Hi everyone,
This is the Mt. Elbrus North-side Expedition checking in from our Base Camp.  Today we carried a big chunk of our gear up to about 11,500’ before returning to 8,500’.  The summit was socked in today but the lower slopes had mostly sunny skies which was perfect for us.  Our group is 100% healthy and strong and everyone is having fun.  We’re going to spend the afternoon relaxing and prepping for our move up to Camp 1 tomorrow.
