On 22 July the group of ice swimmers from “Ice swimmers of the capital” club under the leadership of their Chairman Natalia Seraya made ascent on the east peak of Elbrus. Alpinists brought two banners: the banner or their club and the banner of the cosmetic company Repharm. Both banners were up over the clouds on the highest mountain of Europe at the height of 5621 meter!
The details of ascending
Natalia Seraya reported about details of the ascending right after the descending:
“The top of Elbrus met alpinist team on 22 July 2017 at 9 am.
Through the ice-cold harsh wind blizzard, hailstorm, breaking the face, steep rocky slopes over the clouds we passed tired and exhausted but happy.
In the hard conditions we were overcaming one obstacle after another day and night. We started on 21 July night at 23:20 fully equipped, walked all night up the glacier and came on top on 22 July at 9:00. There was hard to move and breath. Last steps were the most difficult. We could hardly move, and it wasn’t up to photo. Then the long-standing descending is over, we are now in the camping.
