17-Mar-2007 – Достигнуть точки было нетрудно. Двигаясь по дороге Р209 Кирсанов – Пенза, мы остановились у придорожного кафе рядом с Ширяево, оставили там автомобиль и направились пешком на север. Единственной трудностью, с которой мы столкнулись, был овраг с протекающим по его дну весенним ручьем. Ручей нам пришлось форсировать, поскольку изначально был выбран неверный путь подхода к точке. Точка расположена в поле к востоку от оврага. Вернувшись из поля, мы с удовольствием поужинали в кафе.

17-Mar-2007 – The point was not difficult to reach. We drove along the route R209 Kirsanov – Penza and stopped at a roadside cafe near Shiryayevo. Then we left our car there and headed to the north by foot. The only difficulty we faced with was the ravine with spring brook on its bottom. Since we primarily chose wrong way to get to the point we had to force a crossing over the brook. The confluence point is located in the field at the eastern side of the ravine. We were glad to take supper at the cafe after we got back from the field.
