Today we opened a new rocky route called "Alex" on Mount Shan-Kaya in Crimea.  Our guide Sasha Marinkevich and his team equipped, probably, the easiest route on, probably, the most difficult rocky face of Crimea.

The route leads  along the left ridge of the mountain. The difficult of the pitches  is up to 6A-6B. Probably an even simpler route  named "Lucy" will be equipped by the next fall. Thank you creators!
