Any of Elbrus climbs from the South can be turned into an Elbrus South to North traverse. However, only with this program we can offer you a lower price – equal to that of climbing with a group – even if you choose to climb alone, without a group.
Any other Elbrus climbs from the South out of this program also can be followed by descent on the northern side, but in that case you will have to pay the extra expenses of additional logistics and guide services.
The Elbrus South to North traverse consists of a pretty easy climb that allows for comfortable and quality acclimatization along with enjoying Elbrus views from different perspectives. You will get also the experience of climbing in roped parties and that of a very-very long day (though, you day wouldn’t be very difficult and long if you choose to use a Snowcat to cut short part of the southern route to an altitude of 5100m). Anyway, you should be in good physical shape since on the northern side of Elbrus there are no such vehicles to rely on.
