On July 28, 2021, Gazprom Nedra LLC employees climbed the highest mountain peak in Russia and Europe — Elbrus, located in the North Caucasus. Eight company representatives climbed Elbrus along the northern route, which demands belaying skills and excellent physical fitness. The participants of the ascent began their journey from the base camp on July 24, making acclimatisation hikes and gradually overcoming the difficulties of severe weather conditions.
