Five dead on Elbrus

Sad. ... 76357.html

Elbrus is a really underestimated mountain. When the weather is good, it's a fairly straight foreward ascent. Weather conditions can be extremely harsh though, especially outside the July-August season.
I'm slow and fat. Unfortunately, those are my good qualities.

I was supposed to do Elbrus this month, but all the flights and visa stuff was a no go due to covid, for a second year in a row.

I wonder which guiding group it was...
