Whether you focus is adventure travel or mountaineering, Elbrus is a beautiful mountain and well worth climbing. Thousands of skiers cut turns on the glaciers above base camp. There is a wealth of hidden nuggets of information inside the pages of this book on the reality of climbing big cold mountains in remote places.
"This is the mountaineering journal from my September 2012 attempt. I've tried climbing it twice before, and never been above 16,500'. Elbrus is my nemesis. It's my Waterloo." -- from the Author
