Как альпинисты ночую на скалах

Загрузка...

Многие десятилетия восходители вынуждены были искать полки для бивака даже на самых сложных маршрутах. Но с приходом в альпинизм восхождений на вертикальные стены вероятность нахождения полки в нужное время снизилась почти до нуля. Платформы, которые мы все теперь знаем, появились в результате довольно долгих поисков оптимального технического решения этой сложности. Лис подобрал несколько фото того как альпинисты начуют на вертикальных скалах.

And as these stunning pictures show, because the climbs can last for weeks they must set up tents on the edge of monster-sized cliff faces for much needed rest. The incredible pictures were taken by adventure photographer Gordon Wiltsie, 57, who risks his own life to capture these unbelievable thrill-seeking moments. He said: During this climb it was the Arctic spring so melting snow on both the summit and a ledge midway up the cliff constantly sent rocks and chunks of ice flying down.SEE CATERS COPY, Model Release: No or not aplicable, Credit line: Profimedia.cz, Caters News
