But nature has made its changes to our plans, in the form of a cyclone from the Atlantic.

 Artem Rostovtsev, guide of the 7 Summits Club from Georgia:

Georgia. Kazbek. We had a plan, a program, and the weather adjusted to us. We got a day and a half of great weather neatly in the days of climbing. Here's the rest of the team also decided to use this window. We had to figure out how not to crowd with anyone on top. And we started early and perfectly calculated the right pace on the rise. In the end we were 20 minutes on the top alone. And then the crowds, the crowds arrived.

 

And now we have a whole day for wine-gastronomic ecstasy.
