Access Issue: Russian Border Zone Details
Kamchatka is open to tourists since 1991 and remains important region for the Russian military, as Kamchatka is a Russian border zone. Therefore, entry to some regions in Kamchatka in the past had required special permits or was completely restricted. Do your research!
We climbed the NNE face starting from the 3rd volcanologist hut at 2600m. We headed up below and right the large dirty hanging ice fields, crossing the glacier below. This is where the angle begins to crank up and we swapped to crampons and booted the next 4500 or so feet following the heaviest snow bands.
This Volcano can be climbed from any side depending on the current conditions such as position of poisonous gas clouds, smoke plume from volcano, weather and rockfall.
