Elbrus Express Takes Off!
The Elbrus Express is charging full speed ahead. Our debut express trip is taking a classic Seven Summits climb and shortening it to cater to those who have less vacation time to knock out a successful Elbrus summit. In just 11 days door-to-door, you can reach the highest peak of Europe! Check out the updates from our first team:
After a quick in-and-out of Moscow, we flew down south to the Caucasus region. Two starkly beautiful days of acclimatization hikes, one crystal clear and one cloudy and rainy, have quickly preceded our arrival at the Barrels Camp, where we have moved in for our first night on the mountain.

The weather forecast seems to be in our favor and we expect to go for a summit attempt on Wednesday. All aboard!
