NALCHIK, January 15 (Itar-Tass) — The rescue operation on the Elbrus Mount over the search for alpinist from Moscow Artyom Ivanov, 23, is about to be complete. The rescuers have found the bag and other things of the climbers, who dug out a shelter in the snow on the Elbrus Mount over the foil weather back on January 9, head of the Elbrus highland search-and-rescue team Boris Tilov told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“The search for the climber continues near the place, where his bag was found,” he noted.
Three mountaineers from Moscow began the climb on the western top of the Elbrus Mount without passing the sufficient climate adaptation. The rescuers believe that their mistake was a stop for the night in the saddle of the mountain at an altitude of 5,200 metres, where over the shortage of oxygen the mountain sickness breaks out, as people are feeling euphoria and overestimate their forces.
Climber Anastasia Tyulkina, 21, was found safe and sound at an altitude of about 4,800 metres on January 11. She succeeded to get out from the hut in the saddle, where the alpinists spent two frosty nights, taking a refuge from the bad weather, and began to go down for help. The young woman told the rescuers that head of the climbing team Ivanov is unconscious and his leg is presumably broken.
The rescuers also found that a climber refused from the ascent on the mountain and came back to Moscow.
