Elbrus Training Expedition

Join a TeamJames Hipkiss

As part of our training for the South America 3 Peaks Expedition we are running a training expedition to the Caucasus Range in Russia in August to climb Elbrus (5,642m), Europe's highest mountain.

Dates: 16th - 23rd August Duration: 8 days (MinVody to MinVody) Numbers: up to 9 Cost: $1,600 per person (3:1 climber:guide ratio) Distance: 25kms Challenge: Difficult Mountain accommodation: Huts Elbrus is a great mountain for aspiring climbers who want to test their skills at a higher altitude.

Nevertheless, high-altitude and unpredictable weather can make this a challenging ascent. Team members should have basic mountaineering skills, but our local guides provide on-site training in basic alpine skills such as moving on crampons before the summit day.
