MT ELBRUS BY SOUTH ROUTE 7 SUMMITS CHALLENGE

KMt. Elbrus, with its 5,642 meters, becomes the highest mountain on the European continent. Live a unique experience in an incredible and unique place, achieving one of the famous 7 summits.

Elbrus is a dormant two-summit volcano in the central Caucasus. The two summits are two separate volcanos. The “young cone” – the eastern summit – is 5621m high, while the highest point – the western summit – is 5642 m. Elbrus’s slopes generally are not steep but the average slope angle reaches 35 degrees after 4000m altitude. Northern and western slopes feature numerous vertical cliffs as high as 700m. Eastern and southern slopes are low-pitched.
The classic southern route leads to Elbrus’ western summit (5642 m). The route is not technically difficult but requires good physical form, acclimatization and skills in using some alpinist equipment.

ABOUT ELBRUS

Elbrus is located 20 km north of the main divide of the Greater Caucasus and 65 km southwest of the Russian city of Kislovodsk. Its permanent ice cap feeds 22 glaciers, from which the Baksan, Kuban and Malka rivers are born, among others.
The Elbrus region remains one of the most attractive among all the regions of the Caucasus, despite great height and varied weather.
Being an artificial border, it is considered that the northern part of the Caucasus is European and the South Asian part. Therefore, Mount Elbrus, with 5,642 m of altitude, is the highest mountain in Europe when it is located in the North Caucasus.
Traditionally it was thought that the mythical Mont Blanc was the highest in Europe; however, the Elbrus exceeds it considerably by 800 m.

Mawenzi is seven miles east of Kibo, separated by a long depression. It is an older cone, jagged from erosion, with pure faces on all sides. Despite its lower elevation, ascent of Mawenzi is more difficult, and no approach is possible without rock climbing and ice climbing skills and snow.
