Here’s a pleasant question to consider: What is the world’s worst outhouse?

There’s a lot of nasty places out there in the world to do your daily business. I can think of one toilet in the Paris subway that I went in…well I try not to think of it. But for climbers, the privy at Pruitt Hut on Mount Elbrus in Russia is considered pants down to be the absolute most disgusting outhouse at high altitude.

Read this new article about Mount Elbrus, the highest mountain in Europe and one of theSeven Summits, and its crappy outhouse…then make plans for your own ascent. Don’t forget the toilet paper!
