Good morning! This is Vladimir Kotlyar, a guide of the program Climbing Elbrus with traverse into the North.. We did the traverse, by the whole team. But with the ascent to the very top we got a little snag. We were attacked by a storm, very strong, so ...

Well, in general, on the whole, we had a real climbing action. Fortunately, this happens rarely.

Well, nothing. We all passed this test with dignity. We waded through the storm, passed over crevasses in ... in conditions of absolute no visibility. In the end, we were safely down to the North side, had a walk around, visited the "mushrooms". And now, we are in the city of Kislovodsk. We are resting, warming the bones, enjoy what we've done. All are very happy. Especially me. That all.
Be happy! So long!

Hi, Seven Summits! It is Artem Rostovtsev from the slopes of Mount Elbrus. I worked with a small group of two people. Unfortunately, one "passenger" was not able to get out on the ascent. But I and Vasya Petrov, we went to the top the Western Peak and then (as a bonus) to the Eastern summit. At the moment, we went down somewhere at the height of 4800-4900. Hello from the slopes of Mount Elbrus!

Hello! This is Vladimir Kotlyar, a guide of Climb Elbrus program. My group Todos Huntos made a successful ascent. We did it yesterday, in strong winds and not very favorable weather. But, nevertheless, we made the ascent at a very good pace. Well done! All members of the group. And we went down, unfortunately, not as planned - to the North, but back to the South. Due to bad weather, we decided that would be safer go back, where more people, less cracks. So we went down to Terskol, everything well.

Hi! It says Vladimir Kotlyar, a guide of the program Climb Elbrus. Today we had a heroic attempt to climb to the top. Weather was crystal clear, but very, very, very strong wind. We went up to the height of 5550, and from there unfortunately we had to turn back. Because it was really dangerous. Now we sit in the refuge and look at the Elbrus: not just a cloud, beautiful view, but snowy flag fluttering in the 2 km - from the Western top to the Eastern.

So here we had such a heroic attempt. All the team was great. Turn around - it's a decent thing to do. Dmitry and Valera descend to the north and we are waiting for news from them. The rest of the group is now resting on LeapRus Refuge, tomorrow we will go down to Terskol. All the best!

Hello everyone! It is Vladimir Kotlyar, the new group began its work on the program "Climb Elbrus". Today is our first day of acclimatization. And now we are on our finishing point on the summit of Mount Cheget, at an altitude of 3500. The weather is bad, everything around is covered with clouds, hail and rain. But, in principle, something is visible. Here I am now, for example, I see a waterfall Girlish braids, the observatory, lake Donguz-Orun and the people standing around me. They feel good, they drink tea. And I think I will join them, because it will be warmer and more interesting.
That’s all... I go to drink tea. Adios!

Today - the day of departure of the Elbrus group of our guide Vladimir Kotlyar. The impressions they leave on the social networks.


"All day we went on the nearby trails - from Narzan Meadow to Terskol. According to conservative estimates, we went 12 km.
In the evening, our guide Volodya gave us certificates and T-shirts of the 7 Summits Club "for participation in the ascent" ...
The evening was ended in the distinctive restaurant "Captain Pitt", as it should be - fiery dances ....
In the morning we did a walking to the waterfall "Maiden's braids" in the hills above Terskol.
The weather was quite cool, we decided not to take fresh ice bath.
Distance traveled: 14 km, gained altitude from 2100 m to 2785 m.

May 6 was the day of the mass ascent on Elbrus. And that day had the most favorable weather conditions. Yes, there was a full visibility, but it was a terrible cold. Old-timers say so cold in May was never before. So the climb for our team was not sweet walk. The team reached the top at four, one of the members did not have the strength to a finish effort. We think there was not enough acclimatization. But it was impossible to postpone the climbing. In the following days, the weather forecast is much worse.

This site propose fairly short and concise statement of the facts from different areas of knowledge. Elbrus is described briefly and in half of the cases with errors and inaccuracies. However, the final part of the text pleased us. Here facts are basically correct and the name of our leader Alexander Abramov rightly inscribed in the history of the mountain.

http://factualfacts.com/world/mount-elbrus/#__scoop_post=b5eabce0-d7e5-11e4-8a30-001018304b75&__scoop_topic=4009301

“1997

Russian Alexander Abramov guided a ten man expedition, where a Land Rover was driven to the peak. It took 43 days to accomplish this goal, but there were a lot of struggles that had to be overcome. They had to change tyres and utilize winches to pull the vehicle up and it was a continuous cycle of ascending and descending the mountain to retrieve replacement parts that had got damaged. After a lot of sweat and tears they finally reached the peak on September 13, 1997. The Land Rover was abandoned after an attempt down, when they lost control. They later returned to fetch it, but found it too difficult. It still sits in the same spot today and can be seen by other climbers and adventurers”.
