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

News of the Elbrus region from the group "M&M's". Today we climbed the Western peak of Elbrus.  As it has already become a tradition for this season's weather, the forecast did not come true.   By the time we reached the top, clouds covered Elbrus.  On the ascent, I had to take the initiative to improve the trail from the saddle to the top.  On the way back, we were forced to focus on the hangers that marked the trail, as we descended in the "milk". But all these weather difficulties only consolidated our success and confidence in the abilities of our beautiful participants: Marina Sviridova and Marina Muravyeva. We wish them to continue their chosen course. The group's guide is Andrey Berezin.

News of the Elbrus region from the Plan Vulkan group. Well, what can I say, the vulcan plan has been successfully implemented.  After several days of bad weather, our group went out to climb that night.

After dawn, the weather began to deteriorate: clouds were replaced by snowfall and wind along the top. On the descent from the top of Elbrus, we had to shockingly hurry. We have coped with this successfully.  The result: several days of waiting and 100% ascent of the group. The guides of the group are Andrey Berezin and Dmitry Semenov.
