Mountains live a kind life. Seemingly dead and real estate from afar, they are in constant motion. Silent silence followed by the roar of thunder storms and landslides. A warm sunny day changes harsh freezing night.
When a person falls in the mountains, he has to join the fight against the elements – a force many times greater than the physical power of man. And in this struggle man emerges victorious only when he is stronger than the mountains. Climber armed with technology, experience, knowledge, and the power of his mind with these powerful tools to deal emerges victorious.
At every step climber threatening dangers both obvious and hidden. To overcome them, and to pave the way to the top, the climber should know much, much more to see and understand, should know the dangers of the mountains, to anticipate them in advance to be able to solve and avoid them.
The dangers of the mountains conventionally divided into two groups: the objective danger existing in the mountains themselves, and subjective risk arising due to reasons beyond the control of most climbers. Objective risk in turn can be divided into general and local hazards. Common potential threats everywhere, regardless of the terrain and space, these include: rain, fog, storm, storm, darkness. The local hazards occur only in certain areas: it is on the rocks and rock falls from the cliffs, avalanche snow, firn and ice slopes, hidden cracks in the glaciers, etc.
One of the greatest dangers with which to fight the climber in the mountains, is the weather. Mountain, easy to climb in good weather, it is very difficult and dangerous weathertight.
