Climbing volcano Kamen (4585 m). The high difficulty route to the Summit of the most challeging climbing object of Kamchatka.

You'd be surprised, but in the most remote and inaccessible part of the highest volcano group in Kamchatka there is a mountain whose image is well  known around the world. However, that popularity belongs to this mountain of Kamchatka not due to its enormous popularity among the climbers from everywhere - no, this fame - just a coincidence. But that coincidence is so unique that for any amateur or professional of mountaineering it takes a symbolic character. The fact is that the volcano Kamen in Kamchatka - which is the most difficult peak of the Kamchatka Peninsula, be its shape, altitude and climbimg difficulty, is similar as two drops of water with its western counterpart - Matterhorn, which for many years got its reserved fame as the most difficult and prestige mountain of the most famous mountain range of the world - the Alps. Just one look is enough at the sharp rock tooth of the ancient stratovolcano wrapped with clouds and you are virtually taken to the 10 000 kilometers West, to the cozy Swiss mountain town  Zermatt, where couple of hundred years ago, people just stared in awe at the stern, merciless, incredibly beautiful and completely inaccessible fantastic Summit of Matterhorn. Just few places are left on the earth where human foot did not step yet, without brazen confidence and master's carelessness... but definitely volcano Kamen in Kamchatka - this is one of those places. Very few climbers would proudly have included climbing this volcano Kamen into their list of the Victories. This mountain is legendary, extremely remote and extremely serious. Any attempt to climb its Summit requires careful preparation, confidence and understanding of all the difficulties that will be faced on the way to the sharp rock tower, which outlines correspond precisely with the primordial concept of the real mountaineering.

This 6-day program "Climbing the volcano Kamen, Kamchatka" was developed for people who have prior experience in mountain climbing and who understand clearly what does that mean to climb technical alpine route in the severe conditions of autonomic mountain expedition in the remote region of Kamchatka. Climbing route of volcano Kamen is physically hard, requires overcoming serious and long difficult parts. Regardless your climbing experience, we recommend passing the MCS AlexClimb Course of general physical preparation and  Course of Mountain climbing Technique (Advanced 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.
