Mountain climbing program "Climbing of Peak Delone in Altai" with MCS AlexClimb Guides

Program "Mountain climbing in Altai, climbing Peak Delone" is available on the reservation at least 90 day prior the trip - special permission needed for entering the border area.

This Program - climbing Peak Delone is recommended as additional part of Climbing Mount Belukha Program. Combining two programs in one - Traverse Delone - Belukha is possible.

Significant mountain located in the same range as famous Belukha to the East from Belukha East Peak, bears the name of Russian mathematician and climber B.N. Delone. This mountain is not climbed very often mostly because of the closely located Belukha - highly desired goal for most of the climbers in the area. But Peak Delone - undeservedly low visited mountain remains very challenging and fascination thing to climb, especially if you are not prone to do as everybody does. Technically Peak Delone Classic Route is half-grade higher in Russian categories comparing to Belukha, it offers more technical and exposed climbing to the Summit, which can be easily combined with climbing Belukha as the routes share the same descent route and partly ascent one. Climbing Peak Delone can extend your Altay adventure and prolong your climbing program in Altay as climbing must-to-climb Belukha surely is obligatory but not enough for getting acquainted with fairy Altay mountains.

At the moment, lack of organization and infrastructure came to the very inconvenient situation in Belukha region when 99% of all the climbing people go to Altay for one mountain and one route. Every mountain around is climbed once in 5 years, but classic route to East Belukha is flooded much more its capacity. The idea is to provide more information on the possible routes and mountains in Altay to make the climbers interest may be not equal but somehow distributed between some highly interesting and beautiful climbing locations.

This 12-day program "Mountain climbing in Altai, climbing Peak Delone" is designed for people who have prior experience in mountain climbing. This program includes acclimatization part. Regardless your climbing experience, we recommend the Course of general physical preparation and passing MCS AlexClimb Course of Mountain 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.

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.
