'Alpari: On Top of the World' – 6 Mountains Down, 1 to Go

Publication Date: November 14, 2012

Dear Clients,

Maxim, Lyudmila and Ivan at 2,228 m

On November 5, 2012, Team Alpari took down Mount Kosciuszko (pronounced KOS-CHOOS-KO, 2,228 m), the highest mountain in Australia and the sixth of the seven mountains they need to complete the Seven Summits challenge (climbing the tallest mountain on each continent). As per usual, our team avoided taking the standard route, where you can take a chair lift part of the way up. They instead chose to begin their climb from Dead Horse Gap.

For the team, it’s safe to say that the travel was more challenging than the climb was. The flight from Moscow to Sydney was 17 hours long, crossing 7 time zones. All in all, the team spent 40 hours getting to and from the mountain; a significant hassle if not a challenge. It took Lyudmila Korobeshko, Ivan Dusharin and Maxim Shakirov a total of 5 days to complete Stage 6 of "Alpari: On Top of the World". After working their way through fields of snow and strong winds, our team unfurled the Alpari flag atop the summit of Kosciuszko.

Mount Kosciuszko Is Ours!

There’s only one obstacle standing in the way of our team and a new world record: Antarctica’s Vinson Massif. The final stage of "Alpari: On Top of the World" begins December 1. Stay tuned.
