Move to the Barrels

It’s another beautiful day here in Russia, which was perfect for our move to our base camp. We started with two gondola rides and finished with a single chair lift to reach our home for the next few days (sounds tough I know). Our base is a series of giant barrels that sit at 12,000’ about half way up the mountain. There are 12 barrels in total and they are shared by climbers from all over the world.

After our move and a quick lunch we headed uphill on Elbrus to further help our acclimatization. We climbed uphill for about 2 hours and reached just over 14,000’.

The team has return to camp and are currently awaiting dinner. Everyone is doing great and looking forward to a good night’s sleep.
