2013 inscribed very dark page in the history of mountaineering: in Pakistan, at the foot of the mountain Nanga Parbat terrorists shot 10 climbers from different countries. Among them three were from Ukraine, from the city of Kharkiv, one of which, Igor Svergun was a close friend of our Club. We honor his memory. In December in Kharkov they published a book about Igor and his friends. Now you can buy it in our Club (Bolshaya Pereyaslavskaya street, the house 7, 2nd floor).

 

 

It should be noted that it is a charitable project and all funds received from the realization of the project will be transferred to a family of Igor Svergun.
