Mt. Elbrus climbing schedule 2015

27 November 2014

Here comes our new Mt. Elbrus climbing schedule with dates for our different climbing programs 2015.

All these programs can bring you up to either West (5642 m) or East (5621 m) summit. Normally we climb the higher West summit, as it is considered to be the real Top of Europe.

On our Mt. Elbrus traverses we climb up to the top from one side, and descend to the other (South or North) and ascent either West or East summit. If you are strong enough to take both summits at a time, you will have done the so-called "cross" over Elbrus. This was a rewarding achievement in Soviet times, and still is worth the effort, if you are an ambitious climber!

Four times successfully at the summit since season start

19 May 2013

Since end of April we have had four 100% successful expeditions to the top of Mt. Elbrus.

Due to open ice above Pastukhov Rocks (4500 m) the first 3 groups had to leave their skis at that altitude and climb further on crampons.

But last week finally the conditions on the mountain were perfect for a ski descent. After a strenuous ascent on skins to the saddle we decided to climb the last 300 vertical meters to the summit with our skis on our backpacks. The run directly from the summit was great, good powder right down to our camp at 3700 m!

Good news!

20 April 2013

With the snowfall of the last few days, slightly increasing temperatures and less wind on the mountain, the ice above Pastukhov Rocks (4500 m) is now totally covered. Now it is possible to climb to the summit without fix ropes, just using crampons and ice axe. Using skis for ascent and descent above this mark is still not very safe, due to the small snow cover on the ice, but the fresh snow predicted during the next week will probably improve the situation. This gives us a very good season start, and hopefully all groups intending to climb with skis will be able to do so!
