Tactical team movements
This route is accessible only in winter, in summer it is real stonefalling danger!
February 21 we ascended to koron night places, made boot track for the route and in the evening party of two Terentyev - Alexandrov worked out bergshrund in three hours and three ice pitches.
February 22 – route continuation. Party of two Zakrep – Stepanov worked ahead. Made 4 pitches (till section № 5). Two vertical rocky levels were especially difficult, (sections 1 - 2, and 3 - 4) 20 meters each. The upper part of the section is an abrupt, about 80°, ice-covered gully-chimney.
February 24. Party of two Balezin – Alexandrov led. They worked out four pitches of the upper part of the wall and went to the roof, (point 11) The night spent in the same place, in a platform.
February 25. Party of two Stepanov - Balezin led. Against our wishes the roof was very difficult, rocks were ice coverd and covered with snow. That day three and a half pitches were passed, 30 meters before the ridge. Ad interim the rest of the team take off the platform and carried it up, to section № 13, and installed it in 2 pitches below the ridge, under the cornice in the base of the abrupt corner.
Along the whole length of the route a leader went on double rope only, the second and the last went along the lines with the belay, and on especially rockfall dangerous sections all the ascenders had an additional belay. Main belay points were made in at least 3 places (nuts, pins or bolts), blocked with local loop, a block was made in the middle of lines.
Winter tactics was used in the ascent, in its base were comfortable nights, and working out the route was made from them. A tent-platform is moved from one safe and convenient place to another while ascending. This tactics allows to improve ascent safety, because party of two can descend along the lines to their tent any time, or to call party of four for help.
Diring the ascent a rescue team and observers were staying under the wall: Arhipov V. - MASTER OF SPORTS, and members of another team who returned back: Railko Yu. -candidate to Master of Sports, Karukin I. - candidate to Master of Sports, Obednin К . -MASTER OF SPORTS, Hvostenko О .- I degree. Glazurin Yu. - I degree, and Muravyev V - candidate to Master of Sports, doctor. Radio communication was regular.
On the route all modern gear was used. For rock belay nuts were used, pins were placed only when it was impossible to use nuts all the bolts were portable and weren't left on the route.
The team had enough fuel and food on the route. There were no fallings, frostbites on the route, in spite of the fact that we continued to ascend in bad weather.
