Turner Twins - Telic Elbrus Camp

The First Step On A Journey

Just received great image from The Turner Twins where they used our Telic Slide footwear at their various camps on route to and up Mt Elbrus.- 5,642m (18,510ft). The Turner Twins success on Mt Elbrus will be the first mountaineering objective to prepare the twins’ for high altitude and the overall goal of climbing Mt Cho Oyu - standing at 8,201m (26,906 ft).

The twins’ will be testing the traditional clothing and equipment used by mountaineers around 100 years ago and comparing it against today’s modern mountaineering equivalent. King’s College London’s, Department of Twin Research and GlaxoSmithKline’s, Human Performance Lab will be conducting research on them to better understand the effects of high altitude on the human body to advance medical knowledge.
