Mid June to mid September: Elbrus North – South Traverse

Elbrus – Anna Drozhzina

The northern side of Elbrus is much less developed than the southern side, so is much less crowded. With an 11 day programme there is gentle acclimatisation through serene landscapes of the North before summiting the main summit (5642m), the highest summit in Europe, and descending on the Southern side with completely different scenery! A brief course in glacier travel is included.


End June to end September: South side of Mount Kazbek

Kazbek – Anna Drozhzina

Climbing Kazbek (5047m) from Georgia has the benefit of easier acclimatisation than Elbrus, and without the usual crowds of Elbrus normal route! The climb is slightly more technical than the Elbrus normal route with a short, steep section before the summit. The approach through green foothills is truly enjoyable with pack horses carrying your luggage.
