Andrey Berezin, guide of the 7 Summits Club: The new group began acclimatization and preparation for the ascent on Elbrus. Today we went up to the Ai cafe, which is located at the first station of the Cheget cable car. Summer has also come to the Elbrus region. Today was an unusually hot day for these places, the air temperature rose to 35 degrees. But this did not prevent us from completing the program of the day. Tomorrow we will go up to the refuge"National Park", where we will continue to acclimatize.
