TOMSK, August 14 /TASS/. Four mountain climbers from Tomsk, a city in Western Siberia, have died during ascent in the Aktru gorge in Russia’s Altai Mountains, a source at the tourism and Alpinism club (TAKT) of the Tomsk State University of Radio Systems and Radio Electronics told TASS on Friday. Presumably, they have frozen to death.
"The four alpinists were the TAKT club veterans who went on an outing to the Aktru gorge. They were experienced mountain climbers: Oleg Tverdokhlebov, Dmitry Shelefontyuk, Andrei Martynov and Alisa Rotanova," the club source said adding that the glacial route, which the alpinists had chosen, was not complicated.
