Guide of the 7 Summits Club Vladimir Murzaev from the Elbrus region:  News from Elbrus. Today, on July 31, the group "Lucky Chance" made an ascent on Elbrus. The weather was perfect.

Impressions from the participant @Katiachup : I had a long-standing dream to conquer Elbrus, I offered my son and he agreed, in return, not to go to a camp.

We have already bought a tour on Kilimanjaro, from the 7 Summits Club. Then the son did not reach summit and regretted it. We agreed very quickly, collected some things from the list for climbing Elbrus, we rented everything else on the spot.

We had 4 days, we were very lucky with the guide Vladimir. This is a professional in his field, we learned so much about mountaineering and other extreme sports, time flew by very quickly!

On the day of the ascent, we had another cool guide, he is a local resident and works in the Ministry of Emergency Situations, Aznor. I was very calm for my son, as he was walking with him. The ascent was very difficult for me, there was hard mountain sickness until the very descent. But with our guides, we had no chance not to reach the summit.

We conquered Elbrus, together with my son, largely thanks to our guides! I want to say thank you for their professionalism! For finding the right words, for helping me with mountain sickness all the way up. I also want to mention the cuisine in our camp, Zulya and Olya prepared very delicious dishes for us, they were always very friendly, and in general, the atmosphere in the kitchen was very cool.

We got more than we expected! Thanks to Marina and Irma! For the organization and for always being in touch!
