Ideal Mont Blanc Summit

 It was an amazing evening on the summit of Mont Blanc! We left the Gouter hut at 3:20 pm and enjoyed a crowd free climb to the top. Summiting at 6:50 pm, we took our time descending, reveling in the incredible evening light cast upon the mountain. A truly amazing day in the mountains and a new friend made.

Elbrus Express Takes Off!

The Elbrus Express is charging full speed ahead.  After a quick in-and-out of Moscow, we flew down south to the Caucasus region. Two starkly beautiful days of acclimatization hikes, one crystal clear and one cloudy and rainy, have quickly preceded our arrival at the Barrels Camp, where we have moved in for our first night on the mountain.
