Sergey Larin, guide of the 7 Summits Club:  The group "1078", on July 17 at 7:25, climbed the highest point of Europe. We left by ratrak at 2: 00, and at 9:45 we already went down to the refuge.

Although only one participant has been at altitude before - on Aconcagua, and the second –f or the first time in the mountains.
