ELBRUS – THE NORTH SIDE
In 2016 – Earth’s Edge changed their Elbrus itinerary and now ascend Elbrus from the North side. This route is much harder with an 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
Standing at an impressive 5642m (18,481’), Elbrus is Europe’s highest mountain and one of the ‘Seven Summits’. Elbrus is located in the Caucasus Mountains which separate Europe and Asia stretching almost 1000km from the Black sea to the Caspian Sea. This beautiful mountain range has some fantastic scenery with vast mountain views, alpine meadows and dense forest. Our 14 day itinerary allows plenty of time for acclimatisation and flexibility in the event of bad weather. Weather plays a huge part in a successful summit attempt with high winds, blizzards, thunderstorms and thick mists common even in summer. Elbrus is covered in snow 365 days of the year and crampons and ice axes are required to reach the summit. However 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.
