ELbrus steepness
« on: Jan 30 2004, 23:51 »

Hello

I'm planing to climb Elbrus this summer via normal route.

What is the steepest section I will encounter in terms of degrees?

Hey Tomasz,
the part just below the Pastukhov rocks is indeed about 35-40 degrees and can be icy.
From the collup to the summit can be steeper, but normally you traverse up there, so if there is a track it will feel less steep.
