SO as the moment of the great climb is approaching and most of the bureaucracy was done, it is time to tell the world that in two weeks I will be heading with a friend of mine to the Caucasus Mountains in Southern Russia.
I am not a mountain climber and the highest I have ember climbed was a bit above 2000 m. At least we are going with an agency so we will have plenty of time to acclimatize (4 days actually :D)
In the upcomming posts I will describe the route to go from Romania to Mt Elbrus and I will also post my personal equipment list later on with the relevant photos. So let the new adventure begin
