Today marks the start of another expedition as part of the Seven Summits program – Sergey Kofanov and Vladimir Stepashko have left Moscow and Kiev for Anchorage. The fine-tuned roped team plans to scale the highest summit in North America - McKinley Peak (6,194 m). The team will spend one day in Anchorage to shop for the missing gear and will set off for Talkeetna on July 21, from where they will fly to the start of the route on the Kahiltna Glacier. Remind that in the past year Sergey and Vladimir as a team have successfully scaled Mount Kilimanjaro, Carstensz Pyramid, Vinson Massif, and Aconcagua.
