At the May holidays in the Elbrus region is crowded:

Red Fox Company and Russian Mountaineering Federation with the support of Emercom of Russia, Government of the Republic of Kabardino-Balkaria and International Skyrunning Federation conduct VI International festival Red Fox Elbrus Race on May 3-11, 2014.

The competition will take place on the Elbrus peak, the highest top of the Europe and the most popular Russian mountain region.

For several years the Festival Red Fox Elbrus Race with two races of the Russian National Series (Elbrus Vertical SkyMarathon® and Elbrus Vertical Kilometer®) is one of the central events in the skyrunning world. Elbrus Vertical Kilometer® and Elbrus Vertical SkyMarathon® were included in Skyrunner® World Series and the 50 World Ranking races of 2013 year. The best mountaineers, skiers and multisportsmen from all over the world come to participate in the Festival.

Last year the Red Fox Elbrus Race distinguished by the record established by the Italian skyrunner Marco Facchinelli in the main event of the Festival. The athlete overcame the very hard distance with height more than 3000 meters difference from Azau's glade to the West Elbrus Peak only in 3 hours 30 minutes. And the ordinary person needs not less than 1 day to carry out the same route.

But more than likely this record will be broken in the Festival Red Fox Elbrus Race 2014. Even now the desire to participate in the most high-altitude race of the world was expressed by many leaders of international skyrunning.

Our first group is on the route for several days with a local guide . They set up a second camp at an altitude of about 3800 meters. A first camp on the route was at an altitude of 2800m. This is due to the large amount of snow this season, the movement is slower than usual. Yet May 1 the group may reach the top.

On this day, May 1, a new group of 7 Summits Club arrives in the city of Van. It will be 7 person team, the youngest participant - 16 years . Group will climb under leadership of a guide of 7 Summits Club Artem Rostovtsev - known multisportsmen , one of the hardiest people in our country.

Today our group climbed to the top of Huayna Potosi (6088 m it seems).

Leaving the beaches of Titicaca, we quickly got to the base camp of Huayna Potosi . Base camp - it's very cozy hut , around which there is roam herds of llamas and alpacas .

But then there we had a few days before climbing . Easy walks, ice class, the ascent to the upper camp ... We were doing everything for acclimatization, and it went as best as possible . Although of course it was not always easy.

But in the end, today, our whole group was on top of this beautiful mountain, which has absolutely stunning crest.

We can not say that the ascent was simple. But we did it. And as a reward - in the evening in La Paz we celebrated his first victory.
