Intrepid PC gamers host DOOM LAN-party on Mt. Elbert

Tek Syndicate, Austin Evans, Newegg, and Linus Media Group one day decided they wanted to break the world record for the “highest altitude terrestrial LAN-party”. Which mountain did they choose? Why, Mt. Elbert of course.

In the video below, the team talks about the trip, the tech they used, and there’s also footage of the guys climbing to the summit, where the LAN-party was held.

If you are thinking: “bah! it’s just the summit,” know that the altitude is 14,461 feet. I can barely make it up a small incline.

The official video from Tek Syndicate is below and more videos of the excursion are posted on the official website.
