Elbrus is a unique mountain. While it is easy to ascend, it is not always easy to descend. Elbrus is often unpredictable, the weather forecasts being deceptive. If a cloud "cap" is formed over the peaks, then do not meddle in it! Often a clam sets in over the col from 15:00 to 17:00 hours and after sunset begins the hurricane wind.
Elbrus is also shrouded in mystery. From the old-timers, one can hear horror stories about “a wicked mountain climber" and an Elbrus maiden, who tricks the climbers. It is quite possible that there exists something like the Bermuda Triangle, where the entire groups disappear without a trace. Though the issue lies not only in mystery, but also the reasons, which we shall describe you below in our article >>>.
