Hi! It says Vladimir Kotlyar, a guide of the program Climb Elbrus. Today we had a heroic attempt to climb to the top. Weather was crystal clear, but very, very, very strong wind. We went up to the height of 5550, and from there unfortunately we had to turn back. Because it was really dangerous. Now we sit in the refuge and look at the Elbrus: not just a cloud, beautiful view, but snowy flag fluttering in the 2 km - from the Western top to the Eastern.

So here we had such a heroic attempt. All the team was great. Turn around - it's a decent thing to do. Dmitry and Valera descend to the north and we are waiting for news from them. The rest of the group is now resting on LeapRus Refuge, tomorrow we will go down to Terskol. All the best!
