ELBRUS – THE NORTH SIDE

There are two routes to the summit of Elbrus. Many people tackle the mountain from the south face where they take cable cars and snowcats to within 1000m of the summit. This sounds pretty dull to us, so we take the much more difficult North face route. This is much harder with a 1,900m elevation gain on the summit day. Previous experience on mountains above 5,000m is a must. The route from the North side is a much more beautiful and less crowded route than the classic route on the south side

The route is not technical and we provide all the necessary training on the expedition. As well as camping throughout the itinerary the summit day involves a 1,900m ascent which can take over 16 hours.

ACONCAGUA – THE NORTH SIDE

Trek Aconcagua with Earth's EdgeOur Aconcagua climb takes you to this towering peak of 6,962m at the heart of the Andes. Aconcagua is the highest mountain in both the Western and Southern hemispheres. The exact origin of its name is unknown, however, the Inca word ‘Acon Cahuk’ translates to ‘Stone Sentinel’ which is befitting of this giant peak. Although Aconcagua is a trekking peak and no technical mountaineering is required to reach its summit, it’s not easy.

The complexities of proper acclimatisation, high winds, extreme cold and a long summit day make climbing Aconcagua a formidable challenge. Our 21-day itinerary allows for proper acclimatisation and has the flexibility to accommodate bad weather. These precautionary measures maximise your chances of reaching the summit.
