Moraine of Boganovicaha Glacier on the way to Klyuchevsky. It took us three days to go around Bezymyanny, cross numerous lava fields, walk along the Bogdanovicha Glacier Marine edge, and finally walk up the Bogdanovicha Glacier, crossed with precipices and pitfalls and decaying rock, to finally reach a freezing and open to all winds base camp at the foot of Kluchvskoy (3300 m).
