Elevation: 12,000'

Hello friends,

We spent the day hiking to over 15,000’ on Elbrus to continue our acclimatization before our summit bid. Our plan is to spend the rest of today and most of tomorrow resting in preparation for Saturday’s climb. The weather has been less than ideal with snow falling the last few days. Although there have not been spectacular views the team is psyched about the improving climbing conditions. Normally the route is very icy which makes for tough going and slightly more dangerous conditions. However, all the new snow has made easier and safer climbing.

Everyone is doing well and we are looking forward to lounging around tomorrow.
