12-Июня-2008 – Разведка, проведенная 1.06.2008г., показала, что подъехать к точке летом по зимнику со стороны п.Дурмин не представляется возможным, так как там довольно водянистое болото.

Выехали 12.06.2008г. двумя автомобилями, через примерно 4 км после п.Малая Сидима свернули на юг, а еще через 4,5км свернули на дорогу, идущую на пасеку. Около пасеки ушли налево, пересекли поле и вдоль сопки прошли еще около полутора километров. Точка оставалась справа в пятистах метрах. Разведка, высланная вперед, показала, что до ближайшего брода 2 км, но дороги ведут не в нужном направлении.

К точке пересечения прошли пешком, это заняло больше времени, чем планировали, лес местами густой и высокие кочки. По пути форсировали реку Кузнечиха, она не глубокая и шириной 5–6 метров.

12-Jun-2008 – An ice road that was inspected on the 1st of June 2008 gave no opportunity to get to the point from the direction of Durmin village due to its having turned into a watery marsh in summer.

We started out on the 12th of June 2008 by two cars, took southwards 4 km after Malaya Sidima village and then turned to the road leading to a bee-garden after extra 4,5 km. We took leftwards near the bee-garden and crossed the field, after that additional 1,5 km were passed along the hillside. The confluence was 500 m to the right of us. The nearest ford was scouted out to be two kilometers away, but all the dirt tracks weren't directed the way we needed.

We reached the point on foot. It took more time than we could expect due to dense forest and high tussocks. While approaching the confluence we had to ford the river of Kuznechikha. It was 5 to 6 m wide and not quite deep.

Pictures that were taken within the visit can be found here.
