Hi there this is Seth checking in for the Mt. Elbrus Northside Expedition.  Our friend the wind finally gave us a break today!  At around 2 am the big gusts died off and by sunup everything was calm.  Everyone was stoked to get up and finally get on the glacier.  By 9:00 we were cramponed up and climbing.  The route was great and JJ set a nice pace.  We made it to our high camp in 4.5 hours.  We dropped off some food, fuel and a little gear there and then boogied back down to Camp 1.  If the weather allows we will move up to high camp tomorrow!
