In September 2016, working as an Expedition Leader for Adventure Peaks, I lead an expedition to Russia to attempt Mt Elbrus from the North side.
Elbrus, 5642m, Europe's highest peak and one of the Seven Summits is situated in the dramatic mountain range of the Caucasas.
The Northern approach is more remote, away from the cable cars of the South. Whilst the route is described as more beautiful, the final summit day is far longer and more exhausting being around 1,900m of ascent to the main west summit.
