"Mountaineering is not a sport, it is a way of life" - so say people who have been in the mountains at least once. Back in 1995, when I joined the children's mountaineering and climbing section by chance, I had no idea that mountains would become my disease, my way of life!
Year by year the geography of my ascents grew, I perfected my climbing skills, making more and more difficult ascents. For today I have ascended difficult climbing routes in the Caucasus, Georgia, Pamir, Tien Shan and the Himalayas. Including new, earlier unpassed routes; ascents to all the "seven-thousanders" of the CIS; oxygen-free ascents to the "eight-thousanders" - Makalu, Manaslu and Gasherbrum II.
Training at the Central School of Instructors in 2011 and the great amount of knowledge accumulated during expeditions and trips enables me to work confidently and professionally with groups of climbers of different skill level, from beginners to masters. And stories about my amazing adventures in the mountains will be very handy for a cup of hot tea before bedtime:)
