This weekend, the Elbrus team was back in the lowlands of the Baksan valley. Our summit day was absolutely perfect. Cloudless skies and breathless wind made for glorious climbing conditions.

Everybody did an awesome job and every team member stood on top of the highest point in Europe!

Those of us on skis enjoyed skiing from the summit all the way back down to the Barrels Basecamp, a 6,000 foot decent. I’m looking forward to our first Elbrus Express trip at the end of July!
