Route description - Translated with Yandex Tanslate

After about 270 km away from the sanctuary of Diana, on a spot where the wall curves in and out, we move on to the base of the route alpine-level 3A "Medardus" (1 580 m alt.). A pine tree with the top of the ciont, crack it open, and the rings along the vertical, are the landmarks of the base of the route.
