Nikita Slotin, the guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Kyrgyzstan:
Camp 1 Lenin peak is in touch! Today we held much-needed classes on ice this season! We learned how to use the jumar and the "basket", mentally thanked the French for these devices! We have worked out the movement in crampons on the glacier and now we are deservedly resting, recuperating! At night we go out to Camp 2, there will be no connection there. The weather is windy, the mountain shows character! We can only hope for the best.
