Return to the Mountains and Summit Success

As the world opens up, October saw us return to the mountains.

Russia removed its quarantine requirements in October so we jumped at the chance to get our first Elbrus clients to the summit for over two years. The group departed the UK on October 2nd and were on the summit of Elbrus one week later in beautiful sunshine!

I left the UK on 24th October travelled to Kenya and stood on top of Mt Kenya one week later, then transferred to Tanzania and summited Kilimanjaro the following week!

Our next summits were in Mexico last week. All three volcanoes in our itinerary were successful, cumulating in the highest volcanic summit in North America, Pico de Orizaba at 5636m.

Nepal also opened its doors to us in October and we were quickly on our way to Mera Peak 6476m and Baruntse 7129m. The weather wasn’t quite as kind, halting Mera Peak at high camp 5800m with heavy snow and whiteout conditions. On Baruntse the team was also able to reach high camp at 6410m despite winds of more than 85 km/hr for multiple days.

We are now looking forward to December and January! Where is open and what confirmed expedition can I book and join:
