This July, over a 12 day period, James Ritchie (e 12) will be attempting to summit Mount Elbus, Europe’s highest mountain and one of the Seven Summits. At 5,642 m (18,510ft) it is the tenth most prominent mountain in the world and is located in the Caucasus Mountains on the Russian/Georgian border.
James is hoping to raise £10,00 for Brain Research UK
James is now almost 6 months into his training for what will be an extremely testing physical and mental challenge. You can follow his progress and training updates on:
