Mt. Elbrus: Grom and Team Arrive at 12,000’

We started our day at a reasonable hour with breakfast at 8:00 am; we had porridge, fried eggs, and of course plenty of the Starbucks coffee we brought along.

After breakfast, we finished the remainder of our packing and headed over to the gondola and hitched a ride further up the mountain to our new base camp. Two gondola rides and one super long single chair lift delivered us to our new home just over 12,000’. Our new home is basically a retrofitted shipping container, and to be honest it’s reasonably comfortable.

We had a nice lunch prepared by our wonderful cook, Albina. She’s a great cook, but I think is a little over worked as she’s been up here since my last trip.

With our gondola and chair lift rides this morning, we needed some post-lunch exercise so we headed out to stretch our legs and continue our acclimatization process by hiking for a little over an hour and gaining well over a thousand feet of elevation. Everyone did great and we are now back at camp watching the evening clouds roll in and getting ready for dinner.
