Frequently asked questions
about Mt. Elbrus South Route
Do you work legally?
Yes. We operate under a contract on behalf of "sole proprietor Dmitry Klimenko" - this is one of the lead guides.
Do you assist in getting a Russian visa?
Yes. We provide all necessary documents.
How do I pay?
You transfer a prepayment of €150 via a bank in advance. You can pay the rest in cash upon arrival in Pyatigorsk.
Insured event - what are the guide's actions?
If an insured event occurs (injury, falling own, acute mountain sickness attack), the lead guide stops the group, evaluates the situation and makes a decision on emergency evacuation or planned descent accompanied by an assistant guide.
After making the decision the lead guide
- calls the insurance company and reports the surname, name, date of birth and country of residence of the injured participant
- calls the Rescue Service and follows their instructions
- If necessary, immobilizes the injured participant on the slope or starts an immediate descent accompanied by a second assistant guide

As a rule, the remaining group continues the climb
Hygiene on Mount Elbrus. Will there be a shower and what about the toilet?
You can take a hot shower in Terskol at the camping site or in the hotel.
There is no shower at the high camp at 3900m. Outhouse style toilet. Its cleanliness depends on the tidiness of each participant. Once a day an employee of the mountain refuge cleans the toilet.
How much will the backpack weigh and what will I carry?
For the South route you will need a climbing backpack (35-45 litres). As a rule, the backpack contains: down jacket, gloves, a flashlight, camera, snack and a thermos of tea. The weight of this backpack does not exceed 6-8 kg.
A ski lift is used to get to the high camp. So it is better to pack your other personal belongings (gear, sleeping bag, bed linens) in a duffel bag. A large backpack (80-100 litres) will also do.
Food and cooking equipment are also stowed separately - usually they are carried by several people.
What and how are we going to eat?
Breakfasts are included in the price. Snacks are a personal choice; a lot of "goodies" can be bought in the market in Pyatigorsk (cheese, sausages, dried fruit).
We have dinner at a cafe in Terskol. The diversity and quality of Caucasian cuisine are worth a try!
Full board at the high camp at 3900m is included in the price. Cooking is the responsibility of the participants on duty - by turn under the supervision of the lead guide. When purchasing groceries personal preferences are taken into account. You should inform the coordinator about your food preferences when booking a tour (lactose intolerance, vegetarianism, etc.)
What is the best season for climbing Elbrus?
Summer months. In the past 3 years the weather was stable the first two weeks of September.
The climbs in the beginning of May tend to be successful. However, one should always remember that the weather forecast is a lottery.
I have never been in the mountains. Will I be able to climb?
Yes, you will. But it will be very hard. Personal motivation, a healthy lifestyle and physical stamina are the basis of a successful Elbrus climb.

This can be a great starting point for the journey into the world of high-altitude mountain climbing!
What are the age restrictions for climbing Elbrus?
We do not take children under 14 years old into the mountains.
Participation at the age of 60 or above is considered on an individual basis - the coordinator, makes the decision based on the answers to a number of questions.
Acclimatization
Smooth acclimatization is a guarantee for success. That's why our Elbrus climb lasts 11 days and we have 2 attempts to reach the West summit

Отзывы о восхождении
на Эльбрус с юга
5 642 metres

The height of the Elbrus West summit
3 000 people

Climb Elbrus via South route every year (unofficial figure)
1 842 metres

Difference in elevation between the Garabashi huts and the summit
Honestly, I don't remember being afraid in the mountains. On the contrary, I feel like a bird spreading its wings before flying.
