Asia, Russia, Ural Range, Northern Urals, Peak Sablya, Two New Routes in Winter

Northern Urals, Peak Sablya, two new routes in winter. These ascents took 10 days for the climbs (820m, Russian grade VI) and were done simultaneously by two teams. The joint Peterburg-Ekaterinburg team earned second place in the “first-ascent class” of the Russia-2002 mountain climbing championship. See “The Sabre” earlier in this Journal.
