Peak Lenin Expedition
12th August – 5th September 2017
Expedition Leader: Stu Peacock
The group are now down in Osh enjoying some sightseeing before flights home. Stu has sent in some great photos from the mountain.
Summit Success ! Stu called from camp 4 to say that despite a cold and windy start to the night the team made the summit of Peak Lenin. Congratulations to Stu, Kent, Jane and Andre. They were the only team to summit today and are sure it was because we used the additional camp 4.
Stu called in to say that the team will move to camp 4 tomorrow and then attempt the summit 28th to make the best of the weather window that has appeared.
The team spent a windy snowy night at 6100m, and yesterday was a hard day descending in the heat of the frying pan from Camp 3 to ABC. Today and tomorrow are rest days as the team begin to watch the weather and look towards their summit bid.
Stu called today to say that the team are doing well. Despite strong cold winds, our plucky adventurers have made it to Camp 3 at 6100m. We will sleep here for 1 night then head back down to the comfort of ABC.
The team are now all safely at basecamp and making preparations to move further up the mountain.
