Elbrus climbing season 2019 started unexpectedly active in spring comparing ith the last year. In cold January two Romanians Radu and Radu were the first climbers of their country to climb both Eastern and Weatern Elbrus tops in one day.In spring first was an ice-climbing trip then came skitour group. From April all our guests intended to climb Mt. Elbrus.
This season we have had climbers from different countries: Switzerlans, Austria, Australia,USA,Taiwan,Korea,Romania,Great Britain, New Zealand, UAE, Pakistan, Iran, France, Spain, Cyprus, Malta, Serbia and Croatia, Lithuania, Latvia, Canada, Kazakhstan and of course our Russian climbers.
In 2019 climbing season Alpindustria Team greeted 414 Elbrus climbers. 389 guests reached the Elbrus summit – 5642 m, 29 people failed due to different reasons, among them bad feeling, unfit for climbing, nasty weather and others. But they were not much disappointed and plan coming next year being more prepared for it.
As a matter of fact the weather on Elbrus was rather friendly this year. Though in July it was unusually cold for this time of the year and too much rainy. In spite of it on the climbing day we were presented fine weather and we succeeded to reach the summit.
The British group who were traversing Elbrus from the North to the South could not climb the tip because of the weather coming for the worse. The traversed the saddle to the hotel for a short rest and the next day they were happy to reach the summit. The next was a wonderful day as the gift for their persistence.
In late September a single Canadian came for the climb. First four days were summer warm. But later on it came for the worst with the hurricane, snow showers, invisibility all together which made the climb impossible. Safety is beyond discussion….. Well, it is so painful to come from the other side of the Earth and to stay at the hut going nowhere. But the Mountain seemed to say, Well, it is enough for this year… And Michael, a Canadian climber, decided to have another attempt next year.
So next 2020 we will be happy to all those who failed to reach the Elbrus summit this year – and welcome to all new active life fans to join our Elbrus trips with our Alpindustria team! European Highest Summit adventure – once in a lifetime!
