Lots of companies talk about the success summit rate – the percentage of people that successfully make it onto the top of Elbrus. But that’s not the number that we like to talk about. The most important number for Russian Mountain Holidays is zero. That’s the number of guests who have had accidents whilst climbing or skiing with RMH.
But if you really want to know how likely you are to make it to the summit, here it is:
If you arrive in Russia physically and mentally prepared, and the weather conditions are safe for climbing, all of our guests make it to the top. For example, thanks to very stable weather conditions through the entire season in both 2016 and 2017, we had a 100% success summit rate with all our guests.
Each program is perfect in it’s own way and it really depends on what you are looking for.
The South Route is the fastest and the shortest way up to the summit. There is a possibility of using cable car up to the high camp (3800 meters), snowcats and electricity.
The North Route is more athletic and challenging, but also more beautiful and wild!
The Traverse Route is really unique and you can enjoy the advantages of both routes!

In most cases we recommend having a complete list of all the necessary equipment for your climbing. You will feel much more comfortable climbing in your own gear than in rented equipment. Some technical equipment like boots, crampons, climbing harness and ice-axe can be rented from us if climbing from the South side. For Mt. Elbrus North Route you need to have the full list of all the necessary equipment.
