We heard from Mike Hamill this morning via email. He reports that they’ve had two full days of touring and will get in a boat tour on the canals tomorrow before hoping on the flight. Sounds like the team is enjoying the experience thus far.
Then, the work begins. Some acclimatization is in order as is a day spent on the Koshkatosh Glacier reviewing crampon technique and learning a few new tricks from their veteran Elbrus, Seven Summits, & Everest guide – Mike Hamill. The attempt on Elbrus is still a few days off.
