Climbing Pila Peak, 1 day, height 1100 m.
The route starts from the former Alma-Arasan resort. We pass the coniferous forest zone, bypass the north-eastern ridge, that is going from the top. Then we turn left. At the beginning we go up from the Prokhodnaya river along a grassy slope, and then along a steep scree. Having reached the foot of the north-eastern ridge, we climb to it from the eastern side. Here the surface of the rocks is very destroyed, but according to the technique of climbing, they are easy. The pre-peak part of the route is the most difficult. There are large acute-angled rocky peaks with steep slopes, so you need to be attentive with piton-belay. The top is a tower that breaks off in the north by a sheer wall.
