Today, six climbers from China and two Russian guide reached the Western summit ofMount Elbrus... It was not easy, as the physical form of our Chinese friends were not quite good. But the weather was favorable, and the whole group reached the summit. Alex Abramov and Alexandra Sack were the guides from the 7 Summits Club. It was our first group from China, and we hope that in the future hundreds of Chinese climbers will go to Elbrus. We have already learned how to work with them, and most importantly, what and how to feed them. Welcome!

Hello! It is Dmitry Ermakov from the Elbrus region. Yesterday we made a record. We climbed the mountain in 4 hours from camp to camp. Of course, we used a little snowcat. But the fact, however, even for me it is a discovery. I myself never did the top of Mount Elbrus with such speed. A record. In general, all is OK. Yesterday, almost all the participants returned home. We are waiting for the next. Everything is fine. Come all to Elbrus region. We are waiting for you. Hello everyone!
