 In Crimea, we continue training for high-altitude climbing.  We have three groups at the same time. Mikhail Turovsky, Alex Abramov and Natasha Kartashova try the via ferrata on the Ilyas-Kaya. The route of extraordinary beauty, a series of quite flat sections turns into an overhanging walls. We have to sweat, strong wind knocks down, but we fight!

September 22. Day 20 of the Manaslu expedition of the 7 Summits Club. In the morning we hardly dug up - the whole night it was snowing and by morning the whole camp was covered by 20-30 centimeters.

At breakfast we congratulated Luda Isakova -  Happy birthday!  And then we decided to wait with the start - hoping the snow stops. However, the snow kept falling. Moreover, it turned out that the fixed ropes were not fixed even to the Camp 4. The Sherpas team left in the morning, but turned around before reaching Camp 4.

Taking into account the absence of a prepared route and avalanche danger after snowfall, we decided to postpone the exit for climb for another day.

Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club:

 7 Summits, Hello!  This is Alexander Abramov from Crimea. Last year, enthusiasts from Sevastopol made an excellent via Ferrata here. I recommend everyone go through it. It is 2.3 km on the rocks, sometimes vertical. We decided to include this route in the mandatory schedule of our Mountain school for training in the Crimea. Special thanks to Yuri Kruglov, who created this Wonder of the World!
