Denis Savel'ev reports. "We finally descended"
"After two days of bad weather we managed to summit the Wall and exhausted and drowned like rat we finally descended to
our "native" camping.
Unfortunately, we did not climb the entire "Baltic" route as could not find an exit after the hanging bastion. Due to
this we made the decision to continue on the Norwegian route. We are not very tragic about that :)
In the result, the logical line of more than 40 pitches is opened: 1200n, 6b +, А3.
All our epopee lasted ten days and ten nights".
And a little more details about the climb.
"Finally we managed to summit! Banzai!
At last we are able to sleep without self-belay and go on both legs. Everyone finds oneself perfect.

The summit access presented continuous traverses.
For our ten day round wall trip only a retrieving rope left safe. The others were made of 2-3 knots in places of torn

spend the night right there in stones as could not find the descent route. The next morning the following surprise waited
for us: planned two hours of descent turned into a ten-hour campaign on moraines. More importantly we had the wit to send
forward a guy to rent a vehicle.
In the evening all the camping met us with a hurricane of applause. It appears all the ten days they steadfastly watched
us and even placed their bets.
In general, we appeared in the center of attention! Even we were treated with pancakes baked to our returning. There were
a lot of messages on reception with kind wishes even from the guys from Saint Petersburg. And now we are waiting for a
planned small banquet (a base-jumper that had shot us on the wall during his jump promised to come) and rest and once
