Climbing Europe's highest mountain

Step Up at the summit of Elbrus
Step Up at the summit of Elbrus

With most of Step Up’s normal summer programme cancelled because of the pandemic, a group of Step Up volunteers, students and teachers decided to take on a formidable challenge. Their aim was to conquer the highest mountain in Europe, Elbrus, which is located in Russia’s North Caucasus. A mere 5,642 metres!

The organization of the trip was done by Step Up student Aleksei, while the group was led by local guides Anna and Evgeniy. After more than a week acclimatizing on the lower slopes of Elbrus, the party left at 3am on 9 August from the last overnight stop on the mountain, to make the final ascent to the summit.

The weather at the top was perfect, and the view spread for dozens of miles in all directions! Twelve people from the party made the final ascent, with others keeping at lower altitudes for health reasons, or because of altitude sickness. We left the Step Up flag we took to the top at Elbrus' Shelter 11 — where the flags from summiteers are traditionally flown.
