Andrey Berezin, super-guide of the 7 Summits Club from the Elbrus region:
The group named "American boy" has started a program of preparation and acclimatization for climbing Elbrus. Today we went to the first station of the cable car on Cheget. It has been several days since the cyclone came to the region. Therefore, the weather was overcast, periodically drizzling rain. We were ready for this, and as necessary, we were insulated and protected from precipitation with the necessary clothing in this situation. For the recommendation on equipment, a special thank you to the 7 Summits Club from the grateful participants of the ascent. Tomorrow we will go up to the refuge National Park, where we will continue preparing for the ascent.
