20th July

On Monday evening, 15th July,  we recieved word from 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 the team decided to make good use of the time they have and headed out to Tajikistan. They crossed the border into Kyrgyzstan today and after lunch in Osh drove to Achik Tash (Peak Lenin Base Camp), where they were met by our leader Andrei. They will spend a day or so acclimatising around BC before heading up to ABC at 4200m.
