About the Teamleader
Briefly about myself
I do not like "rush" and try to make all processes take place calmly, whether it is communication between the participants or overcoming a difficult section on the route. There are enough excitement in the mountains without people! It is worth it to fully enjoy them, being in a beautiful place. After all, impressions are the most valuable things we can get from life. Well, travel is the greatest storehouse of impressions.
I try to make all possible preparations in advance to avoid surprises on the spot. It concerns everything: equipment, route, and condition of the group.
Well also I know a lot about the mountain areas, their tops and routes on them. Therefore, those who are in this subject will not be bored. And those who are not in the subject, listening, can quickly join! :)

Nikita himself about his achievements:
I try to spend about 100 days in the mountains every year. For 10 years I have been regularly hiking routes that I find challenging and that contribute to my progress as a climber. I have been in many mountain systems: the Alps, the Dolomites, the Caucasus, Tien Shan, the Himalayas, Altai, the Khibiny, the mountains of Morocco, the Balkans, Turkey, and other exotic places. There are a lot of peaks, both existing lines and first traverses. All possible categories at different heights (up to 7000+m inclusive). Well and all sorts of prizes in this area, too, but I consider them more of a bonus. The main thing is the process of being in the mountains and in good company.
