Most of the day will take a gradual climb through the forested river valley Kotelett. And only in the end of the path will be steeper 200 metre rise to the meadow Plistse (1460 m), where is a good tourist shelter (plenty of space). Until it got dark collect firewood should be reserved two days in advance, because tomorrow it will not be time. Melt the stove, dried and heated :) < / br> altitude: 800 m Distance: 10 km

To be able to carry out all planned we need to Wake up early in the morning and as soon as possible to gather. Sleeping bags, food and other baggage left at the shelter, and to output a only take warm clothes (halts) and tea in the thermos. We will start with Radialka the mountain Grof - the first 100 metres of climb through pine forest, then proceed to comb studded with green stones on it (Gorgan) and go to the top 200 vertical meters, 800 horizontally. But do not think that such a small distance will be easy for us "swallowed". And if I get a lot of snow, this kilometer can easily spend more than two hours. Conquering the summit, Grof (1748m) we return to the shelter, very quickly eat and go to the second left for the mount of Parenki (m). Of course, there is the possibility that we are the weather turned bad and we will cancel the second left, but let's hope for the best. In any case, take the lanterns in the winter night hike constantly comes on the heels. < / br> altitude: 900 m Distance: 8 km
