We drove to Northern Ural mounatins and back, including crossing the Ural mountains near upper Kosva river and radial trips to Quarkush and Molebny Kamen crests. We changed the original plan because of continuous rain, which spoiled the road conditions. The whole trip took 24 days and 5800km on roads (mostly, ground) and 450km off-road.
