Strange story about a bid to put a Land Rover on the summit of Elbrus. From what I can see they went to the East summit - it's unclear if they went to the west. Either way, it's still up there somewhere at 5400m. I didn't see it up there but then again we had a whiteout...  ;D  Anyone know any more about this?
