Elbrus expedition from the north

Elbrus ascent is a dream, a first experience in high-altitude mountaineering, a struggle with yourself or an opportunity to meet good people. Climbers come to Elbrus with different goals, but climbing process unites, teaches ones mutual aid and love for the mountains!

Elbrus ascent by the north route is for ones, who like to do things fair. Route of very first ascenders, climbing where no cell service exists, and where no a snowcat could ease your way.

It's all serious in here! Reliance only on yourself and the team!

North route advantage - is in a smooth process of acclimatization with a backpack.

We carry our equipment ourselves from camp to camp, thus preparing our body for final ascent day strains.
