Their feat is about to be recorded in the Guinness Book of World
Records…and indeed it is truly a triumph of the human spirit.
Five disabled people, four in wheelchairs and one on crutches,
have staged a successful assault on the highest peak in the
Caucusus mountains. Four of the five climbers, and a team
accompanying them, made it to the 5,047 meter summit of Mount
Kazbek on October 11. The peak is the highest ever climbed by
disabled people.
