Tien Shan Peak Chapeyev

Altitude 6073m, Grade 3C

Peak Chapayev a classic snow climb in the Tien Shan with stunning views of Khan Tengri.

One of our best Expeditions, Director, David Pritt, introduced this expedition to bring this most spectacular and unspoilt region into the reach of the less experienced mountaineer.  The mountains in this remote area of Asia are Himalayan in stature, with the highest peak reaching 7443m.  They form the rigid backbone of Kyrgyzstan, wedged between China and Kazakhstan.

Our exhilarating journey to Base Camp is initially taken by helicopter up the Inylchek Glacier.  At close proximity, you will fly through a vast panorama of classical glaciated and jagged peaks. Our initial period of acclimatisation will be spent practicing glacial skills and climbing Karly Tau 5450m, overlooked by the most northerly 7000m peaks in the world before attempting the shoulder of, Peak Chapayev (6210m) our main objective. We share the route with those attempting to summit the majestic Khan Tengri 6995m.  The ascent involves establishing two camps en route, but our approach will be richly rewarded with a vista of tremendous proportions.  With our ambition achieved, we can gaze across to the jewel of the Tien Shan itself, Khan Tengri. Its elegant ridges and pyramidal peak elevates its beauty to that of the distinguished profiles of Ama Dablam and the Matterhorn as some of the most beautiful peaks in the world.

The mountaineering does include steep snow slopes close to Scottish Grade I /11 and some steep mixed climbing (grade II) over rock, snow and ice to reach camp 2.
