PAMIR experience 2016: looking for Lenin 10/10/2016 16:14 #1480

Shipment to Peak Lenin, 7134 meters, in Kyrgizstan (former URSS), from 4 July to 26 July 2016. We are in 6: Nana, Anna, Cinzia, Alvise and Lorenzo. I add to this group already affiatato and with already experiences similar to the shoulders and I am greeted beautifully. A beautiful tune and atmosphere: as it says ... a few, but good. There we meet local guide Valery, Ak-Sai travel: valid and helpful ... and above all, for what has been seen there, moderate, modest, calm and sympathetic. We will share with him all the days of stay. Flight Venice-Istanbul-Osh. From here with 250 km in a van (very uncomfortable, especially the last stretch to say dirt is an euphemism: winds of rivers, meadows, stone) directly to the Base Base at 3600 meters (where we arrive already on the evening of the second day, the 5 ). Comfortable accommodation for the budgeted in comfortable two-seater curtains with on-site mattress and meals served in the canteen tent. Acclimatization on Traveler's Peak (4200 m), top notch on highway and high street, and on a 4000 meters to Peak Petrowski. The whimsical conditions of the time arise from the very beginning: in a day one passes by thirty inches of new snow, wind, storm, sun and hot heat with green meadows and stretches of alpine stars. With the help of big weight horses (25 kg per head on the shoulder), we move the 8 July to the 1 Field or Advanced Base Camp (ABC), 4400m, where we will stay 15 days without ever falling off to BC. Another day of acclimatization at Peak Domashniy, 4700 meters, and tops near 4500 meters and starts for 2 Field (5300 meters) and 3 Field (6100 meters). The first climb over 6000 takes place on 11 July, but despite the physicist's response to all (and more, for less disturbances than any other), and the good weather, it is too early to attempt the summit Reduced acclimatization. Then you come back to the ABC for "rest days". We will come back to sleep at C3 after stopping at C2 on July 17 (I, Anna, Alvise and Nane) and the 22 (only me and Anna) with course Valery always on the front line ... Unfortunately, too random (which does not allow to plan Surely the uphill) and a really whimsical weather see us retreat for stormy winds and snowstorms every turn, arriving to the ABC. The good weather window will finally come from 24 to 26 in July when, for obvious logistical issues (horses transport, van carriage, members waiting for us from days to BC, last flights ... and also the extension of holidays For somebody) unfortunately we are going back now. A bit bitter in the mouth remains, but there is still the awareness of a unique experience, in remote places, for strong, fulfilling, full experiences, with special people ...

Storm before descending
It retraces the descent. Moral heels ... but soon it ascends to the knowledge of being still in a fantastic place, and have made an unforgettable experience
