Terskol Climbing Notes

Alex from RUSSIAN FEDERATION writes:

I think it's possible, but depends on weather which is beginning worse this time. The latest month I reached summit was first part of September. But my friends did it even in winter.

For Russian citizens admit is free (according to the law) in spite of local authorities who try to get money almost every year until the first letter from Moscow prosecutor's office.

As for foreign citizens, I don't have any information. But at least it existed in 2006.

That's all I know. Good Luck on Elbrus - it's gorgeous place! :-)
