Mt. Elbrus: JJ Justman & Team Sightseeing in St. Petersburg

Hello everyone! It is Team Elbrus reporting from St. Petersburg. Last evening we had a great celebration in Cheget. I cannot fully explain how thrilled I am to have climbed with such a great team. We had a diverse group. Our youngest member, Charlotte, is 16 and tough as nails! I had to apologize on summit day because Elbrus wasn’t high enough for her as she casually strolled to the summit. Our oldest team member makes me hope that I will be as strong at that age, especially since I will most likely be guiding into my late 80’s.

We made it into St. Petersburg and we are resting and relaxing in our beautiful hotel near one of the city’s canals. We have a full day of touring this beautiful city. Stay tuned for some great videos and photos of our final day in this fantastic country.

Congratulations Elsie, Charlotte, and the whole team.  We are so proud of you!  Can’t wait to hear more about it.

Elsie, Charlotte, JJ and the rest of the team.  Glad to hear from you and, once again, congratulations!  I was beginning to wonder if you’d decided to stay up on the mountain for another week or so. Pleased to hear that you’re safely down the mountain, and taking in the sights in St. Petersburg.
