Artem Rostovtsev, the 7 Summit Club guide:
The 7 Summits Club group successfully used the half-day weather window on Mount Belukha yesterday. To make it in time, we decided to start to the summit (4509 m) not from the assault camp, but from the Tomsky camps (3000 m). The plan was the only right one. We have successfully climbed and have already successfully descended.
