Artur was born in a small town in Tian-Shan. As one can expect, he fell in love with mountains in an early age. In 2008 he climbed Khan Tengri from the north, then two years later from the south. In 2009 he climbed Communism and Korzhenevskaya Peaks as well, followed by Pobeda Peak. Finally, he summited Lenin in 2011, earning the title of “Snow Leopard”. As a matter of fact, he is the youngest Snow Leopard in Kyrgyzstan.
