Andrey Berezin, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, from the Elbrus region:

News of the Elbrus region from the group "Zephyr".  Zephyr is the west wind of the ancient Greeks. Today it accompanied us throughout the entire ascent. At night, as promised the forecast, it was 30 km / h, and with dawn it began to intensify. We went to the top with gusts up to 50 km/h. On the highest point we congratulated each other and set off on our way back. By this time, clouds appeared and light snow began to fall with the wind. Such a day of wind was our day of ascent.
