Program complexity?

On what depends the complexity of the rockclimbing or mountain climbing program and how to decide on a choice?

For convenience of our clients we divided all the programs presented on our site in several groups depending on technical complexity and requirements for experience for the participants.

First, let's deal with the rockclimbing programs. With them everything is absolutely simple and clear - all the programs of the category "rockclimbing" don't demand any preliminary experience for participation in them. It is desirable to possess sure skills of belaying, and to have general idea of what is the rockclimbing. If you know nothing about this sport, it would be enough to visit couple of rockclimbing trainings before the trip - you will learn how to belay and will get some climbing techniques for to receive a necessary minimum of information, . And go to the rocks. Only the total medical ban on physical activity can be restriction for participation in rockclimbing programs of MCS AlexClimb School. Though the majority of diseases can't prevent you to be engaged in rockclimbing in any way, nevertheless before a trip it is necessary to consult with the doctor, previously being convinced that the doctor understands a difference between rock-climbing and mountaineering.

Now let's talk about mountain climbing programs.

In tha all becomes a little more difficult. The matter is that any climbing program, even the simplest is connected with a certain risk  and physical activity which aren't present in rockclimbing programs. It is necessary to understand a difference between mountaineering and rockclimbing. If everything with that is clear for you - let's read further.

Basic complexity

Climbing programs of this level are available for the most physically healthy people who don't have diseases of heart and respiratory system. Physical load during these programs is moderate, technical obstacles on the routes don't present much difficulty. Physical trainings and exercises for the development of coordination  are recommended

Average level of complexity

Level of complexity of these programs is still available to people without climbing experience, but requirements to a physical form are slightly higher, than for participation in programs of the Basic level. Loads can be quite serious, carrying heavy rucksucks and long-term stay in high altitude conditions without existence of habitual comfortable conditions can be demanded. Climbing programs of this level assume overcoming of technically difficult steep climbing sections, but generally no lond and dangerous. For participation in the programs of this level it is recommended to prepare seriously and to complete the MCS AlexClimb course of "Technics of Mountaineering" - as a rule, we include this course in the cost of programs

High level of complexity

These are the top programs of MCS AlexClimb School of mountaineering, its "business card". Main feature of the programs of this level is that we don't work at such routes with groups - it is too dangerous. Programs are carried out at a ratio 1:1 or 2:1 "guide - client", depending on a route and the client's climbing level. For participation in the programs of this level it is necessary to possess a good physical form and sufficient climbing experience. The decision of confirming the programs of the high level of complexity can be done only after the thorough interview with the potential client.

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.
