gang settling in at Tryskol
Tryskol Valley touchdown
15 July 2005
We arrived here after what proved to be a long drawn out travel day. 3 hour flight, followed by a 3 hour bus ride saw us to this beautiful valley we are now in, right at the base of the mountain. This is expedition life in style! Clouds hang low in the valley and there is a bit of a chill in the air but this does nothing to dampen our spirits for tomorrows climb up Mt. Cheget.
After a quick steam in this chalet's world famous sauna, the team settled in for a quick bite of dinner, meeting up with Alexander our Russian team member, and then heading off to pack for tomorrow's adventures. So stay tuned as we get the 2005 Elbrus season kicked off bright and early tomorrow!
