TERSKOL, RUSSIA – Before we headed to Russia to make our ongoing attempt to climb Mt. Elbrus, we stopped by Hong Kong for two days, and we had the opportunity to climb Ma On Shan, which was recommended to me by several friends including Steve White of Action Asia, who graciously met with our group when we went outdoor shopping in Mong Kok.
