Climbing Koriakskaya sopka (3456 m). The moderate difficulty route to the top of very active volcano of the central part of Kamchatka.

While overlooking the volcanic panorama, which opens in good weather from any elevated spots of Petropavlovsk Kamchatskiy, you can easily see all the features of the climbing routes of the two beautiful "home volcanoes" which are located close to the Kamchatka Capital city.  On the right there is sloping mountain, often covered with snow cap - that is a well-known Avachinskiy volcano - the youngest in the group, and the most active - it is almost constantly erupting or showing its volcanic nature.

The mountain on the left - which is higher and steeper - it is Koryak volcano - serious challenge even for trained climber. Even in good weather Koryak volcano represents certain technical difficulties for climbing, if not to mention its objective physical inaccessibility - the difference in the elevation of the last camp and the summit altitude is more than two kilometers - that is the main factor of difficulty when climbing Koryak volcano. Climbing Koryak volcano can be recommended for climbers with a good physical preparation. Technically, the route is not very complicated, rather Koryak volcano requires certain accuracy when climbing - its upper slopes are quite dangerous because of often rock falls.

This 4-day program "Climbing the volcano Koryakskaya Sopka, Kamchatka" was developed for people who have some prior experience in mountain climbing and who want to try themselves at Kamchatka mountain climbing. Climbing route of Koriakskaya Sopka quite very hard physically, require overcoming not serious but comparably difficult parts. Regardless your climbing experience, we recommend passing the course of general physical preparation and MCS AlexClimb course of Mountain Technique (basic level) before participating in this program. 

The First Principle of MCS AlexClimb

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.
