Guided climbs of Mount Kilimanjaro - classic mountain program of MCS AlexClimb in Arrica.

The highest point of the Black Continent, The Roof of Africa - Mount Kilimanjaro - is titanic extinct volcano of nearly six thousand meters high - the highest self standing mountain in the world and one of the highest volcanoes. Some time in the past the summit of Kilimanjaro was covered with the ice armour, but the global worming of climate hasn't left very little from the ancient glaciers - just some small ice patches on the top which are visibly decreasing every year. Mount Kilimanjaro is very popular among the climbers and trekkers as not difficult but quite high and extremely beautiful mountain, climbing of which doesn't take much time and can be combined with other interesting thing as safaris, animal and bird watching, sea fishing and diving, ethnographic excursions, prosaic getting sunburn on a beech etc.
Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is ideal for the people who have no previous climbing experience, it is technically easy but quite serious altitude which is more tolerable and easy here in the proximity of Equator than in more northern or southern latitudes - all this together with professionally built acclimatization schedule, give a fair opportunity to achieve a success and get plenty of brightest impressions, pleasure and experience which will be so important for the more serious climbs in future.

N.B. Pledge of success in any mountain climb connected with altitude (this is fully relates to climbing Mount Kilimanjaro), is correctly built acclimatization schedule. The average rate of successful Mount Kilimanjaro climbs varies from 20 to 30% depending on the route, and the lowest rate is more applicable to the most popular and easy routes. THe reason for this is that the most of the ready Mount Kilimanjaro tours which so many companies sell, do not include correct acclimatization program and do not attract the client's attention to its critical importance. In the same time, correct acclimatization before climbing Kilimanjaro is exceptionally important part of the trip, and if you are not acclimatized properly the not only reduces significantly you chances for success, but, and this is far more important - the lack of acclimatization while climbing Kilimanjaro (or any high mountain) can bring serious harm to your health.

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.
