Mount Elbrus is the highest summit not only of the Caucasus but of Europe. This rocky giant attracts huge amount of climbers. Our route is not very hard technically (by the climbing classification the ascent of Elbrus from the South (the top of Western summit of Elbrus or Eastern), defined as the route 2A category of difficulty). 
At the same time, it requires the use of special climbing equipment: crampons, ice axe (you will teach to the use them during the studies on the technique of movement on snow and ice).
Climbing Elbrus from the South gives the opportunity to see the whole Caucasus from the height. Ascent at a dawn is especially memorable - a huge shadow of Elbrus stays in the rays of the rising sun in the West.
