utclimberNormal Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 1, 2010
Rode ski lifts to the Barrels Hut, then hiked up and set camp just above the Diesel Hut. Spent the next day acclimatizing. Had perfect clear weather on summit day, and not too cold. A bit crowded, but late May/early June seems like the perfect time to visit. I used Pilgrim Tours Lite Package, and it was a great service to make the logistics simple. The Caucasus mountains are an incredible range.

Climbed it in August 2009. The whole caucasus area is magnificent. We first climbed Mt. Gumachi & Cheget for acclimatisation.

We had great weather on the whole trip, and Elbrus is a magnificent mountain, but it was a bit crowded when i was there, due to a big Korean group.

No summit. Terible bad weather, wait in tent for 4 days, and then when I tried I had to turn back from the saddle. Of course on my last day I took the car to airport, in a sunny perfect day.

Realy disappointed with everything aroud that mountain, I won't returne soon.

LabrancheSeven Summits #2  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 25, 2009


I was part of a Canadian expedition, using logistical services from Pilgrim Tours, that reached the summit, as a team, this August 2009. It's very windy on the summit. The mountain is filled with human waste. It's quite appalling. Hopefully the local government will take control of the mountain in the new few years, and arrange to have it cleaned.

I climbed the west summit of Elbrus on July 21th 2009. Beautiful sunrise but the weather turned bad afterwards so no view from the summit. But a wonderful day :-)

Early morning start in great weather but windy and very cold at the summit. Was sick the whole trip which made it my hardest climb, I could barely breathe due to illness. Was well worth it.....even the house of pain and the house of horror at the barrells!!!!! :-)

Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2009


With Kristan, Todd, Zig, Sasha and Konstantin at 11 a.m. Gale-force winds, low visibilty and cold temps couldn't dampen our elation at reaching the summit, but this was no picnic of a climb. Fewer than 30 climbers reached the summit on this day. Because the cable car/chair lift was out of operation we ended up reaching the barrels huts the previous day by riding in the back of an army-surplus dump truck, a ride which puts anything at Six Flags to shame!

Together with Ramon Sijmons and Peter-Arjen Boers we reached the west summit of Elbrus on July 27th 2000. Great climb! We organised everything ourselves, with some help from Pilgrim Tours for paperwork and logistics. :D

I was very lucky with the weather. Have planned this day back home for more than a year. Walked straight from Azau up to Diesel hut. Spent the night in one of the neighbouring smaller huts. One day to acclimatize up to 5000m and back to the hut. On the third day I summited after a strenuous 10 hours climb. 10:15am up on the west summit, normal route. A beautiful day with very light winds. It became incredibly hot on the descent on the glacier on the lower slopes. The Pilgrimtour's "Light package" was excellent. Everything worked out just fine!
