Elbrus both summits

Hello all,

Have anyone attempted to do both summits of Elbrus (West+East) in 1 day. First climb the west summit, then do the east summit on the way back? Is there enough time?

I am trying to find a route from the south side, and would appreciate if anyone have any experience of completing this? Suggestion of route, start time etc.

Have a nice day,

Ushba South

I am planning to make an attempt on Ushba, Khergiani Route in august or september. Anybody who know when will be best? I know the weather is better in september, but I am concerned how cold it might be high in the mountains as it is quite hard rock climbing. Any tip would be greatly appreciated.

Guidebook Summiting Matterhorn

Hi Climbers,

Is there anybody who knows about a good guidebook summiting Matterhorn following the Hornli Ridge ? It seems like every book that I can find is about hiking.

Chamonix to Zermatt

Hi Folks,

Dolomites - Alta Via 1 or Alta Via 2?

Hello everyone,

my partner and I are planning a trip to the Dolomites this summer (late June to early-mid July). Originally we were thinking of hiking the Alta Via 1, as recommended by a friend who did the route, but we've been looking at Alta Via 2 as well. We both have experience in multi-day mountain trekking, but we haven't ever been to the Dolomites. We would like to do a day or two of ...

Cosmique Refuge

I was thinking of spending few days in this area to do a bit of landscape photography. I thought cosmique refuge would be a perfect place for me to spend 2-3 days and explore the area. From the pictures I can see, it doesn't look difficult/tricky around the hut.
