The legend of world mountaineering Simone Moro conquered the highest point of Yakutia and the North-East of Russia. The first ever winter ascent of Mount Pobeda (Victory) was completed successfully. He climbed Mount Pobeda yesterday, February 11. The Yakutia 24 TV Channel was informed by the Rescue Service inspector Maya Romanova.
"Simone Moro with Tamara Lunger climbed the top today and returned safely. Tomorrow they are moving to the village of Sasyr,” she said yesterday.
The journey to Pobeda Mount was not easy. Mountaineers left the village of Sasyr on snowmobiles and drove to the camp of reindeer herders. From there, they reached the Kureter Base Camp on skis.
Earlier, the NBC Sakha informed that the team of Italian climbers arrived in the republic at the end of January for the winter ascent of Mount Pobeda. Later they were joined by the Yakut mountaineer, a member of the Federation of Mountaineering and Rock Climbing of Yakutia Oleg Saifulin.
