Climb Mount Elbrus North side. This expedition takes the more remote approach away from the cable cars and chair lifts of the South. Whilst the route may be described as more beautiful the final summit day is far longer and more exhausting being around 1,900m to the main west summit and should therefore only be attempted by those with a very high level of fitness!!
The Base Camp for the Northern approach is situated at Emmanuel Glade offering a much more pastoral landscape compared to the steeper mountainous landscapes seen from the South. There is one more camp above Base Camp, which is used for our summit bid. The team will climb to Lenz Rocks as part of the acclimatisation before summit day.
Despite the North side being a more challenging summit day Adventure Peaks has an outstanding success rate on both the North and South sides of Elbrus.
