14 day expedition to climb the hgihest peak Europe, Mount Elbrus, Russia.
Mount Elbrus is an ideal trip for climbers aiming to build their altitude experience while climbing one of the Seven Summits. Starting in Moscow, climbers can experince the Red Square, the Kremlin and that Moscow has to offer before travelling to the incredible Caucasus Mountains.
We begin our climb by acclimatizing in the valley below the peak for a few days before moving up to our moun- tain hut. Here we spend a few days training before making our bid. Solid cramponing skill, harness use, self arrest technique, and fixed line climbing knowledge is helpful but not mandatory as we will refresh these skills with a workshop on the mountain. Mount Elbrus is a great way for any mountaineer to challenge themself at high altitude in less than two weeks.
