Fenix HP11 "Conquered" the Highest Peak in Europe-Mount Elbrus

Publish Time:2012-12-19

Mount Elbrus is an extinct volcano located in the western Caucasus mountain range with an elevation of 5642meters and it is the highest peak in the Caucasus mountain range, Russia and also the highest mountain in Europe.
Last Month, nine climbers and one instructor from Ukraine wearing Fenix HP11 successfully reached the peak and saw the splendid scenery after overcoming various difficulties.
Ten of them began the long trek from the city of Pyatigorsk in Russia.
Above 3300 meters, there was no vegetation-only stones sprinkled with snow, making the climbing more difficult.
After two days' training, the climbers arrived at the asylum "Eleven" at 17:00 p.m., then the weather began to be bad and the temperature started to drop rapidly. Four of them decided to climb the snowcat to go up to the height of 4800. And they reached it at 01:21 a.m., the rest of climbers got there on 3:40 a.m.
During the night climbing, Fenix HP11 helped a lot with its light weight and easy adjustment.
Around 08:00 a.m., they arrived in the "saddle" of Elbrus with an altitude of 5300 meters. 

About 10:00a.m., they began to go downhill. It took about 5 hours to go downhill, plus 9 hours for going uphill, so it took them a total of 15 hours to finish the climbing.
