Alternative to the Southern route

The climb to Elbrus from the North passes along the route of pioneers and first ascents, places that have historical names (Emanuel's glade, the Lenz rocks). We are trying to make this route special. It seems to be an alternative to the overloaded Southern route. You will be closer to the nature, what constitutes such an important spirit of a researcher and a discoverer.

Our camps are located in unique and deserted places.
