Collection of the best mountaineering routes of Kamchatka in one climbing program: Kluchevskaya sopka + Kamen + Shiveluch + Krestovsky.

This program is an unique set of the most interesting volcanoes climbs in the Kamchatka Peninsula, compactly assembled in one climbing program. The principle on which we selected these routes is “all the best in one place and at one time”. The program includes the truly “most” volcanoes of the famous peninsula in the Russian Far East: the highest volcano in Kamchatka - Kluchevskaya, which is almost 5000 meters high, the most active volcano in Kamchatka - Shiveluch, which practically never stops erupting, the most technically complicated volcano in Kamchatka - Kamen which is a worthy alpine climbing mountain by its difficulties comparable with the classic climbing routes of the Alps or Caucasus. The fourth volcano added to this unique program is Krestovsky volcano - with its relatively low altitude and technical complexity, it is the most beautifully located volcano in the Kluchevskaya volcano group. Krestovsky volcano is ideal place to enjoy the unique view of all the most significant volcanoes of Kamchatka from one point!

This climbing program, with all its complexity and demanding to the level of physical training and the previous mountain climbing experience, is the quintessence of the Kamchatka climbing - an opportunity in the shortest time to get the maximum impressions and emotions from climbing the unique natural objects - active volcanoes.

From a set of mountaineering ascents “Kamchatka Fire Diadem - Kluchi”, only one volcano, Kamen, has the medium level of technical climbing complexity, it has an approximate difficulty AD, which requires from the participants to have advanced level of climbing experience and physical training. The remaining volcanoes are not difficult in the terms of the steepness of the slopes and the presence of climbing obstacles, however, by the intensity of the physical load and its nature (very large altitude changes during ascents) they are truly serious mountain climbing events.

This 19-day program "Climbing Kluchevskaya Sopka, Kamen, Shiveluch and Krestovsky" is designed for people who have previous experience in the climbing mountains of the basic and medium level of technical difficulty and maintain their fitness at the level high enough to take part in the serious autonomic climbing expedition. As a technical and physical preparation for the participation in the “Kamchatka Fire Diadem - Kluchi” climbing program, it is recommended to complete the “Ice Climbing in Norway” training course at least six months before participating in this program.

The First Principle of MCS AlexClimb
The First Rule, by which we are guided in the development of our mountain programs - is safety. Professional Guides lead the group, the highest quality certificated equipment and the most modern navigation equipment are used. This guarantees the highest possible level of your safety in the mountains, which is the most important side of our work. As for Kamchatka programs - in addition to our climbing safety issues, the armed ranger accompanies the group to protect participants from too close contact with the wild life.

Our Principles

AlexClimb Rule #1 - Safety First

From the very beginning of our activity, here nearly 16 years, the first Principle of work of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb is the Safety Priority. On the basis of this Principle all process of training is based, all programs and rounds are developed and carried out only within this main principle. We consider that at professional approach to development of programs, at personal discipline and correctly put motivation - occupations by mountaineering and rock-climbing are COMPLETELY safe. And from the return - all troubles and accidents in our sport come from nonprofessionalism, from ignorance or neglect by elementary standards of safety, from irrational motivation, from revaluation of own forces and opportunities. All these prerequisites we COMPLETELY EXCLUDE in our work - ours Rock-climbing, Ice climbing and Mountaineering are based on one Principle - the Safety Priority. In rock-climbing, mountaineering and ice climbing, the Priority of Safety of MCS AlexClimb-is your personal security and comfort irrespective of, than we are engaged - we train muscles and we work technology of the movement in the sports hall and on the rock climbing wall, we make the way through snowstorm to top or we relax on golden sand of the Caribbean beach after hot day of trainings on rocks. The Safety priority - the main credo of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb.

AlexClimb Rule #2 - Leave No Trace

Closely interacting with Nature, working with the active programs in mountains, woods, lakes and rivers, we perfectly understand the importance of carefull and respectfull bahavior towards the Nature, for its resources. From the very beginning of our outdoor-activity we adopted rules of  Leave No Trace technique - the standard of behavior of the person accepted in all the civilized world in relation to environment and especially - to the wild nature. After all on the relation of people to the nature near which they exist, itself can draw dalekoidushchy conclusions on the relation of these people to... Where and as we didn't travel - we don't reserve any garbage, we try to reduce whenever possible our influence on environment to a minimum. We clear earlier zagryazyonny tourist parking of the left garbage, we take out and we take out to utilization places that to us other people left there. We consider that only thus, at personal individual consciousness of each citizen, each tourist, climber or autotraveller, we will be able to keep the nature surrounding us in its state, natural, suitable for life, - in it pledge of the healthy future for ourselves and our children.

AlexClimb Rule #3 - Sober Concious

The position of AlexClimb Mountain and rockclimbing School regarding healthy lifestyle is quite clear - we consider that only sober consciousness is capable to fill sincere emotions,  to sympathize, to enjoy life in all its variety. Bright various enjoyable life is possible only on condition of keeping the absolute sobriety and purity of consciousness. Any way of obscuring our perception of reality is intended to do harm to our consciousness and bring harm to our physical health, to replace the true values by false ones, to destroy us physically - to turn us into flabby, weak, senseless, gray herd with empty hazy eyes. We don't force anybody to our point of view, everyone has a God's gift of making his own choice and to destroy himself if that is what he wants... But in AlexCilimb Mountain Climbing School we accept quite certain and very simple set of rules: neither alcohol, nor drugs.
