Mt. Elbrus: Teams Waits on the Mountain for Better Weather

It is a soggy day on Mount Elbrus. The weather has turned and not for the better. It’s raining pretty constant at the moment. What was to be a training day has turned into a hunker down day.

Don’t get me wrong, I could make it sound like its epic and the team is hanging onto the walls of our huts. However, it’s still not too bad. But with the potential of a small break in the weather for tomorrow, there is no need to get sopping wet.

The team is reading, watching tv and dreaming of their dance moves on the summit of Elbrus…hopefully tomorrow! So keep your fingers crossed for us…
