Here comes a hi from the Russian mountains on the boarder to Georgia. I arrived safely (after a crazy drive from the airport) to the Cheget area yesterday.
I have joined a group of 10 climbers. Very international group: 2 from the US, 2 from South Africa, 2 from Polan, 1 german, 1 australian, 1 russian and me from Norway :)
We had a great aclimatization climb up to a 3460 m peak today. Weather was good. Elbrus is still covered i clouds…. but not to bad.
Tomorrow we will start our climb up Elbrus. Might be some days without news here. I hope to summit mid next week. Cross fingers for good weather.
