ELBRUS SOUTH SIDE TRIPS

KavkazSkiTur Ltd operates as local company and propose to travel agencies, guides, mountaineers, groups to organize climbing on Mount Elbrus.

Mount Elbrus  attracts mountaineers from all parts of the world. The routes to Mt. Elbrus are not difficult. It is possible to reach the peak without having a high-degree qualification. From the point of view of modern mountaineering as a sport Elbrus does not present any insurmountable difficulty. There are many routes leading to its peaks, and they are all comparatively easy. The main dangerous during an ascent are the snow-covered crevasses in glaciers and the low temperatures.

The simplest and the most popular is “Classical Climbing Elbrus” by swing cableway “Elbrus”, beginning from Azau glade (2350 m):

1st line – st. “Azau” – st. “Stary Krugozor” (3000 m).
2nd line – st. “Stary Krugozor” – st. “Mir” (3500 m).
3rd line – st. “Mir” – st. “Gara Bashi” (3850 m). 

The main base-camp is situated on mountain hotel “Gara-Bashi” (3800 m). It represents 14 “barrels” for 6 persons each, of cylinder form (in Russian so-called “Bochki”), for 80 persons generally. There are two dining-rooms for 15 persons each, including gas stoves on liquid gas. Every barrel has electricity with electric heating.

For the acclimatization effect climbers stay two nights on altitude 4000m.
First day acclimatization ascent to Pastukhov’s rocks (4800m).
Second day early morning begins the ascent to mount Elbrus. The way goes in direction of the Pastukhov’s Rocks (4,800 m) over the snow-ice field. Ascend directly ups 300-400 meters from the Pastukhov’s Rocks and then smoothly turn left across the slope and reach the saddle.

There are snow tractors – special mountain tractor, which can take till Pastukhov’s Rocks in several minutes.

It takes 5 or 6 hours from the Priut huts to the saddle. On the left side of the saddle, under the west summit slopes, near the beginning of the snow mould the hut construction is situated. At the distance of 250 – 300 meters above the hut turn  from the saddle and over the snow slope with the simple rock places up to the rock shoulder. From the shoulder over the wide horizontal plateau come to the round on the Mount Elbrus west summit (5,642 meters). It takes 1,5 or 2 hours from the saddle to the summit. It takes 3,5 or 4 hours for the descent to the Priut hut going along the ascent line.
