Members of the ‘7 Summits Club’ team have reached the top of Mount Elbrus, despite tricky weather for much of the climb.
“Summit! A group of the 7 Summits Club made the ascent on Mount Elbrus in difficult weather conditions.”
“Andrey Berezin, guide of the 7 Summits Club from the Elbrus area: We were silent for several days. Today we have something to say! After several days of waiting for a weather window, on June 5, in severe weather conditions, the group named “Platoon of easy Behavior” climbed the Western summit of Elbrus.
“Wind, snow, frost – all this did not affect the mood of the participants. At 8: 30, the first part of the group was at the top.”
