A message from our friends from Vento company:
Today (23.10) at 9 o'clock Nepalese time, Alexey Lonchinsky and Yuri Koshelenko made the first ascent to the summit of Rolwaling Kang Shar. The original version of the descent was abandoned, because: "the ridge is solid hollow snow, even it was not easy to get out to the top, and it was almost impossible to continue further."
During the daylight hours they managed to get down to the glacier and pass the crack zone. Then there was a simple descent to the base camp.
Alexey Lonchinsky and Yuri Koshelenko are among the best climbers in the World, repeatedly awarded with various "Golden Ice axes", champions of Russia. Alexey is a leading methodist coach at the 7 Summits Club. He manages all the training mountaineering camps that our company conducts. Yuri Koshelenko also worked as a guide in the 7 Summits Club company.
