A tourist climbs up to reach the top of the rock in Siberia

A tourist climbs up to reach the top of the rock named "The Fourth Stolb" (the Fourth Pillar) at the Stolby national nature reserve in the Siberian Taiga area outside the Russian city of Krasnoyarsk, October 2, 2013. Picturesque rocky blocks rising above the Taiga draw attention of tourists from all over Russia and abroad. Amateur rock-climbing became popular with local residents in the middle of the 19th century and since then more and more Siberians, who were later nicknamed "Stolbists", spent time in the Stolby (Pillars) natural reserve for outdoor sports and tourism.
