On Elbrus – Europe highest peak.
Wx was bad on 23 for summit attempt thus the final climb was called of.
24 we tried and had to turn 200 m before summit due strong snow blizzard – 40-45 k winds , freezing temp, thunderstorm, lightening – took the decision to turn back, very tough decision but safety was paramount.
Will try one last time on 27 morning . Winds are still strong 40-45k . Hope for the best .. keep me in prayers
Will keep you posted. Seeking blessings for him.
