Situated along the Caucasus Mountains in Southern Russia, Mount Elbrus is the highest mountain in Europe, qualifying it as one of the Seven Summits*.
Mount Elbrus has two volcanic domes for its summits, the taller West Summit standing at 5,642 meters.
*The Seven Summits: the highest mountains on each of the seven continents
The lower summit was first ascended by Khillar Khachirov on 10 July 1829. The higher West Summit was then reached by a British expedition led by F. Crauford Grove.
There are 2 major routes up and down the mountain, which are the Normal and Kiukurtliu Routes. One would fly into Terskol Village and walk 5km to Azau. A cable car will bring you from Azau to Barrels hut, from which it will be an average of 6 – 9 hours to the summit of Elbrus
Mount Elbrus is home to the Elbrus Race which started in 1990. The first winner was the late great mountaineer Anatoli Boukreev, clocking a mere 1 hour 47 minutes to the East Summit from Priut 11.
The 7th International Elbrus Race will be held on the 2nd – 10th September 2017.
Renee Goes to Elbrus
Having successfully summited Kilimanjaro a few years back, mountaineer Renee Aziz Ahmad is now on her final preparation stages to attempt Mount Elbrus.
Kembara Srikandi Prihatin (facebook.com/kembarasrikandiprihatin/) is a project established by Persatuan Kembara Negara to promote healthy lifestyle among women. The Mount Elbrus expedition is a reflection of will to fight against despair brought by different reasons in life shown through the willingness of the climbers to accept this life challenging quest.
Renee is a breast cancer survivor and a long-time friend of Corezone. She is also a Corezone-sponsored mountaineer for the upcoming expedition.
