Climbing Sredniy volcano (2978 m). The easiest climb in the Kluchevskaya volcano group. 

In the middle part of the black body of Erman glacier rises its colored crown the rocky half ruined crater of the small, but quite independent  volcano - Sredniy (The Middle). This volcano is not notable for anything more than its close proximity to the famous climbing objects of Kamchatka - Kluchevskaya Sopka, volcano Kamen and volcano Krestovskiy. Climbing Sredniy volcano can supply any climbing program of the volcanoes of the Klyuchevskaya group as training or acclimatization climb. In addition, we are always glad to include climbing Sredniy volcano into the trekking programs in Kamchatka - anyway, climbing at the altitude of about 3000 meters, we are able to see the full beauty of the most severe and difficult mountains of Kamchatka. Also, do not forget that in order to get to the foot of the volcano Sredniy, you need to overcome rather interesting set of obstacles - first - access to Kluchevskaya Sopka by cross country vehicle or helicopter, cross radially  several lava flows and the Erman glacier. So, despite the apparent simplicity of the climbing route of Sredniy volcano, this program is quite serious adventure and a way to familiarize with amazing alpine world of Kamchatka.

This 4-day program "Climbing volcano Sredniy, Kamchatka" is designed for people who have no prior experience in mountain climbing and who want to try themselves at mountain climbing. Climbing route of Sredniy volcano is not hard physically, does not require to overcome any technically difficult parts nor long-term stay at high altitude conditions. Regardless your climbing experience, we recommend passing the MCS AlexClimb course of general physical preparation and course of Mountain Technique (basic level) before participating in this program.

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.
