Peak Korzhenevskaya

Peak Korzhenevskaya

From £6,500
Altitude 7,105m Grade: 3C

Peak Korzhenevskaya is a great choice for your first 7000m peak and one of the Russian Snow Leopard.

100% Expedition Success all 3 of our previous expeditions to climb Peak Korzhenevskaya have been successful and whilst it is a little more technical we have found it to be less physically demanding than Peak Lenin which has an exceptionally long summit day.

Peak Korzhenevskaya can be climbed in conjunction with an ascent of Ismoil Somoni Peak7495m (Peak Communism), using Korzhenevskaya to prepare for its higher and more difficult neighbour. The classic Southern ridge route starts from the Moskvina Glade, reached by helicopter and is generally regarded as the safest and easiest route to the summit. Camps are placed at 5300m and 6400m from where we tackle the summit via a narrow but not steep ridge. To aid our ascent and the move between camps we will acclimatise on the nearby Peak Vorobyova (5691m) and porters are used to carry group equipment (tents, stoves and fuel)

Peak Korzhenevskaya is one of the five Russian peaks that make up the Snow Leopard Challenge

Days 1 - 2

Depart UK, arriving Dunshabe early the following morning on day 2. Obtain Snacks/Hill food relax

Day 3

Transfer to Djirgital (6 to 7 hours).

Day 4

Helicopter flight to Base camp at Moskvina Glade.

Days 5 - 6

Acclimatisation walks around BC.

Days 7 - 8

Acclimatisation days on Vorobyova Peak (5691m), with possible camp above 5000m. Return to BC

Day 9

Rest and preparation day at Base Camp.

Day 10

We ascend to Camp 1 5300m with food and some personal gear. Porters move group equipment. The route follows a well-marked path across the Moskvina Glacier to its head. 3-4 in-situ fixed ropes may be used for the later section.The path traverses the slope to where the glacier butts up against the rocky sidewall. Here we leave the glacier and cross the rocks. Stone-fall is a real danger here, so helmets are a must. The camp at 5300m sits on the right bank moraine.

Day 11

Today we make a small carry up to Camp 2 at 5800m and then return to Camp 1 for the night. Porters move group gear. The Ascent to Camp 2 is up a moderately steep ice and snow slope, then rope up and cross some crevasses at its upper part. The final approach to Camp 2 involves ascending steep slope jutting to the peaks’ south-west rock wall. The tents are protected from rock-falls by some overhangs.

Day 12

Return to BC

Day 13

Rest Day.

Days 14 - 15

Ascend to Camp 2 over two days.

Day 16

Ascent to Camp 3. A long traverse takes us across the ice-snow slope under the south-west wall towards Camp 3. The slope is steep, so we use 4 fixed ropes. Due to rock-fall and avalanche threat, this traverse presents a serious objective danger and care must be taken. A steep 100m section is climbed using fixed ropes. After climbing over a minor pinnacle called “Parus” we come to a saddle (6100m), where several tents can be placed. A much better place (the normal one for the assault camp), is further along the ridge, behind a 20m high vertical rock step, on a wide snow slope (6400m).

Day 17

Summit Day. We walk initially across a wide snow slope, then move, using either fixed ropes or belaying, along a narrow knife-edge ridge (6550m). At 6700m the ridge broadens out into the summit slope, providing an easy finish to the ascent. We return to Camp 3 or Camp 2.

Days 18 - 23

Reserve summit days if required. (If doing Ismoil Somoni, see itinerary above).

Day 24

Descend to Base Camp.

Day 25

Helicopter and road transfer back to Dushanbe.

Day 26

Reserve Helicopter Day.

Day 27

Early morning departure for international flights.

Nothing wrong about Adventure Peaks! Super professional and I felt in good hands all the way through. Stu, you were fantastic! If there was an option to sort trips by expedition leader on the website, I would sort by your name!...Andrei, the Russian guide, I cannot thank that guy enough. He was amazing...just outstanding. A machine. If I were to be rescued from anywhere in the world, I would feel safe the moment I saw Andrei step out of the helicopter. Please, make sure to use him on more trips!

A well planned expedition among the stunning peaks of Tajikistan, with plenty of time in the schedule for acclimatisation and several spare summit days. Base camp is austere but busy. Route presents a wide variety of terrain, from boulders and scree to glacier crossings, steep snow slopes and short sections of steep rock, long snow covered ridges and wide snow fields, most with fantastic views of the surrounding peaks (weather permitting).
