04-Янв-2007 – Главной целью этой прогулки было испытание новоприобретенных лыж, предназначенных специально для хождения по целинному снегу. Данная точка находится совсем недалеко от Екатеринбурга, и на ней уже несколько раз бывали наши друзья-велосипедисты. Мы выехали утром на автобусе до Монетного. От места, где мы вышли из автобуса, до точки было около восьми километров. Надев лыжи, мы пошли по лесу в направлении поселка Мурзинский, по ходу проводя эксперименты с лыжными мазями. Поскольку мы не обладаем большим опытом хождения на лыжах и обращения с мазями, наше продвижение к цели проходило в весьма скромном темпе. Обойдя поселок справа, мы вышли к точке.

Точка расположена в лесу, рядом с просекой. По этой просеке мы и направились на юг в сторону Старопышминска. Выйдя на накатанную дорогу, мы сняли лыжи и далее шли пешком до Старопышминска, откуда уехали домой на автобусе.

04-Jan-2007 – The main aim of this walk was testing our new skis, that are made for walking across virgin snow. This DCP is the closest point to Yekaterinburg city, and it has already visited by our friends (hikers by bicycle) several times. We got off early morning by bus from Vostochnaya [Eastern] station (in Yekaterinburg city) to Monyetnyi. It was about eight kilometers from the CP to the place where we get out of bus. We put on skis and went across a forest towards Murzinskiy small village. As we are not experts in skiing and ski greasing, we were approaching our goal relatively slow. We passed the village around and reached the point.

The actual spot is situated in a forest, near a cutting path. After visiting the DCP we followed this path towards Staropyshminsk town. When we reached smooth snowy road we take off skis and walked till we came to Staropyshminsk, then we went home by bus.
