When the Polish trio decended from Elbrus West top, there was Artur (the guy from Cheboksary) together with them. On the way down to the Col the guys were exhausted, began to freeze, lost orientation. Artur tried to help them, made going faster. Then he started solo descend, but went astray, appeared heavily to the West of "kosaya" on the South slope of Elbrus. Stopped in the dangerous place, he managed to take pictures of the surroundings and send the photo by sell phone to the rescuers. They got this photo and understood the Artur's location. Later he was lifted by the helicopter from dangerous place.
Two Poles died at 5400 and 5300 on the North slope, and had been found there. Rescuers suggested, that the third Polish climber had possibility to go anywhere on such a huge mountain. In any case team of rescuers went by the South and North slopes many times, which where then carefully searched. Rescue team (and Urubko with them) looked into the crevasses, holes, picked up a lot of old lost items - mittens, backpacks and so on - lost by the different climbers during a lot of years, but the body was not found. The next helicopter search is planning in next few days in case of good weather. The photo: searches track Aug 22, on the North slope
