Mount Elbrus Trip Report (#14456)

  • Date(s) climbed: 14th August 2003

Took the snow cat to 4700m (!) and walked to the top in clear, but windy conditions. Not very hard if you are well acclimatised and the weather is good. For several days beforehand the weather had been awful and no-one had made it to the summit - we climbed part way and it was hell - low visibility with hail being blasted at you by the wind. But on the day we climbed, the weather was good, and probably 70-80 people reached the summit in total.
