It’s show time. Gang had a good walk to the Pastohov Rocks, a couple of hours above the hut. Good warm up and great acclimatization. The weather has cleared and they’re in bed now, ready to take a shot in the morning. Keep in mind, Elbrus time is 10 hours later than Seattle. A thunderstorm went through this afternoon but they’re anticipating reasonable weather for the summit bid. Everyone’s looking healthy and ready to roll. Time now to climb to the top of Europe and snag another of the Seven Summits.
