Mt Elbrus 5642m (13th - 23rd August 2020)
To climb Mount Elbrus from the South is an exhilarating expedition via sweeping snow slopes to the col between Mt Elbrus’ twin summits before continuing easily to the true summit.
On this expedition we gradually gain height and increase our chance of success by taking time to acclimatise in the Syltran-Su valley on Mount Mukal and/or Syltrankelbashi, which offer views across the beautiful valleys to Elbrus. Once acclimatised, we use the cable car to regain our high point at just over 4000m from where we follow sweeping snow slopes to the col between Elbrus’ twin summits before continuing easily to the true summit of Europe’s highest mountain
