Educational rockclimbing program: These climbing programs, in the presence of clear sport orientation (daily climbing workout), still represent a variant of recreation - with comfortable accommodation, additional activities and excursions. The programs are aimed primarily at participants who have no experience of the rockclimbing on the natural terrain. For climbing programs of the "Educational" class it is characteristic the constant change of rockclimbing areas and sectors - to achieve the most complete view of the nature of rockclimbing on the different types of rocks. In that class of climbing programs there is no focusing on the multiple repetitions (memorizing) of the same rockclimbing routes and increasing climbing level. The overall objective  of the climbing programs of the "Educational" class - that is comfortable and active vacation, getting familiar with rockclimbing on the natural terrain, visiting  the most interesting attractions of the area, which hosts the rockclimbing program ... - and reveal your sport climbing capacity for participation in the future rockclimbing programs.

The main points of the Common Rules of the AlexClimb rock climbing Programs:

Recreational Rockclimbing outdoor tours of MCS AlexClimb - are conventionally sports programs aimed for participants with different levels of training experience. The program is a universal event, participation in which can be interesting for both novice and experienced rockclimbers. The program is based on the standart scheme  - sport+recreation (Priority Sports), but it is not purely sport event. The program, in addition to training on the natural terrain, consists of various additional activities to achieve greater flexibility of the program and compliance with the diverse interests of the participants.

Participants of the Rockclimbing program are encouraged to participate in all parts of the program. If the Participant refuses to take part in any part of the program prescribed in this Agreement, that shall not change the general program nor will result any refund of prepaid funds. The program can be change by the decision of the Program Coordinator and this decision can be made only after consultation with the School Menagment and all participants of the Group.

Organizing rockclimbing trainings on the natural terrain implies a certain dependence on the weather conditions - the rescheduling of trainings 
is possible in case of rain, snow, strong winds, etc. The decision to change the program in the event of adverse weather conditions may be made by the Coordinator of the program in coordination with the group.

Very important to understand: the safety of all the Group during rockclimbing training Program fully depends on the discipline and mutual respect of all the Program participants. In case if Participant behavior is offensive to other people (to Participants of Personnel or local people etc.) or violates rudely the discipline the Program Coordinator has the right to dismiss the guilty person from further participation in the Program without any futher compensation of refunds.    

  • Safety Priority – it is the main principle, on which depend all the Guide decisions on the route.

Since the rockclimbing is dangerous kind of activity, the total safety cannot be assured, each participant should accept the fact, that from the beginning of the Program to its end the only person responsible for his  health and life is himself. The Organizer engage himself to provide the highest possible level of safety, based on the following the Mountain and RockClimbing Safety Rules, but the Organizer is not responsible for any harm which can be brought to you health, life or belongings during your stay in the mountains.

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.
