I hate to hear stuff like this. Most people in the area just want to live their lives. I’m concerned about the Olympics.

I feel fortunate with how things fell in place for us last year. Pilgrim Tours is allowing extra days on their South Side climbs in case they have to switch to the North again. I see Elbrus Tours is also allowing extra days without being as specific on their reason.

Thanks for sharing this link. Altho I'm not leading this one, I am setting up a CMC trip that will go to Elbrus in early August. Our outfitter, CET-Neva Mountaineering from St. Petersburg, hasn't reported any recent problems or issues in the Elbrus Valley (south side approach). Steve
