Elbrus Climbers Descend to Azau

After yesterday’s adventure the team slept soundly, some a little too soundly, if you know what I mean (read snoring). We had a leisurely morning with breakfast at 9am and then finished packing up all of our gear and headed back down the combination of lifts to reach Azau once again. The thick air of 8,000 ft was warm and welcoming. There was a look of panic in everyone’s eyes when I reminded the team that there were 12 of us who were hoping for hot showers and the water might be limited. Everyone quickly raced off, but there was plenty of hot water and everyone is looking and smelling much better.


We spent the next 2 hours stuffing our bellies with chicken kebabs and some tasty local beer. After lunch the team headed out on a gift shopping mission from which we have just returned.

There is a celebratory dinner on schedule for tonight that usually ends with a little sampling of the local vodka. I’m sure it will be a fun night as everyone is happy to be down from Elbrus and ready to head to St. Petersburg tomorrow.

That’s all for now.
