Successful Climbing Expedition of the SAO Team to Mt. Elbrus Dedicated to the 50th SAO RAS Anniversary

As part of the celebration events dedicated to the 50th SAO RAS anniversary, on August 4, 2016 the expedition to Mt. Elbrus has started from Nizhnii Arkhyz. The members of the group:

On August 8, 2016, at 14:00, the team of 5 people (Marukhno Andrey, Marukhno Nikita, Perepelitsyn Alexander, Moskvitin Alexander, Baturina Julia), despite the fog, reached the eastern peak of Elbrus (5621 m a.s.l.).

Due to bad weather conditions on August 8 (the group climbed in thick fog), it was decided to take a day of rest and then repeat the ascension.

On August 10, at 7:50, Marukhno Andrey and Moskvitin Alexander successfully remounted the eastern peak of Elbrus. The weather was sunny.
