Hey everyone this is Scott Patch with an Elbrus dispatch for August 2nd 2013.
Today we woke up to foggy conditions at 1:00 am. In the hour of summit
preparation the fog lifted to beautifully clear skis. At just shortly after
2:00am we left for the summit. Thanks to clear skies, light winds and good
snow conditions the summit was reachable. Congratulations to Ryan, Terry,
Andrea, Dan and Jan for a great summit push and success on Elbrus!!
