During a long time the 5.642 meters Elbrus peak has been forgotten, but its the non C.E.E. Europe”s highest peak. Thanks to airway companies” facilities last years it became easy to fly to this area, and with the political aperture to active tourism, the Elbrus has been an objective for a lot of climbers.
In a 9 days expedition, we”ll attempt to reach the west Elbrus peak massif. If the group acclimatization is good, the climbing speed correct and there is acceptable weather, we”ll have the possibility of reaching the 5.626 meters east peak during the same day.
Technically easy, you need a big resistance to success in this expedition. Another important element is the personal equipment: appropriate clothing, climbing shoes, gloves and sleeping bag, because it isn”t scarce to reach -25ºC.
