Summit Photos Submitted As Proof Of Reaching Summit
At www.russianclimb.com/stangl_record.html self-taken summit photo is given as per submission from Stangl.

No part of the summit is shown.
No summit surface.
No relevant features of the summit or summit background.
Nothing can be distinguished about Elbrus's summit or Elbrus at all from the self-taken summit photo.

One analysis is image has been cropped.

Reportedly from Stangl at various news links above, wind was quite extreme, note also googles in his picture with face coverage.

GPS LOG, Verification Claim
At www.russianclimb.com/stangl_record.html and climbing online article a report is given Stangl had his "ascent was verified by a GPS log" and "He verified the ascent by GPS Track Log."

Many/most believe his TIME was verified by the GPS. Not so. He claims his CLIMB only was verified by the GPS log. That he made it to the summit, started in a particular place, and took a particular route.

Many requests for this log have been made. Awaiting.

Elbrus Race
www.elbrusspeedclimb.com There was a race on Elbrus last year and one to be held soon this year. Stangl didn't compete in last years. Uncertain if he will take part this year. Doing an Elbrus speedclimb is a big project. Doubts he'll do another one in the race later this summer, having to travel back to Georgia Russia, the money and time and so on.

Team Kilimanjaro Disputed Stangl's 2004 Kilimanjaro Record Claim
http://www.teamkilimanjaro.com/christianstangl.html
For a record of major importance Stangl couldn't simply provide the time of day he started his climb. Yet this record of his was used to claim to beat a Kili record by a great Federation For Sport At Altitude athlete Bruno Brunod. Major press ensued.
