It was cloudless, but the snow on top of the flags were told that there will not be easy to fly or simply unrealistic. Wind – as in all the mountain valleys – the night poured west, and the day was blowing to the east. We drove to the base camp, unnoticed by dialing 800 meters elevation on the GPS showed the bridge in 2800, and BC is on the 3600. BC In the "base" still asleep, there were seven am. Carefully stand camping bright yellow hinted that everything will be happy and everything will be OK. Alexander, the commandant of the camp, took us by providing us a tent and "breakfast" of us, went on business.
We went to bed, looking at the top and clicking cameras. Waking up in the heat somewhere in the 11 hours, decided to dismantle our climber, paragliding equipment. The fun began. I had two 200 and one 30-liter backpack, Andrei alone, but also 200 liter. Every resident of the "base" asked: "How do you bear it all on the mountain?".
We're tired of answering that would suffer not our entire economy. Disassembled and spread out on all the "shelves", and went to work with domes for training and acclimatization. First experience has been obtained, work with a dome for 3600 at a wind of 2-3 m / s is very difficult, because the air lacks the same and expected to fill the dome, which occurs even at 1000 meters above sea level. We need more vigorous wind or run- forward start.
