9th May: The team moved to Camp 2 on Thursday getting ready for their summit attempt, and this morning James, Zach, Phil and Jason made their summit bid. They set off at 2.30 a.m this morning and by 6.30 a.m had reached 6400m at the base of the ridge. Due to the recent heavy snowfall, there was excessive snow on the ridge, to the point that crevasses had opened up. It was decided that conditions were too difficult to continue, so the team made the wise decision to descend.
27th Aug, Summit success! Jason and Alistair successfully reached the summit of Peak Lenin in a 10 hour push in near perfect weather, a long day but a great achievement. They safely descended to high camp at 6100m in just over 4hrs and down to BC the flowing day…a quick descent!
