EB DUTCH ELBRUS - 2005 EXPEDITIONS

In July - August we served two Dutch groups organized by Edward Bekker Ski & Alpinisme. Mr. Edward Bekker and four our mountain guides and guide-assistants - Mrs. Marina Ershova, Mr. Pavel Zarezin, Mrs. Alexandra Sak and Mr. Viktor Ershov - worked with our Dutch groups in the Caucasus. Nice weather and good work of the guides allowed all our clients to reach the summit of Mt. Elbrus on August 1 and August 15. Some of our clients climbed both summits of Mt. Elbrus - the Western (5642 m) and the Eastern (5622 m)!

Edward Bekker: Elbrus was very good and Marina & Co did a great job again.
