Andrey Berezin, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from the Elbrus region:
News of the Elbrus region from the group "Helen and the bears". Today, as planned, we made an acclimatization rotation to the Pastukhov Rocks. The weather was pleasant, it was sunny and clear, so we were able to see most of the Main Caucasian Ridge, such Summits as: Dykhtau, Mizhirgi, Shkhara, Ushba, Shtavler. We hope that the same weather will be on the ascent, and we will be able to see Kazbek and other famous Summits of the Caucasus. Tomorrow we plan to rest and prepare for the ascent.
