately, most likely tomorrow is the last day when we will have a stable connection. According to the plan, we should arrive at the K2 Base Camp on July 11.

And what happened today? To be honest, it's even good that we stayed in Skardu for another day, because today we visited the Deosai National Park.  Deosai, or the Shadow of a Giant, is the second highest high—altitude plateau in the world, 4300m. Acclimatization was successful! The climb is 2000 meters. In a word, we are well done!

We will not paint for a long time about the beauty of this place. Photos  will say everything for themselves!

Daria Sivova and Viktor Volodin are in touch!
