Mt. Elbrus climbing schedule 2015

27 November 2014

Here comes our new Mt. Elbrus climbing schedule with dates for our different climbing programs 2015.



All these programs can bring you up to either West (5642 m) or East (5621 m) summit. Normally we climb the higher West summit, as it is considered to be the real Top of Europe.

On our traverses we climb from one side, and descend to the other (North or South), and do either West or East summit. If you are strong enough to take both summits at a time you will have done the so-called "cross" over Elbrus. This was a rewarding achievement in Soviet times, and still is worth the effort, if you are an ambitious climber!


All programs can be done either walking or with skis/ snowboard, snow conditions allowing. There is no such period to say "better for skis" or "better for walking", as the last years showed very different conditions depending on which time of the year and which side of Elbrus you climb. In general, there is less snow in spring (April/ early May) and more in late May till mid July, and also more snow on the South side (due to more precipitations and less wind), than on the North. This makes late May/ June the best time for a ski descent, but you do not need to be necessarily on skis to climb Mt. Elbrus during this time!
