Going on multi-day winter hike, you need to choose tents that can be purchased in the center of ekipirovochnom "AGE". the Winter tent can be equipped with a stove or gas heater, where to dry clothes and shoes.

Wilderness Medical Society (WMS) or the Society of medicine of wild conditions – medical organization dedicated to the issues of organization of care, that is, in the wild, in the mountains, in the forest, desert and other settings, in some degree remote from civilization. One of the parties of its activity is the creation and production of science-based practical guidance on actual medical problems with regard to wildlife. These guides generally reflect the existing modern point of view of evidence-based medicine. In 2019 was published updates to all manuals, previously with the new obtained scientific data.
Heated tent at night (i.e., during sleep) at low temperatures relevant in cases where thermal insulation properties of the sleeping bag largely do not correspond to the temperature of the air in the tent (half asleep in the "patiently waiting for the dawn"). Or when accumulated over several days of cold, fatigue begins to affect the well-being in the daytime. Heated single tents in field conditions has a number of features due to its size. Thus, the heating device must be safe in terms of carbon monoxide, as well as having small size and low fuel consumption, good stability or support fixture to the ceiling, low fire hazard. However, note that the use of heaters during sleep implies the cessation of control over these devices.
It is Psychologically very difficult to go through difficult passes near the tops, which are "at hand" and not go to the top. Pursuing tourism as the sport, rating the hikes in difficulty, tourists have invented all sorts of artificial "passes", for example, "pass" between two peaks of Elbrus, "pass" through the plateau of Truth near the peak of Communism and even seem to "pass" through the saddle between the two peaks of Ushba. The development of such passes has a large and technically difficult part of climbing the mountain. However, tourists tops are prohibited. Bans are bypassed as they can: for example, include in the route "exit to the panoramic point for photographing", or just to climb on the sly, away from prying eyes, greatly increasing the risk...

My first free solo. the Desire to write this article appeared in the beginning of 2019, after a conversation with Catlica – boyfriend stormed into a climbing party of St. Petersburg. By the time he was only two years old, but already showed good results and was training as an athlete. Here I mean that he is not lazy to do all kinds of physical fitness, which I never got around. We went from climbing the night Peter, and he told how come to the climbing, and I remembered funny stories from those times when I was starting to climb. When they didn't category, and adventure.

Route to North Ushba from the Ushba plateau, on the North East crest (4A) is now very popular, it is called "classic", but last summer I was surprised to find that not everyone knows the story of his passing. Some young climbers assumed it was a large team, provesiv hundreds of meters of rope, and was surprised to hear that the route Autonomous deuce Chisel-Aleynikov in 1935 in pure Alpine style. And they cut steps in the ice! I Wonder what Cisely at that time was 22 years, and the first mountain-climbing lessons he received at Abalakova three years earlier.
