The famous Stolbist Ludmila V. Zvereva fell down from the Leushinsky pass on Skala II Stolb (Second Pillar Rock). She was 74 years old.

The legend of the Stolby, Ludmila Vladimirovna Zvereva became famous even before I was born. She was the sportswoman, the climber, and just a beauty. It is no coincidence that she was the first woman to conquer the difficult pass on Skala Perja (Feathers Pillar). Previously, it had been thought that only hard men could climb here. When girls came to the cliff, they touched cautiously the vertical walls and had to understand with crushing hearts that only a man could cope with such difficulties. And Ludmila Zvereva broke this stereotype. Since that time they called the climb Zverevsky after her.

Origins of the Stolby pillars.

The pillars were formed millions of years ago from syenite rocks seeping out of the ground, during the Devonian period. At this point, red-hot magma rose from the depths of the planet and spread across the earth's surface. Then the winds, rains, snow, formation and expansion of cracks, niches, canopies, and caves gave the Stolby such amazing shapes.
