Elbrus Team – Acclimatizing Near the Mountain

Lead guide Jacob Schmitz called in a report after the team took an acclimatization hike in preparation for their ascent of Elbrus, in southeastern Russia.  The team will hike to progressively higher altitudes in order to better prepare their bodies for heading high on the mountain.  Below is a picture from today’s hike, with the two summits of Elbrus in the background.
