Summit of Mount Elbrus, Russia, highest point in Europe!
Mountain climbing is a new found sport for me. And it does not have to be that technical to achieve great heights. But it is a super challenge and not a typical vacation beware. Although the feeling of accomplishment is worth every difficult step. I am very proud and fulfilled after my return.
Mount Elbrus was my third of the 7 summits - the west summit being the hihest point in all of Europe. I was able to summit all 18,510 feet with RMI Expeditions (having Casey and Victor as awesome guides) this past July high in the Caucasus Mountains with a bit of time on Moscow prior and St. Pete's before flying home to New York.
