They say that the climb is very tiring. First group headed for Elbrus at 01:00 and the second at 03:00. They had clear skies, but it was very cold and windy. On the top is - 25 degrees. The snow was harder and good for walking, and using our equipment made us feel safe. 

But, the teen air and the stormy wind near Elbrus forced the mountaineers to move very slowly and keep listening for the beeps of life signals. The members of the expedition from Nis arrived to the top and back in 12 to 18 hours.

"We had no problems, even do we were witnesses of many people collapsing due to height sickness". They were taken down by snowmobile. This expedition showed that Zoran Pavlovic Paca is the best guide in Serbia, wrote on their Facebook the mountaineers of the "Zeleznicar" club from Nis.

Few passionate people and few mountaineering clubs from Macedonia that love mountains participated in conquering the pinnacle of Europe.
