Hey everyone it is JJ Justman and Seth Waterfall and the ENTIRE Northside Elbrus team on the summit of the highest peak in Europe, Mt. Elbrus at 18,510’.  We have a beautiful day- sun is shining, birds are chirping, butterflies are flying.  And the team just did fantastic, 100% success. We’re very proud of the team.  We got a little bit of work to get down hill but tell you what, the team’s just doing great and we’re gonna get down to camp, have a little water and go from there. Thanks for following along. And thanks for all your wishes. We will touch base one more time, just letting you know that we got down safe and sound, but everything is great on the highest mountain in Europe. Ciao for now.

Update 7:55 a.m. PST:  JJ called to report the team is back at Camp 1, which is off the glacier.  The team is doing great and they have a lot of packing to do before the continue their descent.  The team will check in again from Kislovodsk.
