20th July

On Monday evening, 15th July,  we recieved word form our agent that the government helicopter used for Korzhenevskaya & Ismoil Somoni was not avaialable for the planned dates of the trip. This left the team with a very difficult decsion of cancel their trip that they had been preparing for, or to still fly on the 17th July and overland into Kyrgyzstan to climb Peak Lenin. Well as the trek into Moskavina Glade was eventually deemed out of the question by the Russian rope fixing team, the team decided to make good use of the time they have and to head out of Tajikistan and climb Peak Lenin. All being well they will cross the border into Kyrgyzstan on Thursday and after lunch in Osh will drive to Achik Tash (Peak Lenin Base Camp).
