The weather was fine and quiet, except of the summit part.

The current speed record on Elbrus belongs to Andrzej Bargel (Poland) Р3.23.37 made in 2010 on International Elbrus Race

We’ve been climbing there by ourselves while Vitaly was running, so were able to make some pictures of Elbrus Champion.
