Mountaineering School Appeared in the Northern Urals

The school of mountaineering has appeared in the Northern Urals and will begin to work this November. Experienced instructors are going to teach everyone to use rock climbing equipment – tourist will learn how to tie knots, to work with an ice pick and to climb down cliffs. 

      Visitors will be divided into two groups according to the age – from 14 to 18 and from 18 to 60. All graduates will get the certificate and the badge “The Alpinist of Russia”.

      The school is going to be located at the camp site “Serebryansky Kamen” - the theory will be taught there. Future climbers will be able to apply their skills and even to make the first ascent of the 1305 meter mountain “Serebryansky Kamen”. The climbing route category is 1B (“moderate”). The camp site is situated to the north of Yekaterinburg and 43 km from Karpinsk.

      Russia already operates several schools, dedicated to active rest like mountain snowmobiling (Kola Peninsula school) and ice climbing (Baikal school).
