Alexander Abramov reports: "6, February. In the morning we were woken up by
the noise of the helicopter. It was rangers they brought the bridge and tried
to throw it across the river. In one hour they were successful. Our group was
the first who tested the bridge. We supposed the day would be difficult but it
turned out to be the harder. At 9 o'clock in the morning we packed the
rucksacks and left the camp Confluencia. At first the way led uphill. When we
appeared on the flat place. The river we were compelled to wade in some
places. It was the fist hours of our way. We came up to the good refuge. From
this place the sudden ascent begins it took all our strength.
In the evening all our team was very tired and hungry. So we decided to
have a rest day tomorrow.
