Climbers: Alexander Marinkevich, Alexander Abramov and Lyudmila Korobeshko.
Another man, of our instructor, the trainer of Club Alexander Lastochkin came to the starting pount. But, as you know, the faster and more mobile is rope with three. In the end, Lastochkin chose climbing on a Red Stone.

We completed the route in 4 hours. The difference of about 200 m, 9 pitches..

Hello! This Alexander Abramov from the Crimea. Today, a large group of 7 Summits Club climbed to the highest point of the Crimea Mount Roman-Kosh. Our ascent was timed to the anniversary of the wedding of Alexander Abramov and Ludmila Korobeshko. With us on the mountain were: our son Maxim Abramov, a well-known expert in the Crimea Eugene Ochkin with friends, veteran of our Club Vladimir Pushkarev with his daughter ...

We enjoyed this climb. The difference in height was more than a kilometer, heavy, long walk. Of course, not technically difficult, but physically quite demanding. Around 2 p.m., our team was at the top of Roman Kosh, the highest peak of the Crimea. From there, we enjoyed wonderful views of the plateau to the sea. It was the first stage of our program “the Mountain School of the 7 Summits Club in Crimea”.

Roman Kosh - the highest point of the Crimean Mountains, altitude - 1545 meters above sea level. It is located on a plateau Babugan near Gurzuf, opposite the Ayu-Dag Mountain.

More than ten participants gathered for this autumn trip on rocks. By the way, we plan to make it as a tradition. Most of the participants - are active members of our club and constantly involved in our expeditions.

The Captain of Club Alex Abramov leads the program personally. Early this morning he flew to Simferopol. Most of the participants were already at that time in the Crimea, they arrived a little earlier. Alex was delayed due to the participation in the demonstration of the film "Everest". Immediately upon arrival, he began his work, immediately went to the rocks with the guys to train, train and train again!
