Never underestimate the mountains. Elbrus was much colder (below 0 F) snowier and longer than I anticipated. Summit day was 15 hrs. We lucked out with the weather - clear, sunny and nice at the summit. Our acclimatization hikes were in total white-out a couple days earlier. I summitted with Wayne (see a few logs down...) and had a great time with the Dutch Boys (log next to Wayne). Congrats to all, especially the climber with no legs winching his way up the mtn with an ascender.
