Here’s the early morning email from Jonathan and our Elbrus team:
We got our weather window and summited at 8:15am this morning in pristine conditions. Everyone did great breaking trail ahead of all the other teams making their push this morning. Lots of stacked up demand for summits after the recent bout of poor weather. We’re back in Terskol for some R&R. Dinner and a few drinks are on the agenda for the evening.
And that’s the way it’s done. Nice job, Jonathan, Igor, Sasha and team. Patience is, indeed, a virtue. We’re super proud of these guys.
