Elbrus - August 16th 2005
« on: Aug 19 2005, 13:38 »

Finally put this baby to rest. Last Tuesday I summited Elbrus after 11 and 3/4 hours walking from the Barrels. The weather was fantastic - clear, not drastically cold but there was a stiff breeze on the summit plateau. Got back to the barrels 16 hours after setting out - we had to help a sick climber down so unfortunately I didn't get to go up the east summit as well - which was my original plan. (I had good acclimatisation from a recent trekking holiday in the Tien Shan)

I'm still in Terskol but I'll post some pics and a trip report in the next week or two.

Very well done and congratulations MoT!

I can't wait to hear all about it when you get back. Sounds like you had a challenging time on Khan Tengri too.

See you soon

PS - Brendan, rinne me dearmad ar an Frenet! B'fhéidir gur féidir liom bheith tinn (le bheith ag ól an iomarca alcól) ar bhárr na seacht sléibhe! Heh heh heh! Arramusha is right!
