And a few words about the route from Nadezhda Oleneva:
“I wanted to climb it by a female rope team; it was a challenge for us. The route runs on a high, absolutely vertical wall.
In addition to the complexity of the terrain lack of big ledges makes a problem for the organization of overnight stay; there is no opportunity to place the tent. Usually, climbers do such routes with a portaledge. But we decided to take a slightly different way and brought our hammocks.
It was a new and exciting experience. The feeling of being on the wall does not leave you even at night and waking up in the morning, the first thing you see is a thin streak of dawn over the tops of the mountains.”
