Elbrus Expedition, July/August 2005, Russia

Went to Mount Elbrus with a group led by Scandinavian Ascents. After a few days of acclimatisation we started our way up towards the peak and reached it about 1 week after that. Everything went well except I had frostbite on a couple of toes, but they recovered. Peak is at slightly below 5700 meters. Very nice holiday! Note: These pictures were not taken by me but by others in the group. Asked for permission back in 2005 to use them for my blog, but don't have their names any more..
