We are glad to inform you about the results of large expedition to the Mount Elbrus, which started on April 29 with the support of «FreshForex». A group of professionals from the «I'm Siberian» team achieved the highest point of Europe! The team of Siberian climbers made a traverse climbing to Elbrus in order to put a flag, consisting of thousands of photos - members of the expedition, including the «FreshForex» company's customers.
More than 2,000 people have conquered the 5642 meters above sea level height. Сlimbers dedicated the achievement to the Victory Day and the anniversary of withdrawal of German standards from Caucasus peaks. The conquest of the two peaks: western peak - 5642 m and eastern peak - 5621 m, took 12 days.
«We have chosen the more difficult rout. This is a traverse climbing through the north slope of Mount Elbrus, two of its vertices. These routes do not exceed 2% of the total number of climbs» - Ivan Zazdravnih, head of the expedition, says.
It was not easy to conquer Mount Elbrus - the weather was raging, the communication got broken abruptly, but Siberians were supported by thousands of people, so despite all the difficulties, participants kept a good mood and achieved their aim!
We suggest you to watch the course of the expedition:
