Andrey has called from ABC to say the team are now back down safe after making their summit bid. The team reached 6300m on their summit day, but with a combination of weather and fatigue the team decided to call it a day and head back down. Tomorrow they will descend to base camp and then depart for Osh on Thursday.
Everyone has now been up to 6100m and are now resting comfortably at Advance Base Camp. It looks like there is reasonable weather coming in so they will wait for the weather window before making a push for the summit.
Andre called to say that the group are all well. They are at camp 2 and are going to push up to camp 3 to sleep tomorrow.
Andrey has called in with a report letting us know they have now completed an acclimatisation walk up to 4700m and completed a skills day practising crevasse rescue. The team are all feeling good and enjoying playing in the snow!
All of the team are at Base Camp starting acclimatisation before moving up to Advanced Base Camp
The group meets up with guides in Osh. BC tomorrow but they already start climbing Lenin.
Today the team arrive in Bishkek in the morning with time to explore the sights, bazaars and do our shopping for mountain snacks.
