Climbed from everywhere  Sucess!

Climbed in spring, summer, autumn, winter... From everywhere - paths, ridges, walls, gully... This is emblematic mountain for all Bulgarian climbers. Respect!

On Maljovica peak  Sucess!

Around this date, me and three tourists I was guiding then, we climbed Maljovica together. Due to an old knee trauma, one of them decided to stop, just several vertical meters before the summit (where the path goes on the main ridge). The ridge is relatively horizontal there, so thanks to my GPS, I was finally able to locate the peak itself :)

Route Climbed: Normal winter route Date Climbed: December 17 2005

I had the rare chance to go on a night hike together with two Everest summiteers - Nikolai Petkov (who summited Everest twice, in 1984 by the West ridge and 2004 by the North ridge) and Dojchin Bojanov (who summited in 2004 by the North ridge without supplemental oxygen).

There was pretty strong wind, especially on the ridge. The snow was soft but not too deep. At some point I stopped to change my trekking poles with an ice axe and I was left some 40-50 meters behind. When I got to Eleni peak Nikolai Petkov and Dojchin Bojanov were getting back from Maljovica and I decided to descend with them. It was close, a matter of about 80 vertical meters (considering the 700 vertical meters before that, from the hut (+250 from the Central Mountaineering School)). All in all I don't regret too much that I didn't summit, being one step behind two of the finest Bulgarian (and world-class) climbers is good enough for me!
