Geocache Description:

Among numerous granite remains of a rock " Seven Brothers " use the greatest popularity as are the most picturesque and unapproachable. As if stone giants, tower they above a wood, crowning a dome of. Seven-brotherly.

The granite ridge is extended on a crest of mountain from a southwest on northeast. The relative height of the highest remains makes 25 m. The top part of first "brother" on the outlines reminds a bird, in communication, with what name its Stone - bird. There are second, third, fourth "brothers" further. But if want personally to be convinced, how many them actually, and to count, at you hardly it will turn out seven. Number "seven" designates uncertain set, besides in the past this number was sacred.
About these rocks there is a set of legends. That they - severe Mong and his hardened sons, and ostensibly inside rocks are a secret cave in which the beauty - sister inverted in a stone sleeps. That is the magic giants which have turned into rocks when Ermak has dawned their sign of the cross, and as if sometimes and now is audible at night, as hearts of giants in a granite beat. That they are the hardened children severe demidovskogo the manager, - brothers - gold diggers...
Contrary to data frequently meeting in the study of local lore literature that " in an extreme antiquity (in epoch of a neolith and bronze) people here lived... " And " ancient inhabitants of Ural under covering of stone walls quite often did(made) the dwellings or arranged altars... ", any archeological finds on rocks and about them it was revealed not. It is possible to assume, that Seven Brothers, being the most monumental rocks of our vicinities, were natural idols - gods on whom ancient natives prayed. Rocks for them, as well as mountain, were a sacred place, an input on which if was not prohibited was rather limited. If to this to add pagan fear before a nature of inhabitants of local places of an antiquity, becomes clear why here there are no traces of ancient stay of the person. Religious practices were made on the sacrificial places - sanctuaries located in vicinities of mountain which were inverted to idols of Seven Brothers.
From the beginning XX in. Rocks were a place of assemblies of workers. On northern party there is an inscription: " Long live a socialist revolution! ". This slogan a black paint workers have put in 1912 Top - Neyvinskiy of a factory of P.Firsov, F. Sparrows and F.Verevkin on the occasion of arrival here Perm general - governor Bolotova.
" The viewing platform " in a northeast part of a stone ridge on which rise from the southern party is most accessible to "ascention". Many rocky routes have the names. From the southern party - a route for beginners - rock-climbers " the Swedish wall ", with northern - more complex routes: "bottle", "feathers", "prince", "egg", "Izhevsk", "social revolution", " line Malcheva " and others.
With the rocks located at height of 422 m above sea level, the panorama on tens kilometers opens. Among flat woody tops of east foothills of Ural mirrors of lake Tavatuj (in the south), Top - Neyvinskogo of a pond (in the west), Rudyanskogo (in the north), Ajatskogo lakes (in northeast) are visible.
What it is possible to add on above told? The hiding place is in immediate proximity from seven brothers under top of granite remains " the Weak part ". The name is thought up by us! Ask why? And on this question can find the answer, having visited on a place. This also can be the virtual answer in winter time.
Rocks are rather popular place having a rest and climbers, in communication, with what to mountain set of footpaths and roads from different directions. Are dear, for automobiles with high passableness. For not a manor of the last, hour walk on a wood to you is provided. The way will make from two five kilometers of adventures (in dependence from what party to rise) on wood tracks, a capture of ravines and simply impassable thrickets. Rocks are visible about 57 kms. A path Ekaterinburg - Serov. Directly up to them no more than two kilometers, but this place is boggy and rather is not passable, I recommend imagination and having studied a map to think, as it is possible to reach a hiding place.
