3 Alexander Semonov Russia-Male-ListvyankaListvyanka362/16/20073/24/20071,85051.4Ski/skateUnknownNoNoUsed skates and bought food along the way from local communities.Passed according to preliminary estimates about 1850-1950 km. Because of the hummocks, the Bay of Proval is not completely passed, in the Chivyrkuy Gulf it reached o.Goly. Barguzinsky Bay is a bit cut off at the isthmus. In small, but deep into the coastal zone, the bays reached half: Sor Bay, Ayay Bay, Frolikha Bay, Boguchanskaya Bay, Mukhur Bay, Ust-Anga Bay. Slightly compensated for the "hook" to the Great Ushkan Island.

Worked fine.Used 2 ice screws and climbing strops to secure tent. Montane smock and salopettes, Baffin Shackleton boots. PHD down gear and down sleeping bag. Should have used big synthetic bag due ice. Tent was RAB gortex 1 man dome - ecxcellent. Only failure was the plunger in the stove pump, fished it out, oiled the pump and refitted. Do not go without GPS tracker...I used Spot Gen 3 and satphone in case of extreme emergency.Bicycle Thorn Nomad with Schwalbe ice tyres and Ortleib bags.60kg100% snow cover over full length. Deeper and drifting in the North. Mostly not rideable. Some very slow days in the North with just 11 km per day. Unstable ice at Cape Elokhin where a park ranger was lost assisting to extract exped 4x4 the day before my arrival, also broke through ice just offshore from a hut 4nm N of Bol Kolokolny.
