Elbrus By Any Means: An Unconventional Ascent of Europe's Highest Mountain

Mark Horrell boards a cable car at the village of Azau, a ski resort in the Baksan Valley on the southern side of Elbrus, the first of many forms of transport he takes across both summits as he traverses the mountain to its wilder northern side.

This is the humorous account of an unusual ascent of Europe's highest mountain, and will appeal to anyone with a total disregard for cheating. More

About Mark Horrell

For five years I have been writing what has been described as one of the most credible Everest opinion blogs out there. I write about trekking and mountaineering from the often silent perspective of the commercial client.

For over a decade I have been exploring the world’s greater mountain ranges and keeping a diary of my travels. As a writer I strive to do for mountain history what Bill Bryson did for long-distance hiking.

Several of my expedition diaries are available as quick reads from the major online bookstores. My first full-length book, Seven Steps from Snowdon to Everest, about my ten-year journey from hill walker to Everest climber, will be published in December 2015 and is available now to pre-order.

My favourite mountaineering book is The Ascent of Rum Doodle by W.E. Bowman.
