We Don’t Climb Mountains Alone

Phil, my husband, was our leader on Mt. Elbrus in Russia and Igor, his partner and friend, was our Russian guide. The first few days preparing for our attempt on Elbrus we spent time acclimatizing and training in the Caucasus Mountains. Amazing how expert guides can teach us strong skills and techniques that help us reach the summit and keep us as safe as possible. Honestly, we don’t climb high mountains alone!
