Spoke this morning with Mike Hamill. The team and he were back at the high hut after having climbed Elbrus. All team members stood on top – 100%. Great news. Windy but manageable. They’ll spend the night at the hut, clean things up in the morning and then head down to their hotel in Terskol. Since the weather has been so cooperative, they’ll have both their contingent days to do a bit more climbing and likely spend a day touring the valley. Nice.
