Kamchatka mountaineering - "Climbing volcanoes Alaid, Fuss and Krenitskiy in Kuril islands" - climbing the most fascinating active volcanoes of Kuril islands from the MCS AlexClimb boat Base Camp!

Among the most inaccessible places on our planet, the Kuril Islands stand in about the same place as the Amazon forests, the ice fields of the North Pole or the snowy peaks of the Antarctica mountains. To get to these places is extremely difficult, despite all the achievements of modern transportation - this is the main attractiveness of such areas, their uniqueness.

MCS AlexClimb Mountaineering School presents a new exclusive program of climbing the most significant volcanoes of the Kuril Islands in the Far East of Russia. The peculiarity of this program is that all the climbing sites are located in a remote area of ​​the Pacific Ocean and are accessible only from the sea - during this expedition our base camp will be located on a ship. For climbing volcanos, the group lands on the island for 1-2 days, and after ascent returns back to the boat to rest and move to the area of ​​the next climb.

We chose the most interesting and highest volcanoes of the Kuril and Sakhalin regions - volcano Alaid (2339 m) on Atlasova island, volcano Fussa (1772 m) on Paramushir island, volcano Krenitsin (1324 m) on Onekotan island as the objects of climbing for our sailing/climbing expedition. All these mountains are not difficult from a climbing point of view, routes to their summits do not require climbing skills and the use of special equipment, but they have unique natural features and are of exceptional interest to the mountain nature lovers, people addicted to the travel and real adventures. Members of our expedition will not only see with their own eyes how a snow-white dome of a volcano, caressed by the rising sun, appears on a blue horizon of an endless ocean, like a mirage, but also personally meet the dawn at its summit, feel the gravity of each meter of elevation and enjoy the feeling of victory over oneself.

This 10-day program "Climbing Alaid and volcanoes in Kuril islans"  was developed for people who have no experience in mountain climbing and who want to get closely acquainted with the wild nature of Kuril islands and Kamchatka. The program "Climbing Alaid and volcanoes in Kuril islands" is a combined alpine route which does not require overcoming  any technically difficult obstacles nor long-term stay at high altitude conditions. Regardless your climbing or trekking experience, we recommend passing the MCS AlexClimb course of general physical preparation and course of Mountain Climbing Technique (basic level) 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.
