Elbrus Warm-Up

Climbed Cheget as a warm-up for Elbrus. Nice peak with great views towards Elbrus and Donguzurun.
Climbed to +-3200m. You need a permit to cross the border zone (since spring of 2018), we didn't have one so we decided to call it a day.

Cheget villiage  Sucess!

An acclimatization for Mt Elbrus. Seemed more like a bump on a ridge to me. Missed our views of Elbrus due to clouds, but great views of a few other amazing peaks.

We slept near the top to get acclimatized before climbing Elbrus and enjoyed the dream-like views of surrounding peaks: Ushba, the twin-peaks of Elbrus and the north face of Donguzorun. It was incredible!
