Peak Lenin

Peak Lenin 21st July 2022 Expedition

Leader: Robin Beadle

3rd Aug

Sadly the heavy snow and the delays this has caused to the team means that plans to summit Peak Lenin will now have to be abandoned. They still hope to venture to Camp 3 to retrieve the equipment and summit Razdelnaya, while up there.

1st Aug

The heavy snow forecast over the weekend kept to it’s word. No progress was being made above the fixed lines on the steepening due to the poor weather conditions. Porters attempted to move to Camp 2, but had to return to ABC. After giving it some time for the snow to settle, the team are planning to move up to Camp 2 tomorrow.

27th July

The team have made an acclimatisation walk up to the top of Yukina Peak today and are now back at ABC. They will make their final preparations before moving up to Camp 2 on Peak Lenin.

23rd July

Robin has called in to say that they have arrived at base camp and all is well with the group. Tomorrow they will walk up to 4200m for acclimatisation and will then sort out the kit needed to move up to ABC.

20th July

The team will depart the UK tomorrow. They will arrive in Osh on the 22nd and make their final preparations. On the 23rd they will drive to Achik-Tash (Peak Lenin base camp). The tracker with the group will start from the 23rd.
