hike: meeting for mt elbrus russia trip - January 10, 2010

A meeting will be held about Sun, Jan 10 to begin planning for a mountaineering trip in July 2010 to Mt Elbrus being organized by Svetlana Litvinenko. Mt Elbrus, at 18,513', is the highest point in Europe and is one of the "seven summits". Having climbed it last July, I would describe it as an EXT backpack with crampons and ice ax on a flagged and well-traveled route. It was an easier route and shorter but much higher hike than Mt Whitney, my previous high peak. Following the Mt Elbrus climb, there will be an option to climb Lenin Peak in Kyrgyzstan at 23,406''. Anyone interested, curious, wanting to learn more, see a slide show or talk with the 2009 group please, contact Zig Sondelski by phone or email for details and meeting information.
