first off, climbing Elbrus does not necessarily set you back $5,000. There are plenty of reputable (and not-so-reputable) local guide services that will charge you way less than the bigger international guide services do.

Well if you ever wanted to do more adventure and you came close to CA then feel free to contact Joshua Tree Uprising I'm telling you they are just what you'll be looking for. Hope this helps.Scott wrote:This. Go with Pilgrim Tours or 7summits Club. It should be under $1000.
If you don't have experience though, I wouldn't choose the light package.
Go prepared for the cold and possibly severe weather.
Anyway, the views from Elbrus are spectacular, but the mountain has several disadvantages. It's incredibly dirty and the red tape of travelling in Russia is a pain. I found the cities in Russia to be really unfriendly. I have no desire to go back to Elbrus. If you want a more pleasant experience for your first climb, especially for your first overseas climb, there are a lot better mountains to try.
