Tourists "Amber" informally in the framework of the campaigns already done in 1974, climbing to Lenin peak in 1978 to the peak of Communism. Another top-seven thousand drew their eyes to himself. Peak Korzhenevskaya is the fourth highest peak of the Soviet Union (7105 m). It is located in the North-Western Pamir, in the North-Western tip of the ridge of Academy of Sciences. the Desire was to pass a beautiful route through the Pamir glaciers, and passes, and at the end of the route to climb to the top. But not just turned out as planned. Pamir attracted by its beauty, Majesty. Its severity and the gravity it showed immediately – gave time to assess the danger. Two years of attempts. In 1987 two members still climbed to the top of Korzhenevskoy.
Not long ago I read on the "Risk" ( https://www.risk.ru/blog/215345 ) on the first and the last descent by paraglider L. Martynova from the peak of Communism in 1991 year, and I feel like I got electrocuted. "But I have photos of that flight and not only flight!". In July-August of that year I had a chance to join the "Three peaks of the USSR" in the team, the personnel of which you can see in the pictures in the text. I used to think that nothing much to share with the readers of "Risk" this month, held in the Pamirs, no. But after reading about the last flight (before the collapse of the USSR) and a small revaluation by the time I digitized the slides of the climbing and I would venture to say .

Here and further, the material archive photo of Pierre Bischoff Six brave and very hardy riders came out this summer at the start of the Red Bull Trans-Siberian Extreme in Moscow. 24 days later some of them received congratulations at the finish in Vladivostok. Another month and a half later we met in the capital with the winner of the race - Pierre Bishopton, who chose not the most trivial way home... he told this at a press conference! As the story was interesting and sometimes with humor, and Russia Pierre liked published the story in the form in which we heard him at a meeting organized by Red Bull.
Foto s interneta Dim the sun illuminated the day this ruined city, which sadly wandered lonely survivors and residents, lost and without a smile on their faces. The strength to grieve for the victims family they didn't have. On a road roadside in a row, standing of mobile cranes, in the cabins which slept the beyond tired operators-drivers, and between the roads were ruins of houses. Above the city stood the stench from the dead bodies. the Stench grew stronger with each passing day, because the dead have decomposed, as they had been laid by nature.
Background. I got into this wonderful company can say casually. All because of a book of Boris Abramov “Notes to the climbing doctor” which had to come to Nikita Stepanov. I was offered tea, I said Yes... So we started this relationship, in which an invitation was received to the Pilaf. Of course, I did not give up. After two weeks after Pilaf, listening to my childhood memories about the meeting, Nikita suddenly asked me to try to write this article. At the same time, he said, will be trained to publish at Risk. I was plagued by vague doubts, but in the end (thank you for your trust!) I decided to try it.

On Madagascar we travelled a month, drove 5 thousand kilometers, killed one car, nagladili and fed more than a dozen lemurs, saved suddenly a sick friend, and even looked at the local funeral.
To commit to writing the article forced Orgy that is going on in the market of services on organization of commercial climbing and mountain means of tracking. The impression that anyone who is able to carry a backpack and a Bunsen burner ready to act as a mountain guide and drive customers to the mountain. But not the so-called "firms" that stand behind them, nor the visit is not ready to be responsible for anything. And how to protect yourself from it, health and even life, I did not understand, neither the Treaty nor a recommendation, nor regalia guide nothing, as it turned out to be worthless.

At the beginning of October ended the expedition company "Makalu Extreme" to Manaslu. Our team is almost at full strength, climbed to the top and down safely. It was my first and last eight-thousander, since there, on the mountain, suddenly found himself came to the decision that in future I want to spend more time with the closest people – parents, wife, children, grandchildren. Them I much more than mountains. And the mountains... the Mountains will always remain in my heart. I have completed what started almost 40 years ago, with a 30-year break starting a family and raising children. And now about the unpleasant. This post is about one ugly incident that occurred after the ascension in the village with quite remarkable for the Russian ear name...
Better than mountains can be only mountains... but there is still Everest. / Photo from the archive of the source. to Climb the legendary Mountain of “their company” to do on their own and save on the most expensive commercial climbing world – and that's an option? the Author and project Manager “Everest-2021” Oleg Afanasyev – experienced climber, on account of which the highest peak of the Earth is already there. For three years he is going to form a team of experienced athletes and climbers, “infected hand” to after a series of training climbs and fees to climb Everest from the Nepalese side. We asked Oleg about the intricacies of the project, the style of climbing, “team of friends” (and friends?) and, of course, about the mountains...

And while a little (a lot) photos-impressions from me and the official photographers Ladek Mountain Festival trail event which every year transforms the tiny town of lądek-zdrój outdoorsy in the buzzing hive!!!
The Coast of the Kara sea. Blizzard. Two staggering under the blows of the wind, make their way to the village, its contours are already visible, the device shows a mile. The wind furiously throws in the face of prickly snowflakes, but the smile is visible even from under the mask covering the face from wind, cold breath. To calm the soul and light. Behind hundred of kilometers along the cold beaches of the Northern seas - the Barents and Kara seas. Rocky coast which until the end of days will remain in the memory, disturbing nights of the soul cold austere beauty. In my head spinning poems Kalugin , a very pronounced sound, and maybe it's the Blizzard sings...
