Team of 8 all summited successfully. Not very difficult but our summit day had excpetionally high winds which made the temperature drop to around minus 40 with the wind chill. Used a local Russian guide who was excellent. The Barrels were surprisingly comfortable and warm. The most dangerous part of the trip was probably the cable car ride - it must have been built 50 years ago!
