Will a normal combination of "thermal long underwear, Mammut Schoeller mountain trousers and knee high Mountain Hardwear gaters" do the trick to stay warm on Elbrus? Or is an additional outershell pants still needed? I'd hate to drag along the extra weight and also hate the sweating inside such pants.
After all, if the MrHanky hits the fan on Elbrus, it's a "quick" sprint down right? :lol)
