Elevation: 18,510'

The Mt. Elbrus North Side team reached the summit of Mt. Elbrus at 2 pm local time on August 12th.  The team had good weather for their summit attempt.  After taking photos and soaking in the views they descended to their high camp, broke down camp and descended to Camp 1.  The team will spend their final night on the mountain tonight and make their way to the trail head tomorrow for a ride back to Kislovodsk.

Congratulations to the Mt. Elbrus North Side Team!
