Kyrgyz Unclimbed Peaks

Altitude 6200m, Grade 3C

Live a mountaineer’s true dream; summit a virgin unclimbed peak in a remote and beautiful region of  Kyrgyzstan.

Description

The Kyrgyz Unclimbed Peaks expedition was introduced in 2001 by Adventure Peaks Director Dave Pritt to this exceptional destination. It has now seen many highly successful expeditions with over 45 new peaks climbed. The mountains in this remote area of Asia are Himalayan in stature, with the highest peak reaching 7443m. They form the rigid backbone between Kyrgyzstan and China. During our adventure, we will attempt to summit up to three of the yet unclimbed peaks, at altitudes of between 5200-6200m.

We take a rugged approach to the mountains by means of a large six-wheel drive former soviet truck (with seats) to our wild and remote base camp surrounded by extensive unclimbed territory up to 6200m. We take acclimatisation very seriously and undertake initial exploratory walks to identify potential routes and climbs. This is a very exciting period; as close to ‘true’ mountaineering as one could imagine. Most potential peaks require a subsidiary camp that is placed higher in the basin.

This excellent expedition offers a fantastic introduction to the challenges of high altitude mountaineering for those who are technically competent on Scottish Grade 2/3 ground. There are numerous more technical routes for those who climb at harder grades and a few at a lower grade. Gazing out onto the panorama from Base Camp you will undoubtedly feel the magnetism of these potential challenges.

This expedition can be extended to climb Khan Tengri 7010m or Peak Lenin
