Mt. Elbrus: Grom & Team Summit Highest Point in Europe!

Posted by: Casey Grom | July 13, 2013

Elevation: 18,510'

We did it!

The whole team managed to stand on the highest point in Europe this morning. Everyone did a fantastic job of taking care of themselves and pushed hard in the thin air. It was a beautiful day for sure, in fact it was the nicest summit on Elbrus I’ve had. Not too cold and just the slightest breeze.

We spent about a half hour on top then quickly descended all the way back to the Barrels. After a quick lunch, we packed up and made our way back down to Cheget to our hotel where everyone ran for the first shower in days.

The team is doing great and are looking forward to some much earned sleep.

Great job.  Jennifer a better idea would be to go to the roof of a six floor apt building in Brighton Beach and wave a flag.  Top of the world to you.  You are awesome.  Love you Neilion
