4th Aug – After a successful trip in the unclimbed peaks the team had their final meal last night before going their separate ways. All in all they managed to bag 7 new peaks and a number of new routes on previously climbed peaks.

 

Paddy, David, Radim, Henrik & Laurent have now headed over to Karakol en-route to climb Khan Tengri. The rest of the team have returned to Bishkek for their return flights back to the UK.

 

2nd Aug – The team have bagged another two peaks. The weather has been a bit mixed at times but doesn’t seem to be holding back the team.

31st July – The team have climbed some new routes on some of the peaks climbed last year. To celebrate they had a dinner of Marmot and potato stew. Today they took the 4×4 to access some remote peaks further down the valley, which involved a full submersion river crossing in the 4×4. They have established an ABC and will spend the next 3 days climbing on these new peaks.

30th July – Paddy has emailed in to say the group have climbed a few peaks aleady and are looking at setting some new routes on previously climbed peak.

27th July – The team arrived at base camp yesterday and have made their first exploratory walk today. They have identified some objectives for tomorrow’s first attempt at bagging a new peak.

25th July – Paddy has emailed in to say that the group have now landed and have been out for a nice meal.  They are now in Tamga and are planning to head up to the unclimbed base camp tomorrow it is from here their adventures start.

The Tien Shan is an amazing place for remote mountaineering with many peaks still unclimbed. Combine this with Khan Tengri, regarded as one of the worlds most beautiful peaks, and you end up with one of the best mountaineering exeriences offered in our brochure.

21st July – the team will depart for Bishkek on the 23rd July.
