Join me for this 12-day adventure in Mount Elbrus (5,642 m). The route from the West side will require us to climb by our own means, and that is without lift, snow cat, hotel and shelter.
We are going to be alone in the mountain! Nevertheless, I can assure you’ll see an entire different side of Elbrus. Rock walls and stunning ice formations will be part of the reward.
After the descent, we will have the chance to visit Djily-Suu, a small resort which has mineral water springs. We will enjoy warm baths.
The climbing route goes mainly through the glacier and moraine. We will climb a snow-ice slope to a rock ground on 4,400 m. If the weather is good, you’ll enjoy this place. From there, an inclined slope leads to the summit.
Climbing Mount Elbrus through the West Side route is technically challenging. In fact, it is more difficult than going through the North and South parts of the mountain. Because of this, it’s important that you have a technical preparation.
- Being able to walk with crampons in steep slopes,
- Traversing the glacier using crevasses,
- Spending nights in tents in altitude.
- Clients must also have previous experience in altitude ascent and be able to carry heavy weight.
In case we cannot do the traverse from the West to South part (due to bad weather or any another reason), we’ll descend by the ascent route.
For further details, you can find a day-by-day itinerary below this description.
