Next on the list Mt.Elbrus

  |   7Summits, Elbrus   |   No comment
In just over 3 weeks I will be attempting to climb Mt. Elbrus, the highest mountain in Europe standing 5,642m(18,510ft). Many think that Mt.Blanc is highest in Europe where it is a technical climb, however it is not even one of the top 5. The top 5 lie in the Caucasus mountain range.
Mount Elbrus is located in the western Caucasus mountain range, in Kabardino-Balkaria and Karachay–Cherkessia, Russia, near the border of Georgia.
Elbrus at 5.642m is an extreme, high altitude climb. I should be comfortable climbing up to 8 hours per day. Summit day is the most demanding portion of the climb, typically involving 8 hours for the ascent and 7 hours for the descent, that is 15hr straight . The expedition requires strength & endurance. Being in sound physical condition is the single most important aspect for me to maximize my chances to summit. The better my physical condition, the more likely I will perform well and have an enjoyable experience. I had my issues with other mountains, you can never underestimated the fitness level needed to fully enjoy they trip.
