Basically very long hike (Rated 2A in Russian classification). 7-12 hours from "Shelter-11" to the summit of Mt. Elbrus (5642m) and back. Routinely, people go without a rope, but do not underestimate rapid weather changes and significant altitude. Every year the mountain claims several lives of climbers unprepared for rapid weather deterioration.


In summer no pro needed.
