On the 13-06-2013 I will be climbing Mt Elbrus. Standing at 5642m, Elbrus is the tallest mountain in Europe which makes it part of the 7 Summits Club. The entire mountain of Elbrus is covered by an immense sheet of ice that takes up 145 square kilometers and in some places reaches a thickness of 400m.From the col that divides the two peaks, the white slopes of Mount Elbrus descend gently splitting up into tongues of ice and crevasses .Most climbers had not forgotten that Elbrus was 835m higher than Mont Blanc, they’d just forgotten that Europe extended into Russia.
