The group of Vladimir Kotlyar fought with all his might, but the wind not allowed on the top of Elbrus
Vladimir Kotlyar, a guide of the 7 summits Club: a group of "Adventures of Italians in Russia" attempted the ascent of Elbrus from the North. We reached 5300, but from-for a strong wind (after second attempt) turned around and went down to the valley. All climbers performed perfectly, all fought! With such companions you could go to the mountains, even in military reconnaissance.
