Mt. Elbrus: Seth and Team Tour Moscow

Hi Everyone,

It’s been a fun, if slightly soggy, day in Moscow.  The day started with thunder and lightning at sunrise but as we all met up over breakfast the light show subsided.  After breakfast we took a nice walk around Red Square and met up with a local tour guide.  She took us into the Kremlin and showed us all around the old cathedrals inside.  While we were in the Kremlin the skies opened up and it started to rain.  We gave everyone the option to bail out and return to the hotel but this crew is tough and all of the stuck it out.

After touring the Kremlin some folks wanted to do their own thing for a bit so we split into 3 groups for lunch time.  After that we met back in the hotel and reviewed the gear necessary for the climb.  Pete and I split up after that and checked out everyone’s gears individually.  Everyone seems very well prepared with top-notch gear and plenty of mountain food.

Everything is lining up nicely for our departure for Mineralnye Vody and Kisklovodsk tomorrow.
