Day 1

Mt Elbrus day one and the team acclimatized to 3100m on Mt Cheget here in Russia. We moved up onto the buffer Border Zone between Russia and Georgia. All the team are in great form and looking forward to the next 11 day in Russia. Freddy T Bear is back climbing with me after a long absence from being on expeditions.

Here are some shots of today. Great weather, the view and spectacular on this trek.  #MtElbrus #7Summits #MtBlanc #Challenge #Mountain#Trekking #FindYourDream Adventures of a lifetime

Day 2

Mt Elbrus a beautiful trek from the village of Therskol to The Astronomical Observatory at 3050 meters. From farmsteads, we made our way up through alpine woods and the valley of the flowers before breaking out onto an alpine region with spectacular scenery over Cheget, Therskol and AZAU. Then onto a beautiful waterfall is known as Dolls Hair before ascending to 3050 meters to the Observatory where we gained sights of our objective Mt Elbrus. Here are some photos and a video worth watching of Day 2. Great weather, the terrain was very different today on this trek. #MtElbrus #7Summits #MtBlanc#Challenge #Mountain #Trekking #FindYourDream Adventures of a lifetime Keep posted and share. #MtElbrus 

Day 3

A big acclimatization day today as the team we made our way to Base Camp Elbrus at 3900 meters before returning to Azau at 2200 meter and prepare for moving up onto Elbrus tomorrow. Now it will be all focus on getting ready for a summit attempt over the next few days. We are, of course, worried about the weather, and we will be keeping our eye on our best possible chance to summit. The forecast for the weather is very mixed. Keep posted and see how we get on in attempting Europes highest mountain. #MtElbrus #7Summits #MtBlanc #Challenge #Mountain #Trekking#FindYourDream Adventures of a lifetime Keep posted and share. 

Day 4

A mixed bag of sun and bad weather today. We moved for our low base camp in Azua at 3900m camp to our container accommodation (Away better than a tent!!) as you can see from pictures. Then an acclimatization trek in mixed conditions to above 4100meter. The team are in good form, and Freddy T.Bear has a bit of altitude sickness and is suffering from a slight headache. Video shows mixed conditions. All are resting tonight and tomorrow we do a switchback trek to 4850 / 5100 meters as we prepare for a summit attempt on Sunday morning as the weather is closing in. Cross fingers.

It’s decision time, and at a team meeting, we have decided to go on Am Sunday morning to give ourselves the best chance at the summit. It’s going to be a tough one. The team are in great form and are going to take a rest day tomorrow Saturday and be reading to leave early am Sunday. #MtElbrus #7Summits #MtBlanc #Challenge #Mountain #Kilimanjaro#Trekking #FindYourDream #Trekking Adventures of a Keep posted and share.
