Mt. Elbrus – Equipment list with pictures :)

Hei everyone. Almost time for the big trip. Three days by car and then 8 days on the mountain, trying to climb Europe’s highest point, Mt. Elbrus at 5642 m. I uploaded my personal equipment list, with the names and quantities of the products, the price and where I bought them. I haven’t included such basic things as personal food items, eating utensils etc. Enjoy the pics (I have gained some weight btw :D)
