Skitur on Pshekho-Su part 2. Down.
In the previous part of the story, we enjoyed the pleasure of climbing up, it was time to enjoy the pleasure of descending down!
In theory, it should be much faster and less energy consuming. Views and all sorts of beauty will be in the reverse order. We plan to descend almost in the wake of the ascent, but there is a desire to sympathize a little. Let's try what comes of it. It is necessary to hurry, because if the Sun hides even a little soft snow and turns into a tin, on which it will be very unpleasant to ride. Go!
We start straight from the top, at the same time. The dangers are only in pillboxing with each other, the rest of the slope is still the same gently sloping without cracks and pitfalls. Although snow stones are available and you need to be careful. It is easy to fly and, if not fall, then at least spoil the slip.
Even the photo shows that the snow at 2600 in the middle of April was already very spring.
A little traverse to the pristine slope. It's always better than rolling in your own tracks. The open spaces on Pshekha are very fascinating.Bias for beginners.
As it was possible to assume, the descent did not take place in the "without stopping" mode, from time to time it was necessary to approach the skate a little.
"Take a photo so that the sea could be seen behind us." I would love to, but the sea is not so good. Already very blue smoke and the sun directly into the lens.
One of the most photogenic places with grass, stones and mountains. It is necessary to go very carefully because of the stones.
The photo immediately shows where the south side of the mountain is. I'd like to see through to the north. If we were filmed in some thread of an extreme film with a helicopter, then we would have done so, and so we would scratch ourselves along the comb and look at the shadow side, which, most likely, had already grabbed.
But not everything has been grasped yet, it is worth trying ...
Have tried. Further it is not clear what is down there. We dare. The couloir beckons, but just like that on a tin there you don’t want to go there and it’s not safe. That would be a couple of hours early, then maybe yes.
Guide leaves for exploration.
News from the scout disappointing, we rise from here up. We did not give us a couloir with the fucking grotto this time. Namely, he was my old Wishlist. I think not only mine. :)
We continue on the background of the sea. If someone did not understand where it is, I will explain. It is where the sun is reflected.Light is reflected from the water surface!
The lower, the less snow, but the path is easy to choose. Razazvatsya had just once.
Report from the work done. It will be here until the next snow or until everything melts.
I like this spring and the fact that it allows us to relax so beautifully.
Maikop Pass. It is worth taking off the skis. There is nowhere to go.
And when you look from top to bottom, you can’t say it at all, your eyes are looking for a place where you can slip.
Found a suitable snowflake, try it!
With grief in half, they moved almost to the bottom, climbed through thawed patches and hitched stones. It seems that here is the road and the shelter, to which you will definitely have to walk, but if you look at the previous picture, then you can see part of the way that you can go straight to the houses in the forest, which we used!
All is well that ends well. So this departure ended great. The next day there was another way out, but I worked on my own program and I will not tell you anything about him. I can only say that Lagonaki is very unpredictable. From year to year there are different snow conditions and conditions for skitour,but in any case, you can have a good time with the right mood and choice of route according to the forces.
