Cloudy and cold on ascent, on descent we were caught by thunderstorm and snowfall - so a bit scary :)
But everyone successfully reach the camp.

Left Diesel at 7:10am and made summit at 12:30. Back down to Diesel at 1:50pm. Clear skies but cold and very high winds. The climb was the last peak (besides Beshtau) in my summer trip from Swiss to Russia via Turkey.

If it were not a 7 summit, not many would climb it. Pretty straightforward climb with only the altitude being a factor. Barrels were not as bad as I thought hey would be.. Scott

The guides did not insist on having an ice ax, but in the storm on icy slopes it would have been useful...

I got sick after cold wind to my sweat t-shirt and from drinking too much vodka. With changing fever and chills I turned back around 5200.

jarofirst big mountain  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 23, 2012


This was my first trip to a "big mountain". We were climbing in two days - one from Barrels to Diesel Hut and second day was our summit day, started 3:16am and reached the summit after 11 hours. The weather was perfect and I felt very exhausted during the ascent.

belexesSouth Face Attempt
Date Climbed: Aug 11, 2012


This was a Colorado Mountain Club trip. We took the snow cat up from the Barrels to the base of the Pastukhov Rocks. The weather was lousy: blizzard conditions. After a few minutes of hiking, I started feeling light-headed and dizzy, like I was gonna pass out. I took some tea and oxygen and rested for a few minutes 'til I felt a little better, then I was able to continue. The weather continued to suck, so we decided to turn back at 16,200 feet. I was feeling funky again, so when we got back to the Barrels, I decided - damn it! - to sit out the next day's summit attempt. Everyone else summitted the next day. Oh well, that's the nature of mountaineering. The mountain will always be there, and perhaps there will be another time.

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!

JuhoKNorth route  Sucess!
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!
