Mt. Elbrus: Tucker & Team Train on Mt. Elbrus

Our night’s stay in the Garabashi Hut (12,000’) on Mt. Elbrus went well. We were up early for a quick breakfast and then headed out onto the mountain with our crampons and ice axes to do some training and review while the snow was still firm.  The team did well and we climbed up 15,000’ which also helped with our acclimatization. Around noon we started our descent and after a few hours arrived back to our camp.  We enjoyed soft snow on our way down and perfect weather.

Once back at the hut we gathered for a nice lunch. We have spent the afternoon resting and drying out our gear.

Looks like an awesome trip; can’t wait to hear more next month.  Rigorous art book training is paying off!

Looks like you guys are fitting in well with the Cossacks up there! Gosh, RMI really went all out and organized a mega-group climb for you all—a “barrel” of fun!  They know how much we love a party.  Any shopping on this mountain?

I spent the weekend at the beach - sunny and warm and thinking of you guys.  Take care, go slow, and listen to Mr. Tucker!  Xoxo.  Renee
