Dear AUCA community!
Development Office invites you to participate at the meet-up with @eduard_kubatov , the man who conquered Everest, highest peak in the world.
Mount Everest became the fifth summit in his program. Before that, he had already climbed the Aconcagua peak in South America, Elbrus in Europe, Mount Kostsyushko - the highest point of Australia, as well as Kilimanjaro in Africa. “For any climber, Everest is the highest point, it's like the Olympic Games or the World Championship for an athlete,” he says.
Eduard plans to conquer seven peaks "Seven Summits" the highest mountains of each of the seven continents. Climbing to the summit of all of them is regarded as a mountaineering challenge, first achieved in 1985.
