BLongIndependent North Side Climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2012


I had a blast climbing Mt Elbrus from its remote North side. Our team of 3 decided to climb the peak on our own, although we hired a driver to take us to and from the base camp. We planned for 11 days on the peak, got lucky with weather, and reached the summit on day 7. Aron was able to ski down from a carry to camp 3, and then skied from the summit to the saddle, climbed back up to 18,000 ' and then skied to camp 2. Tom and I shot photos and video throughout the expedition. It was a great trip indeed!

Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2012


I climbed Elbrus with a great international group of Pilgrim Tours. North route is the only proper way to climb Elbrus. No skilifts or snowcats. Amazing adventure but a littlebit boring climb. Summitday was long from Camp 1 (3750m) to the summit!

MountainHikerCONorth Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 15, 2011


Did north route because south side is not accessible. Myself and guide Yuri. 6/12 base camp to high camp. 6/13 acclimation hike to rocks (15000'). 6/14 rest day. 6/15 summit, pack down to base camp. MountainHikerette didn't feel strong after acclimation hike so didn't try for summit.

russian_nomad2nd Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2008


Only tweo weeks after my 1st west-summit I climbed with another group from our camp site on Pastukhov rocks to the summit. Passed lots of people and made it to the summit in clear perfect weather. Felt in perfect shape to travel to Nepal for Himlung (7126m)

Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2008


Initial plan was to summit Elbrus form South-West but we diverted with my group to Normal Route and camped on Pasthukov rocks. Next morning made it early to the summit. Perfect weather

Excellent weather. Approach to Refuge of 11 from Terskol, without using the cable car, through observatory and the glacier Gara-Bashi. Really fun - 3500 vertical meters only through the power of the legs.

Lovely day. Some thunderheads in the late afternoon, but nothing to worry too much about.

Date Climbed: Sep 13, 2007


I got to the mountain and learned that a race to the top will be taking place in a couple of days. Decided to take part in the "Extreme course" that is to climb from Azau (2400 m) straight to the summit. I didn't have enough time to acclimatize properly and made a mistake taking all the gear with me from the start (I could leave a deposit at the Barrels) and eventually got caught by the time limits on the pass between the summits.
Eventually climbed the summit the next day starting from the Barrels. It was cold and windy but easy.
I'm bit disappointed that I didn't succeed on the first push from Azau but on the other hand it was a decent effort considering that I had no lightweight running gear.

svenssoncNice day for summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2010


We left camp at 2 am and made it to the summit in six hours on a nice and sunny day. Eva kept a good nice pace and Caj and Rasmus just followed. Anders and Emelie was a little behind but recovered and were back in camp first of us.

rockrat2Fun trip
Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2010


Interesting trip, not technical at all but a very long slog. We actually started hiking from the base at around 7000' and only used the lifts to carry our gear up to the barrels. We made it to 17,780 before being turned back by weather. Also one member of our party came down with HAPE so had to get him off. So close to the summit but it will be there next year. Extremely windy, actually almost blowing us over several times. No need for technical gear on this route.

John ClimberElbrus traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2010

John Climber

Me and a friend of mine summited Elbrus west after midday of august, 8th, some time after have been doing the same with the east summit. We were making a traverse of the mountain from the east to the summit and fro the summit over the normal route in descend. It took us 5 whole days in the mountian to achieve this adventure, with total autonomy and in alpine style.

Good weather conditions during the whole enterprise. In the morning were blue skyes but gradually in the afternoon storms were developing. Around 15:00 - 16:00 there were some showers/snow for about two-three hours (eevntually with strong winds) but with the nightfall situation was getting quiet again.

Almost wind still on the summits.
