Mt. Elbrus: Gorum & Team Climb to 15,000’ on Acclimatization Hike

This morning we had our standard breakfast of oatmeal and eggs at our standard time of 8 am. We then suited up for our walk up to 15,000 feet on Mt. Elbrus. The weather was pretty marginal, but it was a great opportunity to test out our various layering systems.
We spent about five hours out in the wind and snow today, made it up to 15,000 feet, and only got blown over once or twice. The views were minimal, but we had fun. That’s all for now.

Love the pictures and updates. Looks like you’re getting all 4 seasons on one trip. Can’t wait to hear about your Friday hike - hoping for clear weather and great views!

We’re suffering through weather with temperatures in the 80’s while you’re up there!!  Safe climbing and hoping for less wind.
