Report on the ascent on Demavend from Valery Myasoedov
Salom az Tehran!
On June 15, at 11.30, “Teheran-19” team stood at the top of Demavand. We got it in exactly 7 hours, as planned. Weather us favored, this was the best morning over the past 3-4 days. In the upper third, we froze a little from the strong wind, but got the stored down jackets, and the problem was solved. Cloud whirl near the top turned out to be emissions of sulfur dioxide, it makes an impression! ... Well, that West wind will carry the greater part of the accumulations to the side…
And the top!...
We chose the option to go down by snowy slopes, using stashed crampons. It's faster and safer!
On the same day we ran to the bottom, to the mosque, and from there - to Polur at 2200 m. It was hard, but we really wanted to be down.
We spent a night in Polur, and in the morning we received traditional congratulations and certificates from the Federation of mountaineering of Iran.
