Nikita Slotin, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Kyrgyzstan:
Our group made an attempt to climb Lenin Peak. The wind forecast for 6500 promised 30 km/h, but in real life at 6200 the wind was so strong that we were thrown down the slope. We decided to go down to the third camp. Tomorrow the forecast is a little better, we will try again. But the gap in the weather for the next few days is not visible at all! The weather changes every day and what we see on the websites, unfortunately, does not correspond to reality! And now we're playing a guessing game. The mountain shows character and does not allow climbers.
