The guide of the 7 Summits Club Evgeny Fedyunin reports from the Elbrus region:
Hello everyone! The group "It's snow time" of the 7 Summits Club made an attempt to climb Elbrus! It was, of course, not torture, but in conditions of zero visibility, close to it. Blitz is always like roulette, and if you add bad weather, the chance is doubly reduced!
But we honestly trod and struggled with the snowfall. Having reached the saddle and weighed all the pros and cons, we decided to repeat what we started at a more favorable time.
All the weather and good luck!
