Due to enormous quantity of snow the decision was made to get down from somewhere in the middle of the ridge. Fresh snow more than one meter deep. No chance to organize protection. Not a good season for climbing in Altay.
Started early in the morning from the Base Camp we got to the summit at 10 A.M. and were extremely lucky to see the stunning views of Belukha before it get closed with clouds. Descended Normal (East Ridge) route without any problems.
