Getting ready to head to the summit (Sasha Sak)

IMG Senior Guide Sasha Sak checked in last night and again this morning.  Last night the report from Sasha was that “The snow had stopped falling, the night was very clear but it was a quite windy.  We are going to get ready and head out to take a look at climbing conditions.”  The team geared up in all of the warm clothes and headed out for the summit.  This turned out to be a great plan and the team climbed in great form!  Everything worked out as planned and the team had the right gear to make it to the summit of Mount Elbrus!

They are now back at the hut and will spend one more night before returning to Terskol in the morning.  What will they do to celebrate their climb of Mount Elbrus?  Well, they will visit a Russian Style Sauna of course and then head to Moscow for more sightseeing and celebration!

All is well and congratulations to our Elbrus 2021 Team on their summit!  Join IMG next summer on Elbrus!
