My climb was a wonderful one as I was with a small group of people. I climbed Elbrus as a Fund Raiser for the American Diabetes Association. The mountain was climbed starting at the top of the first tram as the second had fallen off its cable some weeks before. THe entire climb to the is less than 24 hours. It was rushed to beat suspected bad weather that was closing in. I had been weathered off Elbrus last year at this time.

My greatest moment was when my companions left the top of Elbrus and I stood there all alone on the top of Europe.
