Romanian teen climbs Africa’s highest volcano

A Romanian girl aged 14 achieved a big performance. On June 7, Crina Coco Popescu – a member of ‘Clubul Montan Altitudine’ mountain club in Rasnov – climbed Africa’s highest point, Uhuru Peak – Kilimanjaro, at 5,896 meters, Antena 3 reports. The team of the ‘Kilimanjaro 2009’ expedition set up by ‘Club Montan Altitudine’ also included Ovidiu Popescu and Doctor Nicolae Scurtu, together with the teenager alpinist. Crina Popescu thus climbed the third peak of a series named ‘Seven Volcanoes,’ which includes the highest volcanoes on each continent. The young alpinist already conquered the world’s highest volcano, Ojos del Salado (6,891 m) and the highest peak of the two Americas, Aconcagua (6,929 m). The next peak the Romanian team wants to climb is Elbrus (5,643 m) – the highest in Europe.
