We climbed this beautiful Volcano (5,642 Mts) with guides Anatoly and Andrey form www.pilgrimtours.org, whish provides excellent services at a very accesible price. People that choose this outlifter is one of the most friendly I've ever met at a Mountain, our group was quite nice and fromed by one Canadian and one French (both females) a great guy from Kuwait and myself from Mexico, mixture was strange but we turned to get together pretty weel and developed new friends including our very proffessional Russian guides.
The mountain is a great experience on itself but the fact that it's in Russia makes the experience very interesting! It's worth all the visa troubles, specially if combined with a trip to San Petersburg.
If you have any questions about the ascent/region I'll be very gald to answer your inquires.
