The Southern Route is an all inclusive 10 day adventure, allowing to stand on top of one of the Seven Summits. Together we fly via Moscow, into Mineralnye Vody and on to town of Terskol, which is nestled in the Caucasus mountain range. The challenge includes two days acclimation where you and your team will trek to the separate peaks of Terskol and Tscheget based in the shadow of the mountain before heading to the base. As a group we use a cable car to rise to the camp at Garabash at 3,800m. From here as a team you will pass the Pastukhov rocks before attempted in reach the highest mountain in Europe (5,642m) from here will descend back down the mountain to enjoy a traditional vodka and a celebratory meal!
The quest starts from here, nothing but determination and hard work will get you to the top will a lot of training and preparation required to make this achievable. Our Mt Elbrus routes are some of the toughest challenges that we currently offer and as much as it is a very achievable challenge it is one that should not be taken lightly. We will provide you with all the support you need along the way and upon registering you will receive a challenge pack with all the information you need including kit lists, training guides and our detailed challenge manual.
