Now even the most famous memorial in Russia, the Motherland, is entrusted with their care.
They started talking about them back in 1986, when a team of high-altitude climbers was formed from 25 Volgograd mountaineers, led by the master of sports Vladimir Trubnikov.
The climbers were entrusted to cover the surface of the famous Volgograd monument 85 meters high with a protective layer.
Then many Russian newspapers and magazines wrote about their work. The most famous photo appeared on the cover of Ogonyok magazine.
Volgograd residents coped with the responsible work, they accepted the job without any reservations.
After the restoration of the Motherland, industrial mountaineering was in great demand in Volgograd. Workers even began cleaning office windows and plastering outside walls.
Special devices for descending from steep cliffs began to appear, they were called “Zhumars”. Without special training, such brigades were not taken.
Today in Volgograd there are several schools of industrial mountaineering. People come here from sports, there are even former firefighters and rescuers of the Ministry of Emergencies, many have higher education.
As the head of the mountaineering federation Roman Voskoboev said, it is also interesting that people who are engaged in industrial mountaineering manage specialized enterprises, but even in these positions they carry out the most important work with their own hands and are very proud of it.
