Good news!

20 April 2013

With the snowfall of the last few days, slightly increasing temperatures and less wind on the mountain, the ice above Pastukhov Rocks (4500 m) is now totally covered. Now it is possible to climb to the summit without fix ropes, just using crampons and ice axe. Using skis for ascent and descent above this mark is still not very safe, due to the small snow cover on the ice, but the fresh snow predicted during the next week will probably improve the situation. This gives us a very good season start, and hopefully all groups intending to climb with skis will be able to do so!
